Their videos have garnered over 90 million views and more than 350,000 fans have subscripted to their YouTube channel. They are Cimorelli, a band made up of six sisters who became popular through the popular video sharing site. Introduced to music at the early age of two, their mother’s effort to instruct them musically at such young ages has finally paid off.
Christina, Katherine, Lisa, Amy, Lauren and Danni, whose ages range from 11 to 21, are brilliant vocalists who play a handful of instruments and have been professionally trained in modern dance, musical theater and acting. Their smiles and bubbly personalities seem to appeal to all kinds of audiences.
Millions of fans tune in weekly to watch Cimorelli’s flawless renditions of their favorite contemporary songs. Stars such as Beyonce, Katy Perry and Justin Bieber now have some serious competition when it comes to belting out their own tunes. But it was back in 2007 when the sisters’ cover of ”Party In The USA,” the popular hit by Miley Cyrus, caught the attention of a 13-year-old girl in London.
That particular fan happened to be Sarah Stennett’s daughter, a British manager whose clients include Jessie J. and pop band Sugarbabes. Cimorelli soon struck gold and got signed with Universal Music’s Island Label.
The girls’ family of eleven children moved down to southern California so the musically talented sisters could pursue their dreams and start recording with Grammy Award winning producers and songwriters like The Dream and Liz Rose. The album will contain songs penned by the girls themselves and garnished with their amazing musical harmony.
Last summer, Cimorelli made its debut appearance on the Billboard Chart. Without a record on the market and just based on their virtual fanbase, the group of girls broke into the Billboard Social 50 Charts, a list crammed with A-list performers that now have to share their YouTube hits with the newcomers.
The Cimorelli girls have also posted some introductory videos, where they talk about where they‘re headed to, the chemistry they have when working together, and they have even shared some beauty tips. After each stellar performance, they always include some bloopers, a funny extra that shows how the girls are still grounded regardless of their growing popularity.
They’ve tackled pop, country, hip hop and dance tunes but always keeping it simple and smooth. Cimorelli’s image and sound is appealing to every demographic and gender. They’ve gained a large following in gay communities as well after covering songs by Lady Gaga, Beyonce and Katy Perry.
Recently, fans were encouraged to send a design for the group’s EP artwork. Although their record label has already picked out the album’s final design, the lucky artist who gets the most ‘likes’ on their website will receive an autographed copy and a live chat session with Cimorelli. Besides being excellent musicians, the sisters display their understanding of self-publicity and connecting with their loyal fans.
