Erika Kayne was already something of a singing veteran in her hometown of Cleveland, Oh for nearly a decade since she made here first song at 14 years old and it took the cities high schools by storm.
It has a been a long hard road for this talented young lady to get the attention she needed to go beyond her city lights. All it took was one repost of a video of her singing while she was hard at work bar tending at her fathers restaurant.
One repost from the likes of Hip Hop Icon Snoop Dogg which would set off a firestorm of changing events, one after another for this Cleveland born girl whose life will never be the same again.
Over 10 million views over night and she became a viral house hold name and a instant national news starlet.
She was then asked to appear on just about every nation news talk show there is to show off her blown away talent.
After traveling around the country she has returned home for a special live performance as the opening act for R&B/Soul Legend Lyfe Jennings at the Cleveland House Of Blues.
She allowed me to get full backstage access and talks very candidly about her process to the stage.
