Born in Rock Hill, SC, to humble beginnings, *Charm* is an abbreviation of Charissa Mobley, the R&B singer’s birth name. As early as 4 years old *Charm* could be seen in her performance get-up of sunglasses and a microphone, dancing and singing to her own tune. First singing in church and then for family reunions by the age10, *Charm* grew to adore music and realized the wonders of her voice. Naturally a good writer, *Charm* wrote for the local newspaper as a teen and began writing music lyrics in high school.
By the time *Charm* was 18 years old, it was clear that music was her passion and she began working on her first solo album. Although this album never made it to shelves, *Charm* continued to sing in karaoke locales and open mics. She worked with other producers around the District of Columbia before realizing that her dream lied within.
*Charm* connected with two young producers of industry credibility at an entertainment event in the nation’s capitol, and the duo crafted music to *Charm*s style which led to the grass roots work for “Check For Me”, and the foundation of *Charm*s solo debut began. By working odd jobs, *Charm* scraped month by month over 2 years to pay for an album that would set her apart from many other female artists in the music business- she wrote the lyrics for each song, executive produced each track, and paid for the entire project independently.
Often hearing the words “star” and “amazing” after performances locally and nationally, *Charm* is headed for international success.
*Charm* is an ASCAP artist and desires for listeners to hear the realness in her lyrics and in her voice. Inspired by naysayers and doubters, *Charm* wrote the title song “Check’n For Me” with hopes of getting across her personality and her belief in turning negative energy into positive. When asked where she will be in 5 years, *Charm* quickly responds, “[just] Check For Me.” Not cocky but confident, *Charm* draws audiences with her electric performances and her resonating voice- no wonder the coined alias fits her perfectly.
Sure to make her mark, *Charm* is a singer/songwriter destined for success.
