Alone in her room with nothing but a keyboard, her voice, and a mixture of records, both old and new, Ledé harnessed her time to tap into the rich musical history of her diverse family heritage. A true mix of cultures, African, Swedish, Latino and Native American, Kiana spent years creating her own unique vocal sound into a natural blend of these global, expressive influences.

Of all the pictures you could have used…THIS is the best you could do? This is probably the most whitewashed and just plain unflattering picture that has ever been released of her.

It is the only one that focuses on her facial features, although I agree it is terrible.

Could you please use this one instead?–arrivals.html?&ps=5&x-start=0

There is nothing wrong with this one.

You’re joking, right? Her skin is completely washed out. It’s shameful.

I have to agree with the other posters. I didn’t even recognise the actress and had to refer to other photos to see that I knew who she was. She has got heavy foundation on here; her face is white powder and her body is brown.
