At the age of five, when most little girls are just dreaming of being the New Whitney Houston, Singer/songwriter Kasha was making it happen. When she was five, the Brooklyn native, Kasha was singing in her church and glee choir throughout her elementary and junior high. Aside from singing and dancing, she liked skating and doing hair.
Kasha started vocal lessons at the age of six and took dance lessons at the age of 4 until the age of 13, along with piano lessons. Her mother, who was a teacher and vocal trainer at the time, was a big inspiration to Kasha when she was young; it was because of her that Kasha decided to become a star.
At the age of 14, Kasha’s mom, the backbone of her family and the inspiration for Kasha’s music, passed away. Kasha’s older sister Tamiko stepped up to the plate and took care of Kasha and her brother, from that moment on. Her sister made sure both Kasha and her brother stayed on the straight path and guided them through their lives until they were adults. Kasha fell into a deep depression from the death of her mother and as she put it, “Everything just slowed down. I had to really find myself at the age of 14”. Her mother was everything to her not only in her everyday life, but musically as well. It took a while to get back in the swing of things, but this tragedy only strengthened Kasha’s dream of becoming a singer and when she was 15, she started her long journey to achieving her goals; taking every step with her mother in her heart and soul.
At 16, Kasha knew she had to educate herself about the music industry and that’s exactly what she did. She went to the library and read up on trademarks, copyrights and all of the behind-the-scenes aspects of the music business. She became a member of ASCAP and would attend weekly meetings to further her education on the music industry. She now has her own publishing and writer’s situation at ASCAP as a result.
