In 2001, the world witnessed the official breakout of songstress Kim Sozzi upon the release of her hit single, “Feelin’ Me.” Since then, she has been a dominant force in the music industry, achieving an impressive 10 top number five Billboard hits and releasing three number one songs consecutively on the Billboard’s dance charts in 2009: “Feel Your Love,” – the number one most played dance song of the year, over Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face” – “Kiss Me Back” and “Secret Love”.
Following these remarkable achievements as a recording artist, Kim discovered a whole new element of her passion. Asked by her father Rick Anthony to sing a number at a wedding, she said yes, joined the band for the night…. and never left! To her complete surprise, she fell in love with the whole experience – the beauty, the joy, the monumental energy and the direct, deeply personal connection to the couple and guests.
Kim has since joined her father in leading and managing Creations, bringing her rare brand of vocal talent, vibrant energy, warmth and professionalism to every type of event all over the world, while directing and cultivating the unparalleled musical work of the Creations band family. Aptly named the “Dance-floor diva” by The New York Times, Kim feels closely invested in every event she does, treating each and every celebration as though it were her very own. For her, performing at milestone events from weddings to Bar or Bat Mitzvahs to corporate or non-profit is not just a singular privilege – but a responsibility to make the evening a unique success, one she happily embraces over and over again.
Kim’s enthusiasm for music began at an early age. Propelled by watching her father’s band rehearse and perform, she credits him with her diligence and unstoppable work ethic. In 1997, she was discovered by Tommy Motolla and signed by Columbia Records, making a name for herself with her very first single, “Letting Go,” which was featured on “Dawson’s Creek,” along with the show’s multi-platinum soundtrack that sold more than two million copies worldwide. Kim quickly became a hot commodity and was snatched up to perform with the Lilith Fair Tour in 1998. Shortly after, her single, “Till I Cry You Out Of Me” was released, and was featured on the “Teaching Mrs. Tingle” soundtrack.
While living in Germany and developing an international audience, Kim recorded “Show Me the Way” with famed singer Jose Carreras of the Three Tenors. Recording under the name Kim Styles in Europe, she rounded out her contract with her record label by releasing the single, “Every 1’s A Winner,” which was followed up with a sizzling award-nominated music video that was in consistent rotation on MTV.
Kim and Creations have had the privilege of working with such artists as Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Pitbull, The Pussycat Dolls, Flo-Rida, John Mayer, Fantasia, the Backstreet Boys, Kevin Rudolf, Cascada and many more. Her stage credits include the off-Broadway hit, “My Big Gay Italian Wedding”, and she also co-produced and starred in “The Groove Factory” – an official selection of the New York Musical Theater Festival.
Today, Kim has happily dedicated herself to creating unforgettable events, sharing her talents as a performer, manager, and mentor with thousands of grateful clients and celebrants around the globe. When not at work, she enjoys her home in Long Island with her husband and baby son.
