Kimi Galang Villegas
Hi folks! My name is Kimi, and I am a second-year Theater and Performance Studies major at UC Berkeley. I am a mezzo soprano vocalist and play piano, guitar, and ukulele. In 4th Grade, I had some pretty mad recorder skills too! I joined a community theater company when I was 9 and started taking voice lessons when I was 10. Since then, I have performed in over 30 musicals throughout Central California and had my first solo cabaret concert at Papa’s Place in Clovis, CA. During my first year at Berkeley (virtually), I was the Assistant Vocal Director for BareStage Productions’ 35mm: A Musical Exhibition. During the pandemic, I opened KGV Vocal Studio, a safe space where singers of all levels can learn to find their essential voices. Music to me is a universal language of our souls that enables us to connect with other human beings from all realms of life. Regardless of what I am feeling, music has always been something I rely on to process my emotions. Time and again, it has made me feel fulfilled and has given me true purpose. I’m very grateful to share my heart in song with everyone and to be part of this wonderful project.
