She first became interested in performing as a five year old in the chorus at Brooklyn’s St. Luke’s Church.
In school from JR High to high school, Kasha became the lead singer of the glee club, which she attributes as being the start of her goal to become a musician. Kasha has said in interviews that the death of her mother when Kasha was 14 has also motivated her to follow her dreams of becoming a musician. And remembering her mother as always forever in her heart.
Kasha’s mom, the backbone of her family passed away at the tender age of 14. Along with being the main support system for the family, Kasha’s mom was also the inspiration behind Kasha’s love for music. In these difficult times, her older sister, Tamiko stepped up and took care of Kasha and her brother. Her sister ensured that both, Kasha and her brother stayed on the right path and did not wander away and guided them till the time that they were adults. However, Kasha had fallen into a deep sense of depression upon her mother’s death and it took quite some time for her to re-emerge out of it. Her mother was everything to her, guide, friend, and mentor into the challenging world of music.
However, owing to Kasha’s resolve and dedication towards music, this tragedy only strengthened her. She immediately started her long journey to achieving her goals; taking every step with her mother in her heart and soul.
At 16, Kasha knew she had to educate herself about the music industry and that’s exactly what she did. She went to the library and read up on trademarks, copyrights and all of the behind-the-scenes aspects of the music business.
