Kaeli Jensen, singer/songwriter/composer, has spent the past few years refining her skills while performing locally at several different venues and showcases. She is now being requested to do shows out of state as well. This summer she has been requested to perform at the Cherry Hill Resort in Kaysville, Utah. She was asked to do a performance at Brigham Young Historical Park in Salt Lake City for their Summer Concert Series of 2007. Many vie for this much-coveted spot with it's central, downtown location and it's very exclusive practices for hiring performers. At an autumn showcase in 2006, Kaeli was chosen out of several artists to do a performance and interview for local television station CW30 and their program, "Spotlight Utah." Time and time again, Kaeli's talent rises above other artists giving her opportunities to perform. In July of 2006, the South Salt Lake Events Manager Tim Williams chose Kaeli Jensen above the multitude of other artists desiring to perform at their fourth of July celebration, Freedom Festival, to perform a forty-five minute set with her original music, including the emotional and heartfelt song, American to Me, an original song written by Kaeli as a reaction to the 9/11 tragedy. Her song shows the maturity and depth of passion Kaeli possesses and it expresses how deeply it affected her life while passing by most other young people her age. Ms. Jensen has been performing since she was a young girl and has participated in performances with such prestigious artists as Kurt Bestor, Peter Breinholt, Sam Cardon, and Jessie Clark Funk. Even now at her current age, still considered young by industry standards, Kaeli could easily be considered a seasoned performer, traveling to such faraway places as Japan as a featured soloist. Kaeli captured the attention of the Salt Lake City Olympic Committee, along with Kenny Ortega, who included her in the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2002 Olympics. With eleven years piano instruction and six years of songwriting, Kaeli has produced her first self-titled demo CD filled with melodies straight from her heart. It is available for retail sale and a big hit at her concerts. Her abilities were recognized in 2003 when she was part of the team to win the grand prize in the Yoko Ono "Dream Power" original music competition. Kaeli Jensen is a big surprise in a small package. She emanates a genuine light that can only come from within. Lovely and poised, she is destined to be the artist and voice that stands out with her message of joy and love in this world filled with angst-driven super stars. Kaeli Jensen's vocals, passion, words, and music, come straight from her heart to yours.
