N'Kenge made her Broadway debut in "Sondheim on Sondheim" and her West End debut in "The Genius of Ray Charles" along with her New York City Opera debut in "The Mother of Us All". N'Kenge had the great honor to give a solo performance at the Commander-in-Chief's Inaugural Ball hosted by President Obama.
In addition, N'Kenge was seen singing "God Bless America" for the LA Dodgers Opening Game. Both events were televised through the US and Canada.N'Kenge, born and raised in the Bronx and later moved to Brooklyn as a teenager, was always a child of music. At the tender age of three, her mother enrolled her daughter for dance and piano classes as a means of channeling her daughter's unusual energy. This decision paid off with recitals and a piano scholarship by age six. However, when N'Kenge discovered that she possessed a singing voice this startlingly mature youngster began devoting herself to its full time development.
N'Kenge continued her studies at the H.S. School of Performing Arts, Manhattan School of Music and The Juilliard School winning kudos for her voice and beauty when she won the title as Miss Manhattan in the Miss America Pageant.
