Kimberly Michaels

Kimberly was born in Seoul, South Korea, as Park Sung Hee.  At 6-months old, she was adopted & became Kimberly Falkman, growing up a Minnesotan, in a Swedish-Norwegian Lutheran family.  Her classical training in Piano began at age 4, she learned Music Theory at age 7, and started singing & performing her own Pop & Classical Compositions around age 12.

Her self-written CD Project supports an awareness campaign for adoptees like herself as she partners with such organizations as the LA based Mixed Roots Foundation, and MN based Adoption Groups. Kimberly hopes to touch many people’s musical heartstrings with her universal messages and musical influences such as Sade, Aretha Franklin, India Arie, Chaka Khan & Whitney Houston.

Her love of R&B, Soul, Funk, Jazz, Gospel and Rock has led her down many paths, from working and living in LA to traveling the world. She’s found singing in Nightclubs and doing Corporate Parties, Festivals, Fundraisers & Weddings in Minneapolis/St Paul and around the country. 

Kimberly moved from Minneapolis to West Hollywood. Her Producer was Time Warner’s Wayne Vaughn (Earth, Wind & Fire), married to Wanda Vaughn (The Emotions).  Some world-renown Artists she's worked with: Stanley Clarke, George Duke, DeBarge, Cherelle & Ipso Facto. She was Background Vocalist to Alexander O'Neal, Sheila Raye Charles & Ebony Taye. She's opened for The Time, Lionel Richie, Carol King, Karen White and Frankie Beverly & Maze.

She's back in Minnesota singing with several bands. Along with having American Pride, Norwegian Pride and Minnesota Pride, Kimberly also has Adoptee Pride, Korean Pride and Asian Pride!  Kimberly donates her time to working with Adoptees, performing for their fundraisers & events for the Children’s Home Society, MAKA & The Adopted Korean Connection.
