Kristanecia King is a talented, well rounded, young singer who has been singing since the age of three years old. Her love and passion of music is expressed through various genres like jazz, classical, and gospel/inspirational music. She also has a physical disability called arthrogryposis, which is a congenital deformity of the joints. Although she has faced physical limitations due to her disability, she has never allowed it to discourage her from pursuing her music career. Kristanecia has been the featured songstress for all of Fragile Kids Foundation's charity events for over three years and most recently, she has been the affiliated songstress of Childkind, Incorporations. Fragile Kids Foundation is especially close to her heart.
