Kim English is an African American electronica, soul, Gospel, and house music singer born in Chicago, Illinois, US.

Through her career, English has experienced a great deal of success on the American Hot Dance Music/Club Play, Hot Dance Singles Sales, Hot Dance Airplay charts and the UK Singles chart, beginning in the mid-nineties and continuing into the 21st century. Though her first chart entry on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play came in 1995 and was a moderate hit ("I Know a Place," #32), her debut single was actually "Nitelife" in 1994, produced and written by Ten City. Between 1999 and 2002 she scored six hits in a row that hit the top two, five of those went to number one: "Unspeakable Joy", "Missing You", "Bumpin' and Jumpin'", "Everyday" and "Treat Me Right". All of these hit singles (excluding "I Know a Place") are featured on her debut album Higher Things, released in late 1998 on the New York City based record label, Nervous Records NYC. Both "Unspeakable Joy" and "Everyday" became her most successful radio hits to date. The album also features a cover version of Anita Baker's song, "Been So Long."

English began as a Gospel singer and many of her most popular songs contain references to God, faith and belief in yourself.
