Let the Games Begin: Kim Yarbrough of “The Voice” Sings for 1st of 4 Dodgers Vs. Mets Games
Thursday, June 28th 7 p.m. Season 2 Alum of “The Voice” Kim Yarbrough will honor America’s favorite pastime with her Bluesy Soulful Voice & make one of her Dreams Real, Singing the National Anthem for the Dodgers. Plus a look into her new CD.
Kim has performed with Stevie Wonder, Katie Sagal (she is a regular vocalist on all 4 seasons of the Sons of Anarchy Soundtrack), was featured in her own show called “Della Reese Presents Kim Yarbrough”, and has acted in TV Shows such as Bones, Dexter & Conan O’Brien.
Her vocal prowess has been compared to the likes of Aretha Franklin, Nancy Wilson and Barbara Streisand. Her latest comparison is "Jennifer Hudson meets Chaka Khan". She dominates every element - stage, film, recordings. Actress Sheryl Lee Ralph has dubbed her "Little Aretha," Teena Marie has labeled her voice as "The Truth," and legendary singer/actress, Della Reese is quoted as saying, "You owe it to yourself to see Kim Yarbrough."
She made LA her home nearly a decade ago, and since arriving in Southern California has enjoyed a dazzling career, holding her own alongside international artists and celebrities:
Kim has garnered national attention in commercials, television, motion pictures, radio and indie films. She recently made a guest starring appearance as an actress on the new Nick at Nite television series "Hollywood Heights".
Film making and writing her own original R&B, Gospel and Jazz songs are two more areas of genius for this exceptional artist. Kim has released two CDs: a single, "Nice and Slow" and "Dharma 888," an EP of inspirational songs, including "Road to Freedom," inspired by and written for the motion picture, "The Great Debaters."
