Khalilah Rose

By Christine Harris—–

NEW JERSEY, USA – It’s not everyday you come across a person who is as dedicated, loyal, and truly sincere as the one Khalilah Rose dubbed by many as, “Reggae’s song bird”, but she’s not only a songstress, she’s an amazing song writer as well. She has a brand new 14 track CD titled “Zion’s Lullaby”, with the hit single Hail H.I.M which is being requested by radio stations nation wide, she has graced the cover of L3 Magazine, won 2012 Best New Female Artist, She’s done duets with Turbulence and Lutan Fyah, she’s shared the stage with artists like Etana, Everton Blender, Gyptian, Luciano, Capleton and a few more. She just left Jamaica where she conducted several media interviews and appeared on one of Jamaica’s number one TV programs “Hype TV Jamaica”, and now she’s performing in Europe. This young lady is taking

the world by storm; there is no doubt that Khalilah Rose is a musical sensation. usually comes with a hard road, paved with struggles and tribulations; Khalilah Rose is no exception.

But much like any success in life it

Khalilah knew at a young age that music was very much part of her everyday life, and knew that one day she too would be able to contribute her own words and melodies to the world of Vinyl (CD’s for all the younger heads out there). Growing up in a strict household, education and having a high corporate career wasn’t only expected it was a must. While obtaining her Masters in college Khalilah became pregnant and before she knew it she was out on her own fending for herself. Raising a child as a single mother is never an easy feat, but it’s even harder when you don’t have a support system, but Khalilah had two things her baby and her music and they became her driving force in her life. She took every experience and every emotion she had and felt and transformed them into songs, “Not Giving Up” is just one out of many, and that song can be heard on her CD, “Zion’s Lullaby”. Some might say that Khalilah has overcome all obstacles in life, but it’s unfortunate to report that there are a few in the reggae community that have decided to give her a fight.

When Khalilah is not in Jamaica she’s in New York, and her NY Team, especially her manager, works extremely hard to ensure that she’s performing on stage shows or making guest appearances on TV/Radio Stations. It is no stretch of the imagination to say that you’re sure to see a poster of Khalilah somewhere on the streets of New York; she’s definitely kept in the public eye and ear, so much so that it’s actually stirring up some animosity with other managers and fellow artists within the NY area. When asked about it in her recent interview with a California based radio station, Rasta Vibrations –FCC Free Radio–Khalilah responded by saying,

“I’ve done nothing wrong to them or anybody else; I don’t understand why they don’t like me anymore especially since we all seemed to have gotten along so well.”

Despite all the negativity that she hears on the NY streets, this only motivates her more. Just as any struggle Khalilah faces, she turns to what she does best and that’s music. And if Zion’s Lullaby is anything to go by, then all I can say to the NY managers and artist is continue to give her a fight because her next CD will only be greater.
