Bio

Keldric ?Kel? Bonton was born and raised in Alexandria, Louisiana. Like many contemporary black artists, his love of music started at an early age and was nurtured in the church. By age five, he was singing in the church choir, where his musical talent was recognized. Kel continued to develop his musical talent throughout his formative years.
In high school, music became his passion. He realized he could combine his passion and musical talent into a career. He played the trumpet in the marching band, and found that he had a talent for arranging and composing. Some of his early musical influences include Earth, Wind and Fire, Frankie Beverly and Maze, and Luther Vandross. The success of these musical giants greatly influenced Kel and prompted him to select music as a career.

Kel used his high school years to develop his sound, often recording in a friend’s home. Kel combined his love of Hip Hop with contemporary R & B to produce a sound that appeals to both young and old. During high school, Kel was given the nickname ?Killa.? As a result of the nickname, Kel’s stage name, Killa Kel, was born. The name represented different aspects of Kel’s personality with Killa representing the dark, mysterious side and Kel the good, socially acceptable side.

By age eighteen, Kel became Killa Kel—the recording artist and a career were born. Killa Kel released his first mix tape entitled College Preparation Volume 1: Freshman Year under his own label, Flyy Guy Entertainment. Flyy Guy actually stands for Freely Living Your Youth because God Understands You. He then went on to release four more projects, including Real Music 101: Winter Session, College Preparation Volume 2: Sophomore Year, No More Mr. Nice Guy, and, his most recent project, College Preparation Volume 3: Junior Year, which is scheduled to release on September 8, 2011.

Kel has maintained his recording career while being a full-time college student. His hometown newspaper and other local and state media outlets have featured him in their publications. In addition, many radio stations throughout the state have played his music

Kel’s music is constantly evolving. Despite admiring such artists as Tupac and Kanye West, Kel’s music is free from profanity. His strong religious faith recently led him to change his stage name from Killa Kel to Kel. He feels God has given him a special musical talent. He intends to use that talent to make a difference in his community and, perhaps, the world.

To name a few of Kel's many accomplishments, he was named Louisiana College Fest Artist of the Month - June 2012 and his video "2nd Wind" was recently made the Top Video Charts at #6 on indiecharts.
