Michigan native Kalysta Sylvester, a culmination of soulful influences including Aretha Franklin and Alicia Keys, has been performing since a very young age.
She drew inspiration from her family’s roots in Detroit along with the use of Motown’s funk and soul as an effective form of home therapy. Kalysta used music as an escape from her timidness when she was a young girl, wielding a comfort of self-expression only experienced on stage. To experience Kalysta perform is to experience her zenith.
Kalysta finds a harmonious balance of serenity and passion when she takes to the stage; thriving on every moment spent pouring the entirety of her soul into her performance in hopes of moving the hearts of those in the crowd. her mantra, “music connects everyone”, is deeply rooted with her dream of being a philanthropist of love, soul, and energy.
