Always with their antennae up, Team Fly has been buzzing about Bridget Kelly before she was a blip on the radar of the rest of the world. Now after the success of her EP and the release of her single “Special Delivery”, people are starting to take notice of the Roc Nation Songstress, who has been flying around performing, recording and even doing dinner with the the first family the Obamas and hip hop’s Royal family the Carters. “Honestly, it was an outer body experience for me. Obviously it’s one thing to be in cahoots with the Carters, and to go to an event to meet the President is the next level,” says Kelly.

Since the release of her solo debut EP The Roxx Boxx Experience in October, musician Divinity Roxx has been traveling throughout Europe and Asia, performing her own work, and acting as Musical Director for K-Pop supergroup 2NE1.
This week, Divinity Roxx is celebrating the release of 2NE1's new Global Tour Live [New Evolution in Seoul] album, which she also contributed to, and the success of yet another leg of the popular girl group's world tour.
This holiday season, Divinity also appears on Grammy-winning jazz musician Victor Wooten's latest project Sword and Stone, and has a new album of her own in the works. To the delight of her loyal fans, Divinity Roxx will be launching her iRoxx Apparel line in 2013, and is performing tours in Europe, the Virgin Islands, and the United States.
"I love connecting with the fans around the world," Divinity says. "The enthusiasm encourages me to keep pushing out my original music, and to give the people what they are craving: more authenticity, more musicianship, and more originality. Art! That's exactly what I intend to keep bringing."
Throughout the past six years, Divinity Roxx has performed around the world as Musical Director and contributing artist for both Beyoncé and 2NE1. With the release of The Roxx Boxx Experience EP in 2012, Divinity was able to display her vast musical talent and lyrical abilities in a new light. Her eclectic mash-up of Rock, Hip Hop, Punk and Soul offers music fans elements of both classic and new-age sounds, with a dynamic performance aspect rivaled by few.
Divinity's full-length album and new visuals will deliver more of her trademark intensity, while drawing from her unique collaborative efforts.
"The opportunity to work for and interact with such talented and diverse artists has been an incredible learning and growing experience," explains Divinity. "The new record will reflect that growth and the international influence. I think it'll be more personal, more bass influenced, and more raw."
