Barbara segues smoothly into appearances and engagements with legends Rufus Reid, Kirk Whalum, Akira Tana, Onaje Alan Gumbs, with pop legend, Patti Labelle and gospel icon, Kirk Franklin. King is a devout Christian who remains in touch with her spiritual roots. She did a guest solo on the Christian Cultural Center’s 2005 holiday CD, A Jazzy Christmas. King also sang in Vienna, Austria, at the Advent Sing, performed in Worlds Sing Gospel concert in Tuscany, Italy, and sang with pianist Dino Kartsonakis at Carnegie Hall. Her debut release, Perfect Timing on CCCMG Records, marks the first outing of Barbara King. Barbara presents splendid interpretations of some standards and four life-affirming, original tracks: Miracles, Overtaken, Perfect Timing and Your Smile. The CD includes such well-known tunes as Ribbon in the Sky, Forever Young, I Say A Little Prayer, and Let It Be. King is joined by several jazz luminaries--Cecil Bridgewater, Arturo O’Farrill, Carl Allen, Rodney Jones and Dave Valentin. Perfect Timing is pure musical elegance and well worth a listen. Barbara has captivated audiences in Greece, Japan, Dubai, Eastern Europe, Jamaica and New York City.

Barbara King appears as part of The Uptown Tea Series, sponsored in part by the generous support of the Dwyer Cultural Center, International Communications Association and Harlem World Magazine. The Uptown Tea Series is A Loft Arts Productions, in association with Arts & Education Continuum.
