On Monday, Oct. 12, singer-songwriter and a former contestant on “The Voice,” Angie Keilhauer, commonly known by her stage name “Angie K” kicked off Bakersfield College’s homecoming week with a virtual coffeehouse event that started at 6 P.M.
The El Salvador born and Georgia raised country artist opened up with a cover of the new Justin Bieber song with Chance The Rapper titled “Holy.” She also performed various unreleased songs, such as “Love is in Laredo,” which references her El Salvador roots, and “Keep on Coming in Waves,” which according to Keilhauer, has drawn interest from country star Luke Bryan.
“I would like to perform the song with Luke Bryan, but he might be a tiny bit more famous than I am,” the singer joked during the concert.
The virtual event was not without technical issues, as Keilhauer’s internet went out in the middle of the event, causing a delay for a few minutes.
Keilhauer came back and then performed her own singles, such as “Real Talk,” and she expressed her thoughts on being able to perform something that she wrote herself as an artist.
“There is just something so liberating about creating something that you can enjoy your time with,” she said.
Not only did Angie K perform her own songs, but she also covered songs by other artists. She even claimed that she knew over two thousand songs that she could cover at any given time. She performed various hits such as “Across the Universe” by The Beatles, “Kiss Me” by Ed Sheeran, “Rolling in the Deep” by Adele, and more.
Keilhauer also talked about her charity work with Feeding Nashville, a charity that is helping feed the people who need it most in the Nashville area due to COVID-19 and the tornado that hit the city earlier this year.
Along with the virtual coffeehouse event, another homecoming event was planned for Bakersfield College on Monday: the “Decorate Your Space” competition. Unfortunately, nobody entered the contest and no winner was announced.
