I called the Kia customer service today to get some info on the song. According to the Kia rep, several people have already called with the same question. However, according to the kia rep, he didn't know the name of the artist but he was told that the song was recorded specifically for the commercial. :-( He said I could probably get the name of the artist if I e-mailed Kia's marketing department but I probably won't for now--too many other pressing matters for me to worry about. Bummer! I like that song!
