Known and beloved in New York and London as Mistress of Ceremonies at the prestigious and provocative late night show/club, The Box, Seattle native Kimberly Nichole has been slaying stages for over a decade.
After graduating from Spelman College (Atlanta, Georgia) with a Bachelor's in Economics and relocating to New York, Kimberly made waves on the underground music scene as a ROCK singer, songwriter and captivating performer. Her original music has been heard on NETFLIX, MTV, Showtime, LOGO and VH1. And she was amongst some of the first indie artists to perform live on the BET Awards for their Music Matters segment for unsigned artist on the rise.
Kimberly Nichole’s career catapulted when she became a Finalist and breakout star on Season 8 of The Voice where Christina Aguilera served as her mentor. Her show stopping performances received standing ovations from the coaches every week and even landed her on Billboard's Top 100. Her performances have become the most iconic in the show's history.
Since then, she made her Broadway debut in 2018 in the limited engagement of Rocktopia where The New York Times praised her performance in the show. And in 2019 she was cast as The Acid Queen in The Who’s ‘Tommy’ at the John F Kennedy Center of Performing Arts; Broadway Series.
Nicknamed the ROCK ballerina for adorning custom made tutu ensembles, which she co designs - her style and beauty has led her to being featured in VOGUE magazine and in international commercials by brands such as Coca-Cola.
She’s shared stages with Christina Aguilera, Slash (Guns N Roses), Joe Walsh (The Eagles), Ledisi, Kehlani, Janelle Monae, Nona Hendryx (Labelle), Nancy Wilson (Rock & Roll Hall of Famer/Guitarist) and more.
She currently resides in London and is continuing to perform while writing and recording new music.
