Tell me about the legacy of Chic, and what it means to you? Well one reason for not only my love of Chic but my love for disco is because Chic’s Dance Dance Dance was the first disco song that I actually “got”. Then moving on to the others hits. “Chic Cheer”, “My forbidden lover” and “I want your Love” ( my fav) I was officially a Chic fan. Who would have thought that an opportunity would come for me to share the stage with Nile Rodgers and Chic.... for the past ten years.
What is your earliest memory of wanting to be a performer. Please! The minute I could talk I was singing. So from two years old it was always “ let the baby sing!” I loved pretending to perform on stage and then actually performing in school plays. The movie “FAME” was all the incentive I needed to know that’s what I wanted to do all during the day as well as at home. Thanks Mom!!! Xx
You toured with Earth, Wind & Fire… Now Cher. How does that feel? Touring with Earth, Wind and Fire was like being on the road with family. All the talent on all of the stages we performed on were overwhelming every night. Having Cher ASK to have Chic join her on her tour is AWESOME SAUCE!!! All I can think about is how FABULOUS that tour is gonna be.
How has this changed your life, family and relationships? What have you learned about fame? Yes there are some changes that have taken place. Like limited family time which is the most important. I try to have my man around me as much as he can stand the “tourlife”. And special moments with kids and family when I’m home. There’s also opportunities to see distant family when we travel which is the best. Throughout my years of singing I always had a 9-5 which I “retired” from the minute I started singing with Nile. THAT was definitely a leap of faith. Whose walking away from benefits and a 401K plan??!!!!!
Friends....I’ve learned not to use that word so freely. I’ve definitely lost a few of THOSE. But it only means they weren’t friends in the first place.
3 things you never leave home without: Since my life is mostly on and off of a flight Blanket and pillow Airborne Ricola cough drops My personalized flask Mini speakers Phone charger I could go on......
Favorite food? SEAFOOD!!!!!
Not for nothing but I attract the whole community lol. Friends, family members and my music have brought me into the LGBT way before they even had a proper name for it. I just love a BALL!! I live for all the “Houses”. I’m old school so Ive spent a lot of time in the clubs and on Christopher street in the village getting my life watching dancers vogue and I also learned how to beat my face from the only Queen. HELLO! - Kimberly Davis
What do you tell a young black girl today, looking at you? What advice? I would tell a young black lady to master her craft whatever it may be. Dont take the shortcut work hard for it, it’s better that way. Be fierce! But stay humble.
In 20 years, what do you hope Kimberly Davis will be doing, or will mean to the world? n 20 years? Dam hopefully I’ll be sitting down somewhere drinking a Bloody Mary at noon! LOL. I want to be remembered and talked about as the person that I am. I’ve been singing from the womb. It was my passion and it was Gods gift and hopefully I gave a few people the chills when I relayed my story in song.
What can your fans expect at the WHITE PARTY from you & your performance? A whole lot of FUN and FASHION!!
