Kelly Bado is a bilingual singer-songwriter who takes you on a beautiful journey with her songs. After discovering her musical and artistic passions at a young age performing in local choirs in her native Ivory Coast, Kelly ventured to Canada in December 2007, where her love of music continued to flourish. Her EP, Entre Deux, received two nominations at the 2017 Breakout West Awards: Francophone Artist of the Year and World Music Artist of the Year; and one nomination at the Canadian Folk Music Awards. With lyrics inspired by love, hope, and social equality, and a sound that marries pop with R&B/soul and her African background, one cannot help but get swept away into Kelly’s magical voice.
