KIA J has dedicated her life, talents, gifts and her art to spreading the message of the Gospel through her music, but more importantly in hopes that her life would inspire those who need it and bring encouragement to other young people wherever they are in their journey. KIA J is not only an aspiring Artiste but her passion for helping and inspiring others guided her into the field in Psychology of which she holds a Bachelors of Arts Degree. She believes that the knowledge and education which she has attained in this field has proven to be an asset within her ministry as an artiste. On Friday September 30, 2016, the general public will be given an opportunity to listen and be entertained by KIA J at the Victorious  Artiste Launch Concert which will take place at the grounds of the Castries Church of the Nazarene at Waterworks in Castries at 6:30 p.m. The concert is free and patrons will also be entertained by other local gospel artistes such as Alex Klien whose stage name is Swalty from Vieux and Ethan Fletcher & Wilburne Mathrurin who will debut their new single “A New Day”.
