ABOUT KEEWA


Keewa was born on the South Side of Chicago to musically and artistically inclined parents. They nurtured her creativity early, sending her to art, music, and dance lessons from the age of 3. She excelled academically, but inherited a passion for the arts. At a young age, she decided that performing on the stage would be her life's journey.


Keewa attended Whitney Young Magnet High School (alma mater of Michelle Obama), and while studying there, she performed in the choir and dance company. During her third year, she was accepted into a summer musical theatre intensive at New York University. She completed the program and decided that musical theatre was the best career to utilize all of her talents. She was one of only 20 students accepted into the University of Michigan's Musical Theatre BFA program, one of the top three conservatories of its kind in the country.

After completing her studies at Michigan, Keewa was considered a bonafide 'triple-threat', and she was ready to compete with the thousands of starry-eyed performers in New York City. In fact, within weeks of her arrival, she was cast in a new project for Disney Theatricals (The Lion King, Mary Poppins, Tarzan on Broadway). She was the youngest in the cast, and she left New York (temporarily) to tour the country with Disney's On The Record, a new musical aiming for Broadway. The show never made it to New York, but Keewa's career kept escalating. She went on to snag parts in other new shows like Sammy at The Old Globe (Lola Falana) and Monty Python's Spamalot at Wynn Las Vegas (Lady of the Lake understudy).


Keewa continues to work in theatre, television and film, and she also enjoys performing as a concert and cabaret artist. Her versatility as a singer makes her a crowd favorite, and her concert repertoire includes everything from Gershwin to Motown, Patsy Cline to Beyonce.  Keewa infuses her superior vocal stylings with a comedic narrative that unites audiences both young and old. Her concert work has allowed her the opportunity to travel the world, and she has had the pleasure of performing for legends like Quincy Jones, Julie Andrews, Robin Williams, and Steve Martin. Keewa will record her first solo album this year.
