Born in Brooklyn NY, Keisha is the daughter of legendary soul singer, Millie Jackson. At age 17, while pursuing a career in Entertainment Law, she began singing background for her mother. It was during this time Keisha decided to change her career path. After relocating to Atlanta, GA she was signed to Sony Music, where she recorded 2 self-titled albums. Keisha dabbled in Musical Theater for 4 years, but realized that she preferred the “musical” to the theatrical side of entertainment and chose to focus on studio performance. She soon became one of the most sought-after session vocalists in Atlanta and worked with La Reid and Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds (LaFace Records) singing background on recordings with the likes of Toni Braxton, Whitney Houston, Bobby Brown, Aretha Franklin and later, Joss Stone’s Introducing Joss Stone album. She is featured on Sleepy Brown’s (Dungeon Family) underground masterpiece, “The Vinyl Room”, Da Brat’s “Get Somebody”, Raphael Saadiq’s “Live at the House Of Blues”, Funk Diva, Joi’s “Co-Stars” and a sultry soulful duet with Anthony David, entitled “Lady”.
