Kinga Heming

Jazz

Kinga Heming was born in Poland, lived for a short while with her family in Amsterdam, and then moved to Canada where she ultimately now resides in Kelowna, BC. Her home was filled with music from a young age with a jazz performer father and music loving mother. She was constantly exposed to vocal pop and jazz records by The Platters, Tony Bennett, Frank Sinatra and the like.

In her teens, she discovered and began learning the repertoires of many great jazz vocalists, including Diana Krall, Dianne Reeves, Sarah Vaughan, Natalie Cole, and especially Ella Fitzgerald.

Kinga studied voice and theory at Humber College, where she also served as instructor for voice, piano, theory, ear training and improvisation to child and adult students.

Her latest release, "Forever in my Heart", comes straight from her heart in a collection of songs that she refers to as a "book written about her personal life".

Kinga is also featured in the Kelowna-based musical review entitle Songs of the Southern Belles. Her years of live jazz gigs around town have made her a cornerstone of the local jazz scene.
