Born and raised in Harlem, New York, Kelis Rogers, better known by just her first name, first came to prominence singing the hook of Ol' Dirty Bastard's hit Got Your Money. Years of chart dominating songs and thrilling, boundary-pushing music followed resulting in millions of albums sold and numerous top 10 hits. She has released six albums, won Brit, Q and NME Awards, and has been nominated for two Grammy Awards. Her latest album, Food, made with a live band and horn section, mints a sound that is rootsy, raw and soulful without ever being retro. Upon release, the album was praised as one of her most adventurous works yet. Kelis has toured every corner of the world, performed at every major festival and shared the stage with the world's top artists. A fashion icon and designer muse since the early days of her career, she is celebrated for a personal style which is often as creative and forward-thinking as the music she makes. Aside from her career in music, Kelis is a Le Cordon Bleu-trained chef with multiple television cooking specials and a burgeoning entrepreneurial streak with her Bounty & Full organic sauce line.
