Singer Kelis is headed to Singapore to perform at Avalon on May 12! The famed singer of Milkshake, Acapella and Bossy will be performing a show “never seen before in Singapore”.

Avalon is pleased to announce that American singer-songwriter Kelis, with chart-topping hits like Milkshake, Acapella, Trick Me and Bossy, will be bringing her infectious tunes to Singapore for the first time on May 12 and will perform live in the club.
Harlem-bred vocalist Kelis left her parents’ home at 16, but continued her education at the famed Fiorello H LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts. 2 years later with the support of producers The Neptunes, she landed herself a recording deal. In mid-1999, Kelis was singing alongside rap troublemaker Ol’ Dirty Bastard on his cut Got Your Money, and her signature Technicolour-spiralled Afro & colourful style sparked critics’ interests. Kelis captured feminist desires on her debut album Kaleidoscope, released in December 1999. Two years later she released Wanderland exclusively in Europe, Asia and Latin America. 2003′s Tasty followed and yielded the Top Ten hit Milkshake, a Neptunes production. In 2006, her fourth album Kelis Was here was released through Jive, led by the duly assertive Bossy. Kelis has worked with some of the biggest names in the industry – having recorded with will.i.am, Bjork, Outkast, Raphael Sadaaq, Enrique Iglesias and Basement Jaxx to name a few.
The flamboyant singer is now busy working on her next album with producers such as David Guetta, Burnz, DJ Ammo, Boys Noize, Diplo/Switch, Benny Benassi & Free School to name a few.
