Bio: If anything further is needed feel free to let me know:
K-Viv the Headliner debut single, Nan Nother Love Song.
Capricorn born January 8 and raised in Moss Point, MS, Kendrick Vivians now calls Starkville home.
He has been singing since his 3rd grade teacher pointed him out as being that voice that’s sticking out. He’s sang with and formed many groups since the age of 8. Some included a gospel ensemble called A.Y.G. (Anointed Youth in God), his latest R&B group Xklusiv, and his first neighborhood R&B group “The Monsters.”
He graduated from Mississippi State in 2003 and left music alone. He started his career as Ken Cornelius the playwright and actor and “Mississippi Phat” stand-up comedian and entertainer extraordinaire. For steady money he became a licensed barber. After traveling with other plays and writing, producing, and directing Prelude to the Good Life, he decided to leave entertainment alone. After winning the karaoke contest for 3 years straight at the Mississippi Coaches Clinic, Coach Vivians determined it was time to get back on stage. NOW!!!! He says he feels he did not make it in the other music scenes because he was chasing the wrong dream. So K-Viv got back into the studio and got back to the music that gave him his voice….Southern Soul/Blues! Out of all the music that he’s penned, these songs seems to write themselves. His first Single Nan Nother Love Song came to me from past relationships. Everybody has been there and can relate. That’s what the Headliner is all about, making you feel good and doing music you can relate to. Hold on WORLD K-Viv the Headliner is on the move and ain’t no stopping him.
