Kim Burse, a renowned music director who has worked with some of the biggest names in the industry, including Beyoncé and Queen Latifah, has shed light on Jennifer Lopez’s secrets to maintaining her awe-inspiring stage presence. Having collaborated with the talented singer for over a decade, Kim, 55, commends Jennifer, 54, for her unwavering dedication and work ethic that keeps her at the pinnacle of her performance game.
In an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com, Kim emphasized that Jennifer’s astounding physical condition can be attributed to her holistic approach to personal well-being. It is not just about physical fitness, but rather a comprehensive focus on all aspects of her health. Jennifer’s commitment to taking care of every facet of her well-being is what sets her apart. Kim added that Jennifer works tirelessly and leaves no stone unturned in her pursuit of perfection.
Kim’s admiration for Jennifer extends beyond her work ethic, as she strongly believes that the age-defying superstar has no plans of retiring anytime soon. With Jennifer’s relentless passion and commitment to her craft, it seems that her electrifying performances will continue to captivate audiences for years to come.
The music director of Jennifer Lopez has spilled the beans on how the singer manages to maintain her age-defying appearance and enviable physique.
For over a decade, Kim Burse has dedicated her expertise to help the incredibly talented Jennifer elevate her show-stopping performances. Throughout their enduring partnership, they have consistently mesmerized audiences with their incredible synergy.
Kim collaborated extensively with Jennifer on her mesmerizing Halftime Show at Super Bowl LIV, an extraordinary event held in February 2020 in the vibrant city of Miami, Florida.
Kim was asked if she believed that the famous singer, Jennifer Lopez, would ever retire. In response, Kim stated that she couldn’t say for certain, but she doesn’t see it happening anytime soon. She firmly stated, “Absolutely not. She’s not retiring.”
Kim mentioned how viewers of J.Lo’s Netflix documentary, Halftime, witnessed the singer’s dedication and hard work leading up to her performance at the Super Bowl in February 2020. Kim revealed that they would even schedule meetings in the early hours to accommodate her busy schedule.
Reflecting on their preparation for the Super Bowl, Kim expressed the immense effort they put into a performance that only lasted about six minutes at most. They worked tirelessly from start to finish, ensuring that every detail was perfect. Jennifer was involved in the rehearsals every step of the way.
Kim recollected a moment in the documentary where she and Jennifer were discussing songs and timing at around 1:30 in the morning. Jennifer had been filming a movie and continued working on the music afterward without stopping.
Due to sharing the Super Bowl Halftime slot with Shakira, Jennifer had even less time to perform. The typical duration of the show is 12 to 14 minutes, but they had to condense eight songs, including hits like “Jenny from the Block” and “Get Right.” Jennifer even brought her teenage daughter, Emme, on stage for a special duet of “Born in the USA.”
Kim elaborated on the challenge they faced in fitting so much into such a short performance. They aimed to capture the best moments within the limited time frame, and Kim felt they succeeded. She praised Jennifer’s exceptional job in giving each song enough representation, comparing it to the popular TikTok trend of showcasing short snippets.
Kim, a 55-year-old individual, recently shared her belief that the renowned artist, On The Floor hitmaker, does not have any plans of retiring in the near future.
Kim disclosed that she and Jennifer would occasionally convene at 1.30am to plan for the Super Bowl because the renowned artist simply had an unstoppable drive.

‘It feels like we were on the cusp of the pandemic, already in the process of creating short songs that would be perfect for sharing on social media.’ Prior to the pandemic, Kim confessed that she experienced nerves similar to the artists themselves when it came to live performances. She specifically recalled watching the Super Bowl Halftime show from the audio truck, where she switched with Shakira’s musical director to focus on JLo’s performance. Her main responsibility was ensuring that everything was properly balanced and that JLo’s vocals were adequately amplified. Reflecting on her experiences, Kim emphasized the vulnerability she witnessed in celebrities like JLo before their live performances, as well as the striking transformation they undergo once they put on their costumes, makeup, and hairstyle. This transformation, for Kim, is what solidifies their star power and proves why they have earned the title of diva. She views the term “diva” as a positive reinforcement, signifying the need for respect, recognition, and understanding of their hard work and talent. Kim has had the privilege of working with divas in the past, and she regards the experience as nothing short of amazing.
In 2020, Jennifer had the opportunity to gracefully share her stage at the Super Bowl Halftime show with the talented Colombian vocalist, Shakira.
In addition to her collaborations with Beyonce and the well-admired female ensemble Destiny’s Child, Kim has also put her talents to good use.
Kim had the opportunity to showcase her talents as the band leader for the television special, CMT’s Smashing Glass: A Celebration of the Groundbreaking Women of Music. This special event honored legendary singers Patti LaBelle and Tanya Tucker, and Kim couldn’t have been more thrilled to be a part of it.
She expressed her admiration for the show’s name, Smashing Glass, and what it represents for women in the music industry. As a black female musical director, Kim felt honored to be involved in such a groundbreaking project. From start to finish, the entire experience was empowering and uplifting, not just for Kim but also for the honorees and all the other talented females involved.
Kim hopes that the TV special, which features incredible performances from artists like Amber Riley and Clint Black, will serve as a reminder to women everywhere that they are deserving of success. She wants it to inspire them to never give up on their dreams and to keep pushing forward.
Ultimately, Kim’s wish is for people to recognize the unifying power of music. She hopes that any woman watching the show will feel a sense of worthiness and realize that they too have the potential to make their dreams come true. CMT SMASHING GLASS: A Celebration of the Groundbreaking Women of Music will premiere exclusively on CMT on Wednesday, November 15th at 9p/8c.
