Kelly Bado is a bilingual singer-songwriter who takes you on a beautiful journey with her songs. Kelly discovered her musical and artistic passions at a young age performing in local choirs in her native Ivory Coast.

Kelly ventured to Canada in December 2007, where her love of music continued to flourish. In early 2016, Kelly started to work with Chris Burke-Gaffney (who developed and managed Chantal Kreviazuk) recording few songs which led to being one of three artists chosen by Manitoba Music to journey to Los Angeles to showcase for a selected group of music industry heavyweights. Kelly’s unique talent and writing/recording songs for a new project while Kelly continues to promote her French language EP, “Entre Deux”, for which she received 2 nominations at the 2017 Breakout West Awards: Francophone Artist of the Year and World Music Artist of the Year.

With lyrics inspired by love, hope and social equality, and a sound that marries pop with R&B/Soul and her African background, one cannot help but get swept away into Kelly’s magical voice. She received the honour to perform in Ottawa, on Parliament Hill, as part of Canada’s 150th Celebrations. 

Kelly Bado performs as part of the "Music 'N' Mavens" daytime concert series, 2 PM Thursday, February 15 at the Rady JCC! For more information, visit: http://www.radyjcc.com/cultural-events/music-n-mavens/
