Kyshona Brings Healing Power of Song to the Weis Center, Artist is a Licensed Music Therapist

The Weis Center for the Performing Arts will welcome roots, rock, rhythm and blues, and folk singer Kyshona on Thursday, Feb. 8 at 7:30 p.m. at the Weis Center.

There will be a pre-performance talk from 6:45-7:15 p.m. in the Weis Center Atrium.

The performance is sponsored, in part, by Karl Voss and Chanin Wendling and family.

Kyshona is an artist ignited by untold stories, and the capacity of those stories to thread connection in every community. With the background of a licensed music therapist, the curiosity of a writer, the resolve of an activist and the voice of a singer, Kyshona is unrelenting in her pursuit for the healing power of song.

She is both a sought-after collaborative vocalist working with artists like Margo Price whom she accompanied on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and Adia Victoria who features Kyshona, Margo Price and Jason Isbell on her single “You Was Born to Die,” as well as being a burgeoning performer in her own right whose release, Listen, was voted Best Protest Album of 2020 by Nashville Scene.

Kyshona’s nonprofit organization, Your Song, offers songwriting programs for youth empowerment programs, detention, re-entry, recovery, mental health and veterans centers and organizations.
