(NEW YORK, NY) MARCH 24, 2011 – Following the success of the GRAMMY-nominated single, “Tired,” Kelly Price has another bonafide hit on her hands. The follow up single, “Not My Daddy,” from her much anticipated album, KELLY, broke a Top 10 spot at radio this week. With help from Mint Condition’s Stokley Williams, the emotional ballad has consistently gained airplay, was the number one most added song in 14 new markets on Monday, and debuted at #20 on iTunes. The solid success of both “Tired” and “Not My Daddy” is only a glimpse of what fans can expect from the forthcoming album, KELLY, on May 3rd.
Vibe magazine praised the album for”celebrating love, drying tears and kicking lusty addiction.”
As Kelly Price readies the album’s release, she has been performing in various cities reminding us why we fell in love with her rich voice and soul-stirring lyrics. The R&B powerhouse recently hit the stage for an impromptu, heart-felt performance of “Tired” at the season two premiere of ATL Live and,this past weekend, performed the National Anthem at the New Orleans Hornets vs. Boston Celtics game in New Orleans.
In addition to promoting the album, Kelly Price continues to support causes that she is personally connected to. She recently participated in The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure that was held this month in Los Angeles. Kelly Price has been a long time supporter of the organization and the fight against breast cancer after both her mother and mother-in-law were diagnosed with the illness within two months of each other. She’s also an active supporter of the March of Dimes, an organization whose efforts raise awareness on the prevention of premature births and birth defects.
It was recently announced that Kelly Price has been added to the stellar line up of performers at the 2011 Essence Music Festival, which takes place this July 1st-3rd in New Orleans.

About Kelly Price
Since making her mark in 1998 with the double-platinum debut, Soul of a Woman, Kelly Price has been a consistent presence on the R&B scene. Her first single, “Friend of Mine,” was a record-breaking single that made history as the first to garner the #1 spot on the singles chart without an accompanying video clip-a rare feat during the era when music videos were the driving force of popular culture. She returned to center stage three years later with the platinum-plus seller, Mirror, Mirror, led by her remake of the R&B classic, “As We Lay,” and followed up with the gold-selling holiday collection, One Family: A Christmas Album in 2001. Three years after releasing her fourth album, Priceless (April 2003), she returned to her roots for This Is Whom I Am, a live gospel album recorded at her church home in Long Island. The album included the uplifting single, “Healing,” which not only reached the top of the gospel charts, but was also credited and awarded at the 2007 ASCAP Awards as one of the top five songs played across both R&B and Gospel genres during 2006.
