Kina Cosper (born January 25, 1969) is an American musician, best known for her work with Grammy Award-nominated group Brownstone (after their nomination), and her 2000 solo single "Girl from the Gutter". She is currently working on new music.


Solo career[edit]

Kina was born in Detroit. She found success with her single "Girl from the Gutter", which received strong airplay and peaked at #21 on the Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart. She then released her self-titled debut album on July 18, 2000. Kina peaked at #14 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart.[1]

"Girl from the Gutter" was followed by the single "Me," which peaked at #3 on the same chart.[2] "Have a Cry" was released to radio but never charted.

To date this is Kina's only released album. Kina parted ways with DreamWorks Records shortly after the final single release.

A few years after their release, Kina's songs began popping up in various TV shows. In fall 2005 "Give & Take" and "I Love You" both appeared in an episode of the UPN sitcom Girlfriends. Kina's song "Sincerely" was also featured in the motion picture Beauty Shop.
