Profile:
Keesha born Lakeesha K. Fuller in 1983, is a gifted singer/songwriter from Yonkers, NY. She has been singing since a child but used her grandmother's (Loretta K. Fuller aka Nana) beauty salon in Yonkers as the first platform to display her talents by entertaining customers with her sing-a-long's to record blasting from the radio. Impressed with her granddaughter's talent Nana hired Harold S. McKoy to develop and manage Keesha career. She soon became a force in local talent shows and won nine races in a short time span. Achievements followed, she was named Amateur of the Year in 1995 and placed second in the Children's Choice Awards.

The accolades brought her to the attention of Lionel Job, who worked with Starpoint, Joe Public, Keith Sweat and others. Job signed Keesha to a production deal, cut some tracks and shopped them around, securing a contract with Mariah Carey's Crave Records, unfortunately the label folded before releasing Keesha's recordings.

Another opportunity came to be in 1999 through RCA Records, who released his debut CD "Keep It Real" Keesha hopes to emulate the success of fellow Yonkers' native Mary J. Blige, the first single "You Got Me Where You Want" received extensive play on New York's WBLS radio station and other markets, Keesha co-wrote three songs on the CD, the title track, "Forever," and "I'm Goin' Crazy," and owns part of the publishing via her company, Five Twenty Six. She enjoys doing young adult things: partying, pizza, and movies, and looks forward to a long prosperous career in music.
