What do you do when you only
want one thing out of life - careerwise? You'd search until you found it! That's exactly what Kelly Lang did;
she's been spending quality time honing her craft as a singer/performer and more recently as a songwriter. On the
verge of releasing her debut album, country music fans are about to find out: "It's About Time."
|Kelly at age 3, already full of
|confidence and poise
At 3 years of age, Kelly Lang declared to
her mother that she wanted to become a superstar! It was her very own dream and she took it very seriously! She wrote
her first song when she was 6 and filmed her first video at 15 (for her single "Lady, Lady)." Not long after her video was
released, she made appearances on popular Nashville-based shows: Ralph Emery Morning Show, Crook and Chase, The
Statler Brothers Show, Church Street Station, Fantasy, Pickin' In The Paradise. When she was
17, she was told that she was too young to audition for Ed McMahon's Star Search in the Adult Female Singers Category
(at the time, they didn't have any junior categories). She returned to audition at 18 years old and made it to the final round
three different times on the popular television show. Later, she reunited with Ralph Emery, making guest appearances on his
Nashville Now show. She has shared the stage with country greats George Jones, T. G. Sheppard, Lorrie Morgan, Ronnie
Milsap, Brenda Lee, and many others.
In her late teens, Kelly married and had two daughters Payton and Kennedy. Though
she put music aside to raise her daughters, she never forgot about wanting to record her music. Enduring a divorce set her
back some more, but one day, everything fell into place. Kelly says: "I had just had two dear friends pray over me that God
would give me direction - and within a few days, I was signing with the label! For me, it was a definite 'divine intervention'
- like God was telling me I traveled this far to find I needed to rely totally on Him all along. For the first time, everything
seems to be on the same page, at the right time!"
Perhaps it's no surprise that Kelly would eventually be signed to Destiny
Row Records. So, after years of preparation, hard work, and prayers, Kelly released her album, aptly titled It's About
Time - it's about time the rest of the world found out about Kelly Lang!!

One of Kelly's newest fans is none
other than the very famous model, beauty expert, fashion designer, and successful entrepreneur Cindy Crawford!! In 2004 Crawford,
along with renowned French cosmetic surgeon Jean Louis Sebagh, developed a revolutionary "age-maintenance" skin care line
called Meaningful Beauty. While surfing the Internet, Kelly discovered this product and decided to give it a try. Within a
few weeks after she began using the product, people began commenting on her skin and inquiring about what she used to keep
it in such great condition. She received so many comments that she decided to sit down and write a letter to the company to
let them know how happy she was with their skin care line.
The name of Crawford's product was inspired by something she
dearly value's; a meaningful life. Apparently, the person who received Kelly's letter, visited her website. After seeing her
photos, learning more about Kelly and discovering that she is not only a single mom and cancer survivor but also a successful
artist, singer and songwriter ... One thing led to another - lo and behold, a camera crew from Crawford's company came to
Nashville to shoot a commercial featuring none other than our own meaningful beauty, Kelly Lang!! The commercial is scheduled
to air within the next six months, so be watching for it!
