Versatile, Fearless, Witty, Successful, Driven…there’s no shortage of superlatives that have been used to describe Keshia Chanté, and with good reason since the multi-hyphenate star has been at the top of her game for more than 20 years racking up chart-topping hits, co-hosting #1 shows in Canada and the U.S., captivating audiences with dynamic stage and screen performances, lending her time and talent to charitable causes, repping world-class brands, running her own company – K.Chante Inc., and most recently, adding selfcare product designer to her litany of talents.
After bursting onto the music scene at 13, Keshia Chanté earned the distinction of being the youngest Juno award-winner and a seven-time nominee thanks to a string of radio and club bangers including “Unpredictable,” “Bad Boy,” “Does He Love Me,” “Been Gone,” “2U,” “Fallen” featuring Drake, and “Table Dancer,” which reached #1 on Japan’s Billboard Digital Chart. Keshia Chanté’s well-documented legacy was further cemented when Drake cited her as “a real legend” while she performed at his OVO weekend All Canadian North Stars show, highlighting her as one of the iconic names in Canadian Hip Hop and R&B history, who helped paved the way for him and others to follow. In addition, a slew of TV accolades like co-hosting BET’s #1 show 106 & Park with Bow Wow, serving as an international music judge on CBS’s The World’s Best hosted by James Corden, and making guest appearances on Chopped Canada, Top Chef Canada, Blood & Treasure, Jann, and Private Eyes to name a few.
Currently, Keshia Chante is residing in Los Angeles, conducting coveted interviews with Hollywood’s elite for Entertainment Tonight Canada, a privilege she doesn’t take for granted since it not only keeps her connected to home, but also gives her the opportunity to utilize her comedic and insightful skills to entertain audiences with some of the biggest stars on the planet including former First Lady Michelle Obama, Robert De Niro, Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez, Denzel Washington, Mariah Carey, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, and Jennifer Aniston to name a few. Chanté is a two-time Canadian Screen Award winner for Best TV Host. Recently Chante became an International Voter for the prestigious 81st Golden Globe Awards.
