Kyla's voice was born in church and developed its power through performing in gospel choirs. After college, Kyla got her first big break when she joined the Nashville Super Choir on "Bobby Jones Gospel," the longest running gospel show on BET. After nine years of traveling with the show, Kyla took some time off to care for family. Kyla feared it would be difficult to get back into the music scene until a friend asked her to audition as a background vocalist for Jennifer Hudson. Today, Hudson supports Kyla, pushes her and has been a huge motivator for Kyla to audition for "The Voice."
