After spending much of the last year putting the finishing touches on her now world-renowned "In Your Arms" music video (made with more than a quarter-million Jelly Belly Jelly Beans) and touring in Europe, Asia and Australia, Los Angeles-based singer songwriter returns home for her most ambitious North American tour yet. Following in the success of 2011's World In Front Of Me Tours, which saw more than 2 dozen sellouts around the world, Kina's In Your Arms World Tour has already sold out a dozen rooms in Europe before venturing into two legs of mostly sold out dates in Southeast Asia and Australia.   The tour's US leg begins at San Diego's Porter's Pub on April 9th and wraps around the continent, making stops at Washington DC's 9:30 Club and New York City's Irving Plaza before ending with shows at San Francisco's Fillmore and Los Angeles' John Anson Ford Amphitheater.

Kina recently garnered international attention when her aforementioned music video for "In Your Arms" off debut album Stairwells, became a viral sensation.   Made over the course of 22-months with 288,000 jelly beans, "In Your Arms" earned Kina appearances on Ellen and Jimmy Kimmel Live, features in Time Magazine, Entertainment Weekly, on The Today Show and Good Morning America and an iTunes Free Video Of The Week among countless others.  The video was also added across all MTV platforms, VH1 (where Kina was January's Posted Artist of the Month) and Nickelodeon.  Additionally, the track reached #1 on iTunes' Singer-Songwriter Chart and Kina was on the cover of Pollstar this past December.

In addition to promoting Stairwells and "In Your Arms," Kina recently launched Run Team Kina, an initiative that both informs, promotes and encourages a more active, healthier lifestyle and also raises money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, who has recently nominated her a finalist for Woman Of The Year.  Through the Run Team Kina site - www.runteamkina.com - fans can donate to LLS or enlist themselves as fundraisers and even follow alongside Kina's marathon training with realtime updates and messages.
