Singer-songwriter Kim Kalman comes to the Pocahontas County Opera House Friday, Nov. 21 at 7:30 p.m.
A graduate of the College of William and Mary, in Virginia, Kalman earned her degree in business management while performing in local venues. After careful consideration, she chose to apply her business management skills to her own career in the music business. Kalman said she followed her heart and never looked back.
It’s a road that has taken her all the way to Nashville, where Kalman has recorded all of her current CDs: Moonlight, At Last, Close, and A Christmas to Remember, along with a trio of Contemporary Christian CDs, I’m Not Alone, Let The Door Swing Wide, and I Look To You.
Moonlight, featuring all original material by Kalman, includes songs that have gained her the honor of being named one of the top ten songwriters at the Kerrville Music Festival and Honorable Mention in the Billboard Song Contest.
Kalman’s true passion for music is revealed in her performances, from fundraisers, festivals and Fanfest, to appearing as a featured artist at the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, and Harrah’s Casinos in Atlantic City, Las Vegas and Lake Tahoe.
In her unassuming way, Kim transforms a large auditorium into an intimate gathering of friends. People walk away from the earthy honesty of Kalman’s concerts feeling better than when they came.
