Kamica King

   About:     

    An award winning and versatile singer/songwriter, Kamica King is known for her uplifting music and soulful sound spanning Soul, Jazz and Christian/Gospel music at times with a twist of Hip-Hop or Caribbean flare. A songwriter, performer and speaker, Kamica has a knack for connecting to the heart of her audience, weaving story and song together to empower and inspire. Her song “Live, Love, Dream”, is featured in the documentary "Signs of Humanity", and her work as a vocalist has brought her to perform nationwide at the U.S. Open, Carnegie Hall, The Potter's House, Southern Methodist University, and the George Bush Presidential Library opening ceremonies.

    As an entrepreneur, Kamica is the founder of King Creative Arts Expressions, a music therapy and performing arts company. She launched and currently runs the music therapy program at The Bridge homeless recovery center in Dallas, TX. Providing a warm and inviting atmosphere, participants say that her music therapy sessions help them deal with stress, connect to one another and feel accepted as they are. As a Board Certified Music Therapist, Kamica also provides music therapy services at UT Southwestern’s Simmons Cancer Center and The Notre Dame School.

    Kamica has been featured as a speaker, presenter and clinician around the nation, covering topics such as self-care, songwriting, music therapy, and program development in the creative arts. She has spoken and performed in front of audiences from 20-12,000 and her highly sought after interactive presentations have spanned from “Music Therapy with the Military Population” for the Marine Corps to “Music Therapy Techniques…” for the University of Southern California Master’s of Social Work Program, and "Self-Care and Music Therapy in Oncology" for nurses at UT Southwestern. Kamica is a regular presenter at the Southwestern Regional of the American Music Therapy Association (SWAMTA) conferences and has also presented at the American Music Therapy Association’s  (AMTA) annual conference.

    While much of her music therapy work is centered around high-needs communities, King has taken a global approach in her artistry to spread much needed messages of love, peace and healing.

     A strong believer in servant leadership and community service, Kamica trains undergraduate music therapy students as a practicum supervisor; serves with her church’s children’s/special needs ministries, recently completed an active term on the Board of Directors for SMU's Young Leaders In Education, and serves as the Southwestern Region Representative on the AMTA’s Diversity Committee. 

    A first generation American and daughter of Trinidadian parents, King is no stranger to hard work and determination. She is a Magna Cum Laude graduate of Western Connecticut State University and an alum of SMU's Music Therapy Equivalency Program. Kamica is currently working on her Masters in Music/Music Therapy at Texas Woman's University.
