Kala Banham Performs "My Funny Valentine" | The Voice Playoffs | NBC
Hometown: Kissimmee, FL
Resident: Windermere, FL
As a first-generation American, Kala wouldn’t be where she is today without her Australian roots and Filipino culture. At big family gatherings, Kala’s Lola would ask her to sing for everyone, rewarding her granddaughter with $5 following each performance. That upbringing eventually led Kala to pursue music wherever she could - singing in her high school jazz band, leading worship in church and joining a competitive collegiate a cappella group. Since graduating from university, Kala has been working as a public relations account executive and supports media relations for tech companies in the music industry. The busy nature of her career has put performing on the back burner, but now Kala is looking for the opportunity to break into the music industry.
