Kim Pratt – #100women
OUR 52ND WOMAN YOU SHOULD KNOW:
Ms.Kim Pratt definently is the epitome of Elegance and shines within her own way.
Gifted and anointed describes this beloved woman and artist known as KIM PRATT. Adept at artistic self-expression through song, poetry and musical lyricism, Kim Pratt captivates her listeners with her raw and honest approach of expressing real life experiences and situations in a way that motivates others to reflect deeply on their own lives.
Born in Norfolk, Virginia, but raised in Detroit, Michigan, Kim Pratt gleaned from her surroundings and learned music at an early age. Realizing her love for writing and the arts, she aspired to learn more about music and the music industry which resulted in a Bachelors of Music with a concentration in Music Industry Management from Wayne State University. “I love writing from my experiences, heartaches and prayers,” says Pratt. “My songs are conversations between God and myself…those pep talks as well as rebukes. God told me to be transparent with my walk and I hope my lyrics reflect that”. This artistic transparency has allowed her to share the stage with and open for national artists such as Karen Clark Sheard, Lisa McClendon, Papa San, Michelle Bonilla, Mahogany Jones, Da TRUTH and Tedashii, to name a few.
She furthered her journey of transparency by deciding to drop her stage name “Kiwi” and began using her actual name, Kim Pratt. “I felt it was time. I’ve matured as a person and as an artist and my music naturally followed suit…,” states Pratt. “Using my real name reflects my growth and where God is taking me.” With clearer vision and new focus, Kim Pratt looks forward to writing, producing and performing more music in the future and speaking life through the Word of God. “God is the Surgeon and my music is the EMS truck…we all need Him and my purpose is to take you to Him…”
