After years of singing background and growing as a writer, Kai relocated to New York in 1997.  Becoming one of the only female staff writers and singers for Character Music at the time, she saw a need for women engineers. Kai studied engineering under Troy Taylor and began recording projects in-house working with well-known artists in the industry. 

After a few years with Character Music, Kai decided to form her own production company writing for independent artists and recording her first EP in 1999. Later that same year, Kai toured singing Gospel Music in Germany and accepted the call to preach, starting bible college the following year. She graduated with honors and relocated back to her hometown working as an Associate Pastor. But music was still in her heart.

In 2011, Kai recorded her first album (a live worship CD), entitled “Speechless” with Levi “Too” King. Kai officially joined the MeTooMusic family as an artist in 2012. At the same time, Kai and her husband Pastor Alex Pineda started a home fellowship in Inglewood, California. Kingdom House of Worship was birthed and has expanded into 4 states and 1 country, with more expansion taking place in 2020.

In 2016, Kai released her sophomore project entitled “Unshakeable.” The album was recorded in 9 days and is the album Kai desired to make. The first single “To You Who Are Faithful” debuted at number 1 on the CMC charts and remained there for 3 weeks. 

With all her accomplishments, there was still one item on her bucket list missing. This year, Kai became an author. Her first book released on October 4th, 2019. Dear Church Vol 1: The Beauty of The Body, is a call to end the divisions within the Christian community. Discussing racial tension, personal preference, and other issues, Kai penned a love letter she hopes stirs others to respond with a desire to unify.
