Chelsey Nicole was born and raised on Long Island. She began singing at the young age of 7 and hasn't looked back. Singing has always been a way of expressing myself and reaching out to people," says Chelsey. Her Grandpa says from the first time he saw her in the hospital nursery she was the only baby trying to climb to the top of the crib and trying to stand!
Twenty years later Chelsey continues climbing to the top! She describes her style as Pop with a flare of soul. Her voice can be distinguished in a variety of genres. Along with her vocal strength, she also takes pride in her song-writing abilities. She grew up listening to and is influenced by very diverse music. Musical inspirations today include Madonna, Christina Aguilera, The Monkees, Rascal Flatts, Carrie Underwood, and Celine Dion. Transcontinental Records Boy Band (Backstreet Boys, 'Nsync ) creator / impresario Lou Pearlman, introduced Chelsey to Producer/Song writer Aaron Accetta in October 2006. Mr. Accetta has worked with LFO, Aaron Carter, and Brooke Hogan. Chelsey loves Aaron's enthusiasm and passion for the music. Aaron and Chelsey co-wrote her first single "Make You My World" with lyricist Barbara Wollenberg. The catchy beat and easy to relate to lyrics make the song stand out. Aaron and Chelsey finished their second song, "Lies" in October '07.
"Lies" is definitely more Pop/R&B oriented. Especially because well known rapper Termanology is featured; and Sean Kingston influenced Producer, as well as HeavyRoc Music who was also hired to do remixing for that "club-banger" sound. Chelsey has always had a desire to help people. "I want my music to inspire, to touch on people's emotions and feelings. Music is like nothing else in this world. It saves you." Her third song, "Never Forget" was written for Hurricane Katrina victims. "I was so tired of the initial melodramatic memorializing of victims plights in the media, and then after a few months it was as if nothing had happened. To me, and I'm sure many Americans, it's still a big deal. Their region needs more attention than ever before toward rebuilding and revitalization efforts. "Never Forget" is about encouraging people to realize that tragedies like Katrina are not over just because the media stops obsessing. Permanent destruction of peoples' lives occurred and I wanted my song to help them get through the pain."
Along with her budding music career, Chelsey is a full-time student at Ithaca College in New York. She and her family are proud of her ability to successfully manage college life and a musical career. Majoring in scriptwriting, her plan is to learn everything about the entertainment industry, and be as well rounded as possible. Chelsey is also gaining popularity as a result of performing the National Anthem for many sports
teams in the Upstate New York region. Chelsey has what it takes to succeed in this business. She has her head on her shoulders and knows what's most important.
"It's about loving what you do and I truly love singing," she says. Captivating her audience with up-beat performances and a powerful voice, it's safe to say, Chelsey Nicole is on her way to the top!
