From day one Khiry Wade has been labeled a star! Born July 18th, 1994 in Seattle, Washington, Khiry was destined to become a talented individual. Even as a toddler, Khiry’s attributes were recognized early.

Son of “The Diva” Nikki Wade, this young man comes from a long line of visual and performance artists, his maternal grandmother is an accomplished painter and sculptor and former vocalist; his grandfather is a percussionist former drummer of the hit 70’s group Tower of Power and vocalist; his father a former choreographer and rap artist, and his mother an accomplished singer, actress, writer, poet, and former ballet/modern and jazz dancer. Growing up in a music filled environment, Khiry developed a love for old-school 70’s R&B and rock music, with some of his favorite music artists being: Eric Roberson, Lupe Fiasco, Earth, Wind & Fire, Michael Jackson, Outkast, and Chad Kroeger/Josey Scott; with acting influences being Michael J. Fox, and Atlanta’s own Freddie Hendricks. A member of the Youth Ensemble of Atlanta, Khiry is no stranger to the stage. He made his theatrical debut in October 2004, performing in the holiday musical “Urban Holiday Soup”; in June 2004, he debuted as a solo vocalist at Club Vinyl, opening up for Hip-Hop/Rock band “Crop Circle”; in early 2008 he opened up for Disney’s “High School Musical on Ice”, at the Philips Arena; and a two time participant in Kenny Leon’s August Wilson Competition . Since then, this young man has been honing his skills as a classical vocalist, hip-hop artist, spoken word artist and music producer. Going by his new moniker “Khiry Tha’ Young Prod’G”, he is currently working on his debut CD & will be shooting his first music video the weekend of July 17th to mark his 16th birthday. This young man has been hailed by the creators and president of the BEAT KANG music software company and was recently interviewed by Tricksta of the international UK internet magazine “RAGO” (www.ragomagazine.com/interviews/khiry-from-atlanta-usa.html ) who stated “This young rapper from ATL is making moves….” Among other accolades he has been described as “mature beyond his years and talented beyond belief”, as he aspires to be a multi-talented artist and mega super producer, this young prodigy is definitely all that & then some, in KHIRY WADE!
