Trading Slam Dunks for Smash Hits, 21-Year-Old Michigan-Based Pop Singer Kanisha K's Uplifting New Single 'My Another Day' Is a Top Five Hit on FMQB's AC40, Sharing Chart Space With Pharrell Williams, Daughtry, Paul Rodgers, OneRepublic and American Autho

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/03/14 -- Fast emerging as a fresh and explosive new presence on the pop scene with her infectious breakout hit "My Another Day," Kanisha K (www.kanishakmusic) is living the dream of every small town girl with a powerhouse voice.

A video of her singing at the Tulip Festival in her hometown of Holland, Mich. a few years ago caught the attention of producer Robyn Robins -- and now she's keeping company with Pharrell Williams on the FMQB AC40 Chart. At #5 with a bullet, her new single is creating a joyful buzz four slots above the worldwide sensation "Happy."

The uplifting and empowering track from the singer/songwriter's self-titled album is quickly rising in the chart's Top Ten and also sharing the upper reaches of the list with superstars Passenger, legendary rocker Paul Rodgers, OneRepublic and American Authors. Just below "My Another Day" are the latest hits by Daughtry, One Direction, Imagine Dragons, Katy Perry and Lorde.

"My Another Day," which is also up to #36 on the Mediabase A/C chart, was conceived as a healing post-breakup song but adopted by many fans as an anthem about overcoming addiction. It's the follow-up to her first Top Ten single, "I Found Love (Just In Time For Christmas)."

Kanisha is also keeping some incredible company in the studio. In addition to Robins, longtime keyboardist of Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band, her debut features guitarists Drew Abbott (Bob Seger) and Mark Goldenberg (Jackson Browne); bassist Bob Glaub (Browne, Warren Zevon); saxman Jim Horn, and backup singers Kate Markowitz and Arnold McCuller, renowned for their years performing with legendary singer/songwriter James Taylor.

Also appearing is David Lasley, a veteran backup singer and artist who co-wrote two of the songs on the album: "Lead Me On" and "I Found Love..." He and McCuller recently appeared in the Oscar-winning documentary "20 Feet From Stardom."

A fan of classic rock since her dad took her to see The Who, Aerosmith and Red Hot Chili Peppers when she was a kid, Kanisha also is a huge fan of the Rolling Stones.
