Habaka Kfj, American 4 octave international classic BJ&G Vocalist, born in Nashville, TN and raised in Bloomfield, CT.  Coined The Panther Of Cremona, Italy and famous for her profound contralto voice, strong yet smooth and crystal clear, a voice that calls to mind the sultriness and class of Cassandra and Nancy Wilson, the sassiness of Eartha Kitt, the subtleness of Shirley Horn, and even, when necessary, the big vibrato of Bessie Smith, Etta James and Mahalia Jackson, all wrapped up into one phenomenally talented woman...International Blues, Jazz, Gospel recording artist and she also had the opportunity to be the midday radio host of BlackBerryJazz Radio Station and now producer of her own new TV Web Series "8 Track Mind" meet, Habaka Kay Foster Jackson.  In December 2016 Habaka released her most personal and soulfully inspired album  produced by Habaka entitled "Heritage Blue" under the Husky Tone Records label, featuring amazingly outstanding musicians that includes a stellar performance by James Boogaloo Bolden (former bandleader on trumpet for B.B. King), Eric Demmer on sax (formerly with Gatemouth Brown), and James Lamar Boulet on trumpet.  This phenomenal recording is a tour de force collection of Blues and Jazz standards, and originals rearranged "Habaka Style" to bring these age-old classics of yesterday into the 21st century. On this brilliant new release coming December 2016, Habaka takes her listeners on a journey from Blues to Jazz, and Soul to Funk from pleasure to pain and everywhere in between.  

This is Habaka stepping into her inheritance, coming from such a rich family legacy, and by vowing to continue to extend that legacy, she is considered to be one of the last authentic Blues, Jazz voices in her genre today...and why not? After all, it's her DNA!
 

Each song in this project is gutsy, and heartfelt. It is a kick your shoes off, dim the lights and drop a few cubes in the brown liquor good.”

— Gisele Gee Caver-Key of Gee Entertainment Consultants

HOW CAN WE HELP! 

Me being from the Hartford, CT area, when I saw this advertisement, it immediately brought back memories.  My heart actually sunk, because it really would be sad if The Artist Collective has to close in 2019.  

After all it has been and given in the community.  It's not really the amount that you give, but the key word here is give.  So pass the word and give whatever you can afford, let's not allow this to happen, the children need your help more than ever.
