Kelly Price Joins EBONY’s ‘Women Up’ Live, Talks New Music, Childhood Trauma and More

Kelly Price

If you missed Thursday night’s debut of EBONY’s ‘Women Up’ live event, you missed a powerful, unfiltered, intimate interview with singer extraordinaire Kelly Price, whose new gospel album, ‘Grace,’ drops on April 2. Good Friday.

Price opened up to EBONY Media Group CEO Michele Ghee about the tapestry of loss, grief, joy, anguish and unshakeable faith that gave rise to this new project. The multiple Grammy nominee—who makes crossing the boundaries between secular and non-secular music seem effortless—has just signed with Motown Gospel, which releases ‘Grace’ in concert with SANG GIRL! Inc., Price’s own company.

In the hour-long “fireside chat,” the singer distills her life lessons into compelling guideposts that convey how she navigated a wide range of personal, yet relatable challenges. “People often don’t realize how important ‘grace’ is until they’re the ones who need it,” Price says in the rich and layered conversation.

Check out the complete Kelly Price sit-down on the EBONY YouTube channel. In the meantime, here are some highlights to watch for… call them ‘grace notes’:
