Stephanie K for featured Pistons/Palace National Anthem Singer
Sign this petition if you think Stephanie K should be the featured singer for the Detroit Pistons/ Palace Sports and Entertainment. Other Michigan venues have had signature artists such as Karen Newman for the Detroit Red Wings.
Stephanie K's Hollywood looks and astounding vocal talent make a very powerful combination. She writes all of her own songs, lyrics and melodies. Her songs have received awards from countless competitions and organizations, including Billboard, Music Nation, The Great American Song Contest, The Los Angeles Music Awards, The Hollywood Music Awards, The International Singer/Songwriter Association and the International Unisong Contest. In addition, her songs have been placed in award winning television shows (including the CW's hit sitcom "The Game"). From her Spanish and European ancestry to her Detroit roots, Stephanie‘s unique persona blends youth, raw emotion and sophistication. In the fall of 2007, Stephanie teamed with famed 4-time Grammy Award winning producer Michael J. Powell (who helped launched the careers of and produced numerous hits for superstars Anita Baker, Aaliyah, R Kelly, etc.) and the duo began an unprecedented collaboration. Their brand of music combines pop, soul, funk and rock elements that features “THE DETROIT KATZ” ; a band comprised of world-renowned musicians and vocalists. Edgy lyrics, Stephanie’s powerful and sometimes sexy vocals, raging guitars, live horns, soulful background vocals, funky drums, drive the tracks and create the backbone of her unique style. Stephanie's Album "Good Intentions" is set to be released by Bungalo/Universal in 2010. Stephanie has been a fearless and accomplished performer from the beginning. She has been regularly selected (among the likes of Anita Baker and Aretha Franklin) to sing the national anthem at the Palace of Auburn Hills, the premiere arena in the Detroit Area, for the NBA's World Champion Detroit Pistons in front of sell-out crowds of over 22, 000 people. She has also performed her original material live at halftime at the Palace. She also sings for the Harlem Globetrotters, the Detroit Fury, the WNBA's Detroit Shock, Motocross Tournaments, Toughman Contests and Budweiser Fight Nights. She has performed her original songs live on television (including a feature on FOX 2 News St. Louis), countless national festivals (alongside the likes of Uncle Kracker and numerous American Idol Finalists) and in such famous venues as the House of Blues. Stephanie also worked as a DJ, Promotions Director, and News Director at a community radio station, WBFH 88.1 FM, for two years. She received several awards from both the Michigan Association of Broadcasters (MAB) and the Michigan Association of Educational Broadcasters (MAEB), including the MAB award for second best DJ in the entire state. In 2002, she was the State Champion in the Michigan Interscholastic Forensic Association (MIFA) State Finals Tournament in the category of Storytelling. Stephanie is also a regular stand-in as The Detroit Pistons In-Arena Hostess on television during Pistons Broadcasts.
