TEA Volume 13 compilation artist Kelita has a career that is full of success and all inspiring. When Kelita sings, people pay attention. Her rich, warm voice captures the ear immediately. Her clear, honest lyrics speak directly to the heart. Kelita, who knew she wanted to be a performer at age four, is a singer-songwriter whose career has seen many highlights. Well known across Canada for her superb musical achievements, Kelita’s new Contemporary Christian music is the most personal and moving work she has produced to date.
Amongst many Kelita has shared stages with Jim Carrey, Reba McEntire, Randy Travis and Michelle Wright, and performed on numerous television programs including Nashville Now, The Tommy Hunter Show, Sun Country (a booster of both Kelita and K.D. Lang in their early days and the Canadian Country Music Awards (CCMA) show. Her Song “New Love” received the Country Music News Fan Award for Single of the Year and in 1988 Kelita recorded “Neighbours of the World”, the official song for Calgary during the Winter Olympics. She soon had three Top 10 singles to her name, and was presented with the CCMA Vista Rising Star Award.
Kelita’s life took a new turn when she met Gord Lemon (Kelita’s producer and co-writer) on her second UN tour. They were married and produced their greatest creation to date – their son Keldon. During that time, Kelita teamed up with Inuit recording artist Susan Aglukark to write “Kathy I” and the top 10 hit “Breakin’ Down” on Susan’s platinum selling album “This Child”. But it’s Kelita’s personal work that definitely has her full attention. Her music has taken on the exuberant tones and textures of gospel and her lyrics now reach far beyond the surface. Kelita’s autobiographical ballads are heartbreaking in their honesty, yet uplifting and filled with a gently healing quality. Grappling with vulnerability, coping with a dysfunctional family and finally, finding strength in God. Listen to Kelita
