Keia Johnson Releases Two Soulful Holiday Singles
Former American Idol and The Voice contestant brings holiday cheer
Memphis, TN: Former American Idol and The Voice contestant Keia Johnson has released two holiday singles, “The Christmas Song” and “Someday At Christmas” and is gearing up for a slate of performances including the 7th Annual Wishing Carols on Saturday Dec. 23 from 5-8pm at the Memphis Slim Collaboratory (1130 College Street). Johnson will come together with other artists of the Memphis music community and debut her holiday singles while spreading holiday cheer. Proceeds will support the Midsouth Food Bank’s “Operation Feed The Need” initiative to purchase and distribute food, clothing, and care kits for the homeless.
Johnson says, “I love the holidays and this year with all the tension and anxiety in the air due to our political climate, I thought it was especially important to do my part to be thoughtful and so I did ‘Someday at Christmas.’ Christmas means love, family, food, spreading good tidings of great joy. It means extra tight hugs and hot chocolate. Classic movies and music. It is my favorite time of the year.”
Johnson has been cultivating her career and talents since she was a part of American Idol and The Voice. She toured internationally with B.B. King’s Club on Holland America Cruise Lines. She has been featured on a number of singles such as Young LA’s “Georgia”, a rich and soulful cover of Emily King’s hit, and experimenting with jazzy acoustics with Memphis’ own T.O. Crivens on “The Christmas Song.” With so much in store for 2018, Johnson invites the seasonal cheer and has a few wishes of her own.
Johnson says, “I wish no women had to be subjected to abuse. I wish America was more accepting of all the cultures that make up this country. I wish racism was eradicated. I wish we would all love each other just a little more. Before the end of the year, I wish to perform with the amazing PJ Morton in New Orleans!”
Keia Johnson’s holiday singles can be purchased on iTunes and Amazon and available for streaming on Spotify.
