Karma Mikel, a powerful, young artist has emerged in the Valley and is creating a stir with her mu sic, raw talent and God-given gifts. An Atlanta native with family roots in south Phoenix, Karma Mikel is a multitalented singer, songwriter, and rapper. She’s a graduate of Saguaro High School in Scottsdale, Ariz., and The Conservatory of Recording Arts and Sciences in Gilbert, Ariz.
After graduation, Karma Mikel returned to Atlanta and completed an internship with Twelve Music Group and Tay’Lord Management Agency. Finding the Atlanta mar
ket oversaturated with talented musicians and artist, she returned to Phoenix to pursue her music career. Karma Mikel founded “StarKnnect,” a creative networking organization, recorded her own music and enrolled in Mesa Community College’s vocal performance pro gram where she received her classical training and sang the college’s con cert choir.
Karma Mikel began performing her original music and covers at the Poetic Soul event in central Phoenix. Performing weekly allowed Karma to perfect her craft, generate a following and create networking opportunities. She performed her ground-breaking song, “I Don’t’ Think You Like Me” and received Poetic Soul’s longest standing ovation in its five-year history. To gain momentum, she partnered with Degenerate Genius, a marketing platform, to develop a vi sion and game plan for her music career. She quickly released the music video for “I Don’t Think You Like Me” and continued to record and publish her original music on Apple Music, Spotify and SoundCloud.
