Elijah King

Full Biography

Straight out of Miami, Elijah King uses music as his avenue to the world. He uses his life experiences to tell a tale of a talented artist and the beautiful struggle that comes with it. Over the past couple of years, Elijah has performed numerous times around the country with musical greats such as: Akon, Baby Bash, Pitbull, DJ Laz, Fat Joe, Mario, T-Pain, Jay Sean, Jerimih and many others. He headlined LA renowned KSFM’s Cinco De Mayo 2009 concert; has performed at Miami’s annual flagship event, Calle Ocho, two years in a row and has also performed at Miami’s Mainstream & Hip Hop home - Power 96’s Beach House alongside artists such as: Flo Rida, Trina, T-Pain and Sean Kingston.


With strong influences in gospel music; Elijah started singing at the early age of 5 and by the time he was 7 he was sought out by Disney for the Mickey Mouse Club. However, Elijah’s mother was not so sure about exposing her son to the cutthroat industry of child stardom, so she made a decision not to let him be a part of it. That did not keep Elijah from singing. He never stopped dreaming and persevered to develop his voice on his own. When Elijah was 15, his family moved to Texas where he continued to perfect and master his talent throughout his high school years. This led him to receive a music scholarship to the prestigious University of Incarnate Word. However, this achievement was not enough for the hungry young talent. He continued to pursue his education in music and attended the International Academy of Design & Technology. He then decided to commit himself full force to his career, putting school on hold to pursue his lifelong dream. His dedication and tenacity proved rewarding and in 2007, Elijah signed his first record deal with VIP Music and moved to Miami to start recording his debut album. In the middle of 2008, his first hit “Cry No More” hit the airwaves all over the US making it to Billboard’s Top 50 and topping out at 35.


The current single "Nunca te vuelvo a ver" which is in English titled "Never see you again" featuring Gyptian was leaked in English in Oct. 2010 even though the record was always meant to be a Spanish record and was never pushed to radio, on its own it caught some spark. After the leak with out any radio push whatsoever the English version went into rotation at Power 96 (Miami), WBTT (Ft Myers), Y100 (Miami) as well as WJMH in Greensboro, N.C., the English version has received over 400 spins with over 4.5 million in audience.


The current version that is the official version "Nunca te vuelvo a ver" has pending airplay commitments in N.Y., L.A., Miami and Puerto Rico on the SBS broadcast. SBS is one of the top Hispanic controlled media and entertainment companies in the US, including the #1 Spanish language radio station in the America, WSKQ - FM in New York City as well as 4 of the top 7 station in the Hurban (Hispanic - Urban) format.

A new song from Elijah featuring T Pain and Young Cash entitled "Hand clap" was leaked on April 18, 2011, the response has been phenomenal, garnering close to 57,000 views and growing at a rate of over 100% a day with no video. Including youtube honors in European countries, Radio stations in Miami have already added this record to there "mix show "list.


Currently Elijah is in the studio working on his next Spanish language release which will feature Fuego. He is also working with the Olga Tanon Production team as well as working on production and writing with Latin icon Willy Chirino.
