Abbi-K drops new 'Happily Ever After' official video

The island singer and songwriter known as Abbi-K has released her new official video, “Happily Ever After.” The video has been long awaited by fans of the musician since the release of her debut LP record, “HARD (Heaven's Advocates Riding Didactically)” hit online shelves around the world in winter of 2013. Her “HARD” album features such popular Abbi-K singles as the title track, “Hard,” “Let Love and Peace Reign,” “Dance,” and “Happily Ever After.” As with all Abbi-K releases, the official video for “Happily Ever After” has been published on the rapidly growing Stile Records independent music label.

Abbi-K has cited as main artistic influences John Legend, Lauryn Hill and Israel Houghton. Blending these three artists together to approximate the range between them gives a good idea of what Abbi-K's music is like. Her repertoire has strong, catchy elements of pop mixed with brightly colored, upbeat intonations of reggae and Caribbean sounds, while her themes often include uplifting and inspirational topics not unlike those of Israel Houghton.

For longtime fans of Abbi-K, this last bit is unsurprising. Raised on Antigua in the Caribbean's Lesser Antilles archipelago, Abbi-K began her musical career by teaching herself to play keyboard, guitar, and drums at the age of ten. Shortly thereafter, she joined a local Christian singing group in which her many musical talents were polished. She added live performance to her considerable list of skills and became widely known for her naturally raspy, powerful voice.

After moving to New York at the age of 17, Abbi-K became a worship leader at several churches while working with her brother, Kareem Herbert. Together they took up the mantle of church music directors and in 2009 released what would be Abbi-K's first commercially available music album, “Beginnings.”

After becoming involved with non-profit organization New Beginnings, Abbi-K co-wrote and performed her single, “Stand Out” at the group's grand finale concert, which also featured International Grammy Nominee gospel artists, Da’ T.R.U.T.H and the Ambassador, among others. Her performance was aired on major radio stations all across Antigua and remains available for viewing online today.

It was also at church that Stile Records producer Karl Marrett heard Abbi-K’s voice and signed her to the label, leading to the production and global distribution of her popular debut album, “HARD.” The LP features a collection of inspirational melodies spanning a variety of genres and notably includes “Happily Ever After,” for which her new video has been released worldwide.

The official video for “Happily Ever After” by Abbi-K is available everywhere online.
