My name is Kathy Praise a born again Christian and a Kenyan citizen by birth. I am happily married to one husband, Eric Nsabumuremyi a Burundian. I was born as a seventh born in a family of eight, four girls and four boys.

I started singing at a tender age of five in the Sunday school at the Anglican Church where my father is a Priest. It was at this age that I got inspired by the South African gospel queen Rebecca Malope after watching her performance on TV. My brother who was then in a choir could come home with tapes of popular musicians like Angela Chibalonza which helped me develop my talent. I loved singing so much such that I could entertain every visitor who came visiting my parents by singing a song while standing on the table. I also could practice singing in front of a mirror to imitate musicians.
I attended Lariak Primary and Gatero Girls School in Nyahururu. I sang in the choir and in high school I became a choir mistress and even after form four I continued singing in my church choir and latter became a worship leader in the same church.
After high school, I asked my parents to enroll me to a music school but they refused because they wanted me to do other careers and so I ended up in the Kenya College of Insurance Nairobi in the year 2009 where I pursued a Diploma in Insurance.
In the year 2011, I got myself a job at a leading Insurance Company as a sales person where my earnings were based on commissions only for every sale made. It was not easy but that was the only job I could get to try save some money for my recording. Ten months down the line I managed to get some money for which I used as a deposit for the recording of my first album Nang’a with ten songs;- Hakuna Kama Wewe, Ningwendete (I love you Lord), Malangoni, Nihurumie, Nitakutukuza, Neema, Mfariji, Rafiki, Nang’a and Mfinyanzi.
I finally got great support from my parents who funded for my video and I was able to release the video for the same Album in January 2013. I have faced challenges as well in the distribution of my music in the market and the media but I believe I have a long way to go and the journey for my music ministry has just started.
I am currently working on a second Album which will hit the market very soon. I love serving God and my inspiration is mostly based on the word of God. I am humbled that God has found it worthy to use me for His glory and I love to worship Him.
