Every day until the end of April, we’ll highlight some of our favorite kpop girl group vocalists on the way to #1.

…Goeun of Purple Kiss.
It was love at first listen for us when it comes to Purple Kiss. Their first debut song gave us a lot to love, but what impressed us most about the group was their vocals, and Goeun in particular stands out among the lineup of strong singers.
When I listen to her solo songs, I’m struck by the jazzy quality of her voice. She was born to sing tunes that require a little sass with the unique texture of her voice.
Even though she has just debuted, Goeun already has a keen sense of when to add embellishments to her vocals to make the performance more engaging. You can hear it in the growl she adds to the beginning of her cover of BAD by Christopher, and in the ad lib she shows off in Cee-Lo Green‘s Forget You.
We predict that in a few year’s time, Purple Kiss will be among the biggest girl groups, and Goeun will be known as one of the fourth generation of kpop’s most beloved divas. And for that, she’s found her way onto our list of kpop favorites. Check out this short list of covers performed by Goeun and come back tomorrow to meet #18.
