Gammy winner and Harlemite Kelis joins the new shiny-floor TV series Pitch Battle in London she aims to do for singing what another Harlemite Alicia Keys did on The Voice in the states – she’ll be making dreams come true in the judges’ chairs.
Kelis is quite the internationally acclaimed singer-songwriter, recognised at the Brit Awards, Q Awards, NME Awards, and Grammy Awards.
And she knows a thing or two about getting the mix of voices just right, as she has collaborated with R&B and hip hop acts including Busta Rhymes and Clipse, electronic and dance producers such as Calvin Harris, pop and rock acts Enrique Iglesias and No Doubt, and indie and alternative musicians including Björk and Dave Sitek.
Oh and did you know she’s had ten singles in the UK Top Ten singles chart? We’ll have whatever milkshake she’s having, please.
Taking place across six episodes, Pitch Battle will air this summer on BBC1 where it is expected to go head-to-head with ITV’s The Voice Kids.
