QUI510 (Pronounced key-five-ten) - is a star on the rise in Oakland, CA. Perhaps you’ve noticed her light shining brightly beyond the hills of the East Bay city she calls home? Perhaps you’ve had the opportunity watch her work a crowd with the moxie of a seasoned entertainment veteran? Perhaps you’ve heard her rich, powerful voice belting out stories of love, pain, joy and tragedy with the passion and emotion of the late Phyllis Hyman or the great Ella Fitzgerald? Make no mistake though; she is hardly the broken-hearted ingénue that you may think she is. Like rolling thunder, she can bring banging beats and ghetto rhapsody that can rival the likes of Missy “Miss-dea-meanor” Elliot, Mary J. Blige or “Da Brat”. Who is she? “Who” indeed, the one and only Qui150!
