Kina Kasuya Grannis (born August 4, 1985) is an Japanese American singer-songwriter, guitarist and YouTuber. Grannis was the winner of the 2008 Doritos Crash the Super Bowl contest, earning a recording contract with Interscope Records and having her music video played during the commercials of Super Bowl XLII on February 3, 2008.
On November 14, 2007, she created her YouTube account and began posting videos of her songs online. Her YouTube videos have received more than 99 million views and have propelled her to become one of YouTube’s most popular personalities. Grannis planned to work with Interscope Records to produce a new album, but in January 2009, she announced that she was leaving the label to be an independent artist.
Grannis joined Patreon, a site created by Jack Conte to provide artists a living via direct support, in April 2014. In April 2017, Grannis created a record label entirely composed of her patrons and began creating an album entirely funded by her supporters. On advice of said supporters, the record label was named KGRecords. She has been releasing cover songs and original content since then.
