BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — She serves as a Boston Police Officer, but in her free time is a singer.
Duxbury native Kim Tavares joined the Boston Police in 2001. She began performing the National Anthem and "God Bless America," while in her police uniform, at Boston Red Sox, New England Patriots and Boston Celtics games.
From the 1990s to the early 2000s, Tavares sang in Top 40 cover bands across New England.
Tavares and her colleague Stephen McNulty first gained a lot of viral attention with their "cop-pool karaoke."
Tavares has recently hit several UK Soul Music Charts. According to her website, 'Kim Tavar Music,' her song "Isaiah" spent several week in the Top 10, reaching #5. Two of her songs have been "the top 10 most selected songs by 60+ UK DJs on the DJ choices playlist on UK rotation for several weeks and counting."
She said she hopes to build off her momentum from Europe and perform more as COVID-19 regulations loosen.
