Kim Burrell is one of my favorite gospel artist and my pick for one of my favorite artist for Black Music History Month.
Kimberly Burrell is an American gospel singer from Houston, Texas. She calls her musical style jazz gospel. Though she is comparatively new to the gospel music industry, having only performed since 1989, she has quickly become one of the most influential voices in the genre, often said to be “this generation’s Ella Fitzgerald.
In 2010, she founded The Love & Liberty Fellowship Pentecostal Overcoming Holy Church, where she serves as Senior Eldress/Overseer-Bishop.
One of the first songs I hear from her.
Here is Kim Burrell with Whitney Houston, who onsidered Kim a mentor.
