Kesha (aka Ke$ha)
Kesha is an American singer-songwriter whose early musical influences were shaped by spending time with her mother who was a songwriter herself. She has experimented with lots of different musical styles including country, pop rock and electronic.
After finishing at music school she appeared as a back-up vocalist performing on songs by Britney Spears and Paris Hilton. But her big break came from a cameo on rapper Flo Rida‘s 2009 No. 1 hit “Right Round.”
Her first solo single, “Tik Tok,” soon became one of the most downloaded songs in America of the year, and then reached the top of the Billboard pop charts in January 2010.
She has received several awards and nominations, including her win for MTV Europe Music Award for Best New Act in 2010.
