As a young girl, a tv-performance of Michael
Jackson led Kellie Jaxson to having just one goal:
The stage! I knew right away: This was what I
wanted to do, Kellie says. No wonder the German
native with Scandinavian roots already celebrated
great success as a Latin- and Hip Hop-dancer from
the tender age of 11. With her goal in sight she
left Germany for the USA to learn from the best
choreographers in the world and expand her
dancing-skills. So far Kellie has been trained by
such professionals as, Tina Landon (Janet
Jackson), Fatima Robinson (Aaliyah), Marty Kudelka
(Justin Timberlake) and Ben Harper (Will Smith).
When Kellie performed live on stage at the
ShowStopper-Awards in Atlanta, no one knew that in
the next few minutes they were about to witness
the start of a remarkable music-career. Being the
only white contestant of the well-known
talent-show on the east-coast, she astonished the
audience with her dance-performance to the Janet
Jackson song If. But there was more. Her
following vocal interpretation of Exhale (Shoop
Shoop) brought out her Blue-Eyed Soul for the
first time. As the winner of the night, she was
accepted for the annual M.Y.O.B.-talent-program
and started her workshops in choreography,
singing, acting and modelling right away. It was
the best education for me. My learning experience
covered everything about the business, both on and
off the stage, says Kellie.
ShowStopper-producer Yomi Bingham instantly saw
Kellies extraordinary talent and as a result, her
debut-single Making my own break was released
just weeks later. The track achieved considerable
radio airplay and intense media interest. In the
course of the following tour Kellie performed in
colleges, clubs and events, such as a gala, where
she shared the stage with such acclaimed artists
as Usher and TLC. The combination of her soulful,
emotional and sensual voice, together with
breathtaking moves and style soon captivated
It came as no surprise that the casting-agents of
Spelling Productions were taken by Kellies charm
at an audition and offered her not only a guest
role in the hit-series Beverly Hills 90210 but
also an appearance in the confederate-epos
Savannah, alongside stars like George Eads (CSI,
Even though Kellie follows up with acting, music
is her life. Influenced by the Motown-sound of the
60-ies she develops her own style and soon the
press is calling her The voice of white
Pop-RnB. As a result, she is honoured with the
award of Talent of the year presented to her
personally by Atlantas mayor, Bill Campbell.
Kellie is highly recognized for her determination
in being a strong role model for young people,
especially young girls. She says: The lack of
school-education and the increase of alcohol and
drug abuse among teenagers scares me. Kids are our
future. Therefore Kellie is involved in many
charity-projects and she has even donated the
gains of her first single to students that
couldnt afford a college-education.
Back in Germany, Kellie slowed it down a little.
Making contacts into the business turned out to be
much harder than in the US. All of a sudden I was
in there alone, without having the supporting team
I was used to relying on, Kellie remembers, but
Ive never given up and made my way here too.
Over the years Kellie has performed on many shows
such as the You-fair and also the premiere of
Star Wars III, where she caught the attention of
London-based actor and songwriter CJ Simpson, who
was so taken away by her versatility and
expression that he started writing a couple of
songs for Kellie. He also produces her demos.
Some time ahead of the FIFA-European Soccer
Championships in Germany Kellie gets the
opportunity to co-write and record the song Kick
the ball man which even makes it into the final
round for the official theme song. She performs
the song at many events during the tournament.
Thanks to her acting talent and remarkable
charisma, Kellie draws a lot of attention in the
movie-scene as well. So far she has featured in
many films and tv-series like Blaze (Til
Schweiger), Alles Atze (Atze Schroeder) and
Vollidiot (Oliver Pocher).
As a result, Kellie gets on head of the biggest
talent-contest of all German speaking countries
Youmeu. The first songs for her upcoming single
and album are produced and even a video is shot
and aired on MTV and VIVA. Even at this time, with
the release yet to come, Kellie causes a furore.
The presentation of her tracks on MySpace and
several other community-sites have led to a
worldwide positive feedback, thousands of fans,
new industry collaborations and contacts.
Particularly in the US and UK the interest in the
entertainer is unbroken.
Kellie represents the white Pop-RnB like no
other. Listeners can literally feel her passion
and honesty in every show. The connection with the
audience is undeniable. There was a time in my
life where I wanted to be a black girl. Now I know
that music is not black or white, you just have to
let your heart and soul speak. Every song of mine
is a part of me, she says.
People always try to mark black-music artists. But
understanding means to be able to read between the
lines. The words will not necessarily tell the
whole story, Kellie says. Through my songs I
share my experiences, thoughts and dreams. I take
the audience on a journey with me. Like when I
tell boys to back up in my songs, the words might
sound angry at first, but if you listen closely
you will find the whole truth. Im a strong and
independent woman and nobody is playing me for a
fool. If you cant handle me then you better not
waste my time.
Kellie knows exactly what she wants and works
extremely hard to make it to the top. With the
soon to be released single and album she will take
the music-world by storm. There will be no
escaping the charisma of this exceptional artist.
Kellie Jaxson will melt your heart as she
continues her global dominance. Kellie is the
positive force that the industry rarely finds, yet
embraces with so much passion when discovered and
showcased to the world. Kellie beams a mesmerising
ray of light from a shining star.
