After taking hit reality TV show ‘The Voice’ by storm, Kenza Blanka continues to dominate in the limelight, currently working on a new album titled “I am what I am” which has already received praise on both ‘BBC Radio’ and ‘BBC Introducing.’
Blanka originally appeared on the UK’s version of ‘The Voice’ in 2019 as part of the ‘Blind Auditions’ in week 6. Since her incredible performance, which
wowed judges Olly Murs and will.i.am as she performed in 3 languages whilst donning clothing from her own brand, Blanka is now using her extraordinary talents to bring awareness to mental health and wellbeing.
Trained as a mental health nurse, Blanka’s music is naturally focused on positivity around mental health, self-love, self-expression, identity, and race, all whilst incorporating Arabic, French, and English languages and unique influences from Arabic/African sounds.
But Blanka offers much more than just her famously high-pitched vocals and her style, as she recently took part in a TED Talk and is producing a 5 part short film series, both focused on the growing issues surrounding mental health awareness, self-acceptance, identity, and race.
It’s hardly surprising this 34-year-old has been catapulted into the limelight. From a musical family and having studied at the National Youth Music Theatre and Sylvia Young Theatre School, Kenza has used her influences from the likes of Labyrinth, Professor Green, Ghetts and Wiley, to create a truly unique, new genre of music.
Kenza Blanka is on a mission to spread her unique music, clothing and messages surrounding positive mental health, self-acceptance and self-love to an audience far and wide – a refreshing change in the increasingly generic world of fame.
