The MOBO-nominated R&B star supports Black History Month in a new campaign.
MN2S PR client and MOBO-nominated R&B singer Keisha White has been featured in a new campaign for Black History Month from Enfield Council. As an Enfield native, this campaign struck close to home for Keisha, who is committed to supporting her hometown and spreading a positive message this Black History Month. Keisha has been featured on promotional materials for Enfield Council’s campaign that will be displayed in Enfield’s secondary schools, libraries and council buildings.
Hailing from London, White attended the Susi Earnshaw Theatre School in Barnet as a teenager. At the age of 14, she auditioned for Warner Bros Records, one of the biggest labels in the world. Executives were so impressed with her acapella rendition of Aretha Franklin’s “If You Should Lose a Good Thing” that they signed her on the spot. Within a year, she got her first taste of chart success when she sang on house legend’s Paul Oakenfold’s top-forty hit ‘The Harder They Come’ (which also featured trip-hop innovator Tricky). In 2005, she collaborated with US rapper Cassidy on ‘Don’t Care Who Knows’, giving her another chart hit. Later that year, her debut album Seventeen was released. 2006 saw her achieve further chart success with ‘The Weakness in Me’ and receive a MOBO nomination for Best New Female Artist. Since then, White has released another album (Out of My Hands) and a run of charting singles. Live, she has shared stages with major R&B artists such as The Black Eyed Peas, Angie Stone, and Craig David.
