K. J. Leeda

Born on Christmas Eve, K.J. Leeda is pleased to join the ranks of other notable writers for Classical Singer magazine. K.J. had a childhood fantasy to be a writer, however such novel considerations were abandoned in order to pursue a degree in vocal performance. As a result, K.J.’s vocabulary is not as sententious as desired; an unfortunate fact to which colleagues can attest. Many thanks are in order to the editor (and Thesaurus.com) for affording K.J. the opportunity to contribute to this publication as a genuine freelance writer. K.J. resides in New York City
