Here’s part II of our interview with Kelly Price. She’s definitely busy with the community and gearing up for her new album coming out this October. check out what Kelly had to say.
ELEV8: Are you involved with any other community service projects?
KELLY PRICE: Yes, I’m involved with this exciting organization called, “Broadway in the Hood.” They’re based out of Las Vegas and setting up satellite locations now. The company is working with kids and teens who have been in high risk circumstances such as parents in jail or rehab, been homeless etc. We’re creating a positive outlet and getting them off the streets and showing them various aspects of Broadway and the arts in front and behind the stage. The program is giving kids the same opportunities that suburban kids have been afforded in the past. I know for me as a kid I started writing music at 7 and needed an outlet to expand my creativity. I got involved to assist kids like me who are creative and interested in music and arts. Other celebrities like Boris Kodjoe, Mekhi Phifer and Craig Robinson are involved.
ELEV8: That is great to hear about all that you’re doing but when can we hear new music from you?
KELLY PRICE: (laughs) very soon. My album is scheduled to release October 2010. The first single is entitled, “TIRED.” I’m really excited about this album because its probably the realest Kelly Price album of my career. I am more comfortable and have more freedom due to just becoming wiser as I’m striving to be the best that I can be. I’m singing about things that concern me and are relatable to women and men. I’ve come to know that it’s OK and we’re only human. I’m really looking forward to this album.
ELEV8: With your album coming out this fall, have you collaborated with any other artists?
KELLY PRICE: Yes, since I’ve moved to LA, I’ve started writing music for other artists in addition to doing work with upcoming television and movie projects.
ELEV8: Congratulations and All the Best with everything. We look forward to seeing and hearing about all of the wonderful things you’re doing in the community and world.
KELLY PRICE: Thank you for the opportunity! Take care.
