Young author, Kaleya Ervin has written her first book, “Now I See: Wonder Child’s Gifts of Vision and Music”. She beat strenuous and almost impossible odds by rising to prove all things are possible if one can believe!
At the tender age of three, Kaleya was diagnosed as almost completely blind because of the eye disease, Salzmann’s Nodular Degeneration (SND). She thanks God for genius medical technology that created implants along with surgery that renewed her sight. “Now I see!” is her heartfelt cry!
Kaleya was rescued from dark circumstances surrounding foster care by her Auntie Nikki and Uncle Tony. Through adoption they provided her a safe haven and nurturing environment.
At age six, this young prodigy began playing the piano immediately after hearing her Uncle Tony play. After showing Kaleya certain chords, she played them back for him perfectly, hence, the beginning of her music career journey.
Kaleya began playing gospel and classical music as well as singing and composing her own songs. She’s traveled across the United States performing with many well-known artists like Richard Smallwood, Dr. Margaret Douroux, J.J. Hairston, Hezekiah Walker, BSlade and Pastor John P. Kee.
Kaleya is well loved on social media by millions who enjoy her music and are blessed by her overcoming story of hope.
Her love and passion for music coupled with her soulful, uplifting message is sure to one day change the world! She is forever thankful to God for what He has accomplished through her thus far and is excited for a brilliant future.
