Kelly Bado

Weaving in influences from her African heritage, la chanson française, and American gospel, Kelly Bado’s music crosses cultural barriers to bring people together in joy and hope. Her striking vocals and uplifting melodies were recognized with several Awards. With lyrics inspired by love, celebration and social equality, Kelly is committed to the vision of an inclusive world where we come together as citizens of this vast planetary village – each contributing our unique strengths to the common experience.
After winning several singing contests, Kelly released a first EP “Entre deux” which was awarded World Music Artist of the Year at the 2018 Canadian Western Music Award. She then made it to the quarter-finals of La Voix 6 in Quebec. Her duet performance of the song Let it be was not only the best number of all the seasons combined, but it received a never-before-seen comment from Sir Paul McCartney.
Kelly has notably shared the stage at Canada’s 150th Celebrations with international artists such as Alessia Cara, Walk Off the Earth and Serena Ryder.
She has just received the Francophone Artist and Global Artist of the Year awards at the Canadian Western Music Award 2021, for her new album Hey Terre.
