Interview with Kourtney Heart (The Heat Mag)

On the heels of her back-to-back performances at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, The Heat Magazine caught up with 17-year old R&B sensation, Kourtney Heart – and what a privilege it was to have the opportunity to speak with Kourtney.

Kourtney Heart is not only a beautiful New Orleans native with an amazing voice, but she is also a humble soul with a heart of gold. She speaks with a fervor and genuine love for her fans and fellow artists alike, and she gives props to the man above for her success. Kourtney has been entertaining since the tender age of 3. Kourtney Heart is an artist to watch, as she is on a mission. Charismatic and intelligent, this is one young lady who is poised to be a success in all of her endeavors.

At her recent appearance at the world renowned New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, she performed two days in a row – an honor only a few artists receive. Kourtney is one to always draw a crowd and from what we understand, she certainly did not disappoint. Her fans adore her and it’s not hard to figure out why. Our interview with Kourtney was a breath of fresh air – here’s what she had to say:

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: Who is Kourtney Heart?

KOURTNEY HEART: I’m 17 years old, I just graduated on May 19th, and I’ve been singing since I was 3 years old. I was in a youth organization where teenagers got together and re-wrote popular songs to raise awareness about drugs in our communities, dealing with teens and teen pregnancies. I was in that since I was 11 years old and I’m still involved with the organization. I love to give back to my community. I’ll be at Essence this summer in the Superlounge.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: Tell our readers something else they might not know about Kourtney Heart.

KOURTNEY HEART: I hate spiders. (Laughs) My favorite color is yellow.
