Khary Laurent

After abandoning a promising ten-year opera career, Bass-Barotone Khary Laurent took to producing his own material and creating a brand-new genre on the forefront of hip-hop and opera music under the pseudonym "K. F. Jacques". From tours in exotic destinations around the world to the Rosie O'Donnel show (Oprah Winfrey Network), Mr. Laurent has moved from a chauffeur day job to captivating audiences worldwide with his exceptional fusion of rap, opera, and pop; dubbed "OperaTronic". He's performed multiple times as a headliner at House of Blues Chicago, and has performed the national anthem solo at United Center, U. S. Cellular Field, and Soldier Field. Born and raised in Chicago, this new movement has clearly paved his way to legendary status!
