Keith “KJ” Johnson was born September 23, 1978. At a very young age he enjoyed performing. He first started singing at the tender age of five. For most of his childhood throughout his late teenage years, he sang with local family groups including The Living Lights and The Gospel Souls. After losing his mother at the age of twelve, music became the catalyst to help him become transparent about his pain, fears, joy, and struggles. Through his songs, everyone can hear his expressive passion behind what he’s been created to do.
Music has always been a part of Keith. He enjoys writing, singing, and producing all genres of music. He has been inspired by artists such R. Kelly, Boyz II Men, Commissioned, and John P. Kee because of their writing styles and unique ability to convey music.
