Biography

Kelly Sweet (born 1988 or 1989 - was said to be 18 in 2007 on her official website) is a pop singer with classical and jazz styles currently living in Montclair, New Jersey.

Kelly Sweet was born into a musical household in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, one in which her jazz pianist father and her artist mother fostered a love and respect for music that began when she was an infant. She was raised on the jazz standards that were part of her father's repertoire, and Sweet learned musical notes soon after she could walk with her father's help. Her first public performance followed when she was 4 years old at the Cape Cod Conservatory.

At the age of 7, following the divorce of her parents, Sweet and her mother moved to Kanab, Utah. Sweet began working regularly with a vocal coach and honed her skills as a performer by singing at state fairs, county festivals, and community theaters. Sweet and her mother eventually went on the road for two years, traveling back and forth between Kanab, Las Vegas and Los Angeles in search of performance opportunities. At 14, the singer opened for Kenny Loggins in Las Vegas. After hearing Sweet's demo CD, the Los Angeles Lakers NBA team booked Sweet to sing the national anthem on three occasions.

Sweet eventually met Grammy-nominated producer, arranger and songwriter Mark Portmann (Josh Groban, Celine Dion) in July of 2004, and the two began working together shortly thereafter.

In October, 2006, Sweet released an EP from which the songs "We Are One" and "Ready For Love" have been used on episodes of two daytime dramas, the NBC TV series Passions and the ABC TV series One Life to Live, respectively. "We Are One" was also featured on the NBC series Las Vegas in the spring of 2007.

Sweet opened for Paul Simon on tour in July and October, 2006, and also appeared at the New York Mets-St. Louis Cardinals NLCS baseball playoff game on October 17, 2006, where she sang an a cappella rendition of "God Bless America."

Recently, remixes for Kelly's song "We Are One" were done by Dave Aude, Radioactive Sandwich, Matt Piso, and Electronathon.

Her cover of the Aerosmith classic Dream on is now being played on adult contemporary format radio stations such as Hartford's WRCH.
