Who is Lakken “Selah J” Johnikin, and from where did she come? Those are just two of the many questions being asked about a beautiful new talent that is rapidly on her rise to stardom. Selah J, as her fans know her, is said to have one of the most powerful voices since the late great Mrs. Whitney Houston. When asked about the comparison she humbly replied, “Whitney Houston is my idol”. Although their vocal strengths are definitely comparable, in all fairness to Selah J, Selah J has blended a soulful energy with a tone unmatched and has created a sound that is without a doubt unprecedented. So is she of the R&B, pop, or the soul genre? While some might argue that she is of all of the above, which is a compliment within itself, others would say Selah J is simply an artist who’s style cannot be placed within any conventional categories. Her new single “I’ll be there” is definitely catching the ears of many listeners who are drawn in by her style’s unfamiliarity. To say that Lakken “Selah J”Johnikin was born to be a star would be merelyunderstating the obvious. She was possibly born to be the biggest star of our time!
