Chatting with Karyn White


By// Carolyn Desalu

Led by the success of her sultry sister’s empowerment anthem “Superwoman” (1988), Karyn White wove her way into music biz royalty — only to disappear a few years later. Divorce, death and disillusionment with the en- tertainment industry caused the singer to fall out of love with music. But she’s humming a new tune. Now, more than two decades after her departure from the limelight, the R&B diva has returned with an independent album called Carpe Diem.

The November 26 issue of JET magazine, on newsstands Monday, Nov. 19, 2012.

JET: What have you been doing in the last 20 years?

KARYN WHITE: I was raising my daughter, Ashley. When she went to college last year, I had no excuse to not sing again. Aside from that, I was also building my business, KLW, by flipping homes and doing interior design.
