Kendall K. Vertes, born on December 9, 2002 to Erno and Jill Vertes, is a well-known dancer from Lifetime's reality television series, Dance Moms. Prior to her television debut during season 2 of the series, Kendall danced at Roger's School of Dance and Studio 19 Dance Complex in Pennsylvania, and had won several national titles during her time there. She began taking classes at Reign Dance Productions in 2011 and auditioned for the Abby Lee Dance Company's junior elite competition team in late 2011, making the team and eventually becoming a permanent cast member of the show. For a short period of time during season 2, Kendall left the Abby Lee Dance Company and began competing with Candy Apples Dance Center, but this was just for the show to create drama. Kendall and her mother have repeatedly had to miss tapings and competitions for the show because of family obligations, such as when Kendall's older sister Ryleigh graduated from high school in season 4 and when she and her team did a competition of their own.

In 2015, Kendall started her singing career, releasing her first single and music video under the stage name Kendall K, which is her legal first and middle name. "Wear 'Em Out," her first single, topped the iTunes Pop Music Video charts within the first twenty-four hours of its release. The video currently has over 14 million views on Kendall's VEVO channel. Surprisingly, this is the only video on this channel. Kendall has uploaded all of her other music videos to her personal YouTube channel.

In December of the same year, Kendall released a music video cover of the popular Christmas song "Winter Wonderland." The video was released exclusively on YouTube, and the song and video are not available for purchase on iTunes. It was posted on Kendall's official Instagram account that she was recording a single called "Heart Smile" and would be releasing it sometime in 2015, but as of 2017, it has still not been released.

In 2016, Kendall and her Dance Moms co-stars did a second collaboration with Todrick Hall, which would be featured in an ALDC LA television commercial. That November, she released her second single "Out Loud." It was rumored that Abby Lee Miller released the single without Kendall's knowledge, seeing as there was no prior promotion of the single. Then in February of 2017, Kendall released her third single "Where Would I Be Without You." Two versions of the music video were released shortly thereafter.

Abby Lee Miller confirmed that Kendall had an album in production on a reunion episode of the show, but it is unknown when the album will be released.

Music CareerEdit

In 2014, Kendall worked on two music videos. The first was for Mack Z's "It's a Girl Party," and the second was for Todrick Hall and the Dance Moms Cast's "Freaks Like Me." Kendall had singing credits in "Freaks Like Me," as did the other girls from the show.

In early 2015, Kendall recorded two original songs under Abby Lee Miller's management. Her first single, "Wear 'Em Out" was released on April 21, 2015. The music video was released on the same day. The video stars Kendall, with her sister Ryleigh Vertes and friends Addison Moffett and Kalani Hilliker as backup dancers. Maddie Ziegler choreographed the video. At Christmas time, Kendall released a cover version of "Winter Wonderland" on her YouTube channel, but it was not released as a single or promoted on any social media platforms.

In 2016, Kendall and her co-stars worked on another collaboration with Todrick Hall. Also that year, she released her second single "Out Loud."

In 2017, she released her third single and its official music video, entitled "Where Would I Be Without You."
