“In an era of thin voices and wispy emotions, Kristi King’s mature
sound and approach to a song is refreshing, indeed. We believe her no
matter what she sings, a song by Aretha Franklin or one by Doris Day.
She reminds us of the songs we love and the singers who sang them. But,
like a true pro, she interprets, never imitates."
