My name is Janis Kelly and I am on a mission to elevate, educate and activate your body, mind and SOUL! A life-long musician, performer, and musical instigator, I have spent more than 30 years inviting, inciting and igniting musical passion and potential whenever and wherever I can! In 2006, after more than two decades as a professional jazz and r&b vocalist, I began composing, recording and performing my own music, which I call “higher vibe soul:” funk, jazz, gospel and Latin rhythms, combined with uplifting, inspirational lyrics! Honored to have shared the stage and studio with such musical legends as Carole King, Earth, Wind & Fire, The Neville Brothers, Tower Of Power, and Rufus & Chaka Khan, I have seen first-hand the power of music to build bridges of peace, harmony and commUnity, and I am proud to carry on that legacy in my own performances and musical endeavors! Please enjoy my site and feel free to drop me a line anytime! I look forward to connecting with you soon and remind you that, "...you deserve to have your dreams come true, and you are safe to say what's real for you, and you are recognized for what your presence brings to the world! Go ahead and love yourself!" May you feel truly loved today!
