In Loving Memory of KiArra Cartier Fontaine

KiArra was an entertainer who last resided in Cleveland, Ohio, but she got her start in Chicago, Illinois under the name of KiArra Lee when she was dared to enter a Halloween contest at the Baton Show Lounge. She was painted by the wonderful Kim Cleveland, who also helped her pick a melody, Diana Ross. She won the contest and hasn’t stopped since.

She then started performing at several clubs in Chicago and doing talent contests including Continental preliminaries. In March of 1995, she relocated to Akron, Ohio. It was there in July of that year, that she won her first title as Miss Akron Newcomer.

In 2001 she made a move to Toledo, Ohio where she became the show director for Caesar’s Show bar for two and a half years. KiArra made her another move to Columbus, Ohio in April of 2006 before moving back Cleveland. She had performed all over the country and has countless titles to her name.

KiArra has had a few names to note. Besides KiArra Lee, she has also been known as KiArra Fontaine Marlowe …and of course many of her friends just call her ‘Kiki’.

At the end of May and the first part of June of 2006, KiArra started two new weekly shows at Somewhere Else Club in Columbus, Ohio. Every Wednesday she hosts ‘Dicks with a Diva’ with the best in hot male erotica and on every Thursday, she hosts ‘Cocktail Talk with KiArra and Guests’ featuring the best in female impersonation.

Sadly KiArra lost her battle to cancer on May 29th 2013.  Our deepest sympathy goes out to all of Kiki’s friends and family during this difficult time. She was a legend and friend to so many during her life and now she will always live on in our hearts as we remember those wonderful times we were blessed to share with her.
