Kedash Cornelius - Lead Vocals
Kedash started singing at the age of 7 and her family quickly realized she had incredible talent. Her father, Carter Cornileous, gained musical fame in his own right with "The Cornileous Brothers and Sister Rose" who were known for the billboard toppers "Treat Her Like a Lady" and " Too Late to Turn Back Now". At 12, her father was bringing her along to his recording sessions where she would record background vocals. As other studios began calling on young Kedash, it was obvious she found her calling. During those tender years, Kedash continued her vocal studies and found inspiration in artists such as Mary J. Blige, Erykah Badu, SWV and Whitney Houston. Kedash has enjoyed tremendous success with her independent albums and singles. Her smash hit "Wrong Chick" continues to gain popularity and airplay in the Southeast. She is the lead singer in several South Florida bands including Party Express and Doc's Treasure Band. Kedash joined Kaleidoscope in 2016 and provided the final piece to Kaleidoscope's energy and vocal power. Her lush tone and meticulous technique are the perfect fit for covering the vocal demands of Kaleidoscope's Motown repertoire. www.kscopeband.com | (954) 951-0832 | Photography by www.salsciarrinophotography.com
Scott Fink - Lead Vocals & Guitar
A Fort Lauderdale native and veteran of the South Florida music scene, Scott began forming his early musical roots as a solo act in Downtown Fort Lauderdale's acoustic hotspots aka "the coconuts circuit."

For 5 years beginning in 1998, Scott moved his attention to the recording studio producing original and cover tunes, mastering the art of 24-bit digital recording, sampling and sound engineering, while at the same time focusing his practice studies on the electric guitar. Scott brings his extensive choral and theatrical vocal training and years of performing in live rock bands to the Motown table. The brainchild of the Kaleidoscope project, Scott has an avid interest in the history and styles of the Motown phenomenon.

Joey has performed with Tony Orlando's younger brother David along with a host of accomplished musicians from New York to South Florida.
