MY DOWNTIME WITH ...Kelly Price

Published:Sunday | February 7, 2010 | 12:00 AM

At the age of seven, Kelly Price penned her first song and shortly thereafter went on to voice her first recording. Decades later, the more experienced and mature Price is still wooing audiences across the world with her amazing talent.

A Grammy nominee, singer, songwriter and now author, this songbird recently formed the Queen Project group along with international singers, Tamia and Deborah Cox. The trio made their debut appearance at this year's Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival in Trelawny.

Having toured the world and getting the chance to work with many top acts internationally, Price no doubt delivered on the big stage with exuberance, hitting note after note, holding her own as part of the trio.

We asked her:

Where was the last interesting place you visited?

My grandma's place in Jamaica, Queens, New York, because that is a very special place for me. I also visited Las Vegas over the Christmas holidays.

What music are you listening to now?

I am listening to a lot of gospel. I am also listening Jazmine Sullivan, Chrisette Michele, Tamia and Deborah Cox.

What was the last book you read?

Because of my travels, instead of reading, I mostly listen to audio books, and the last one was 23 Minutes in Hell by Bill Wiese.
