SOP's Battle of the Bands featuring Nicollette Varanelli with 'No Gravity'
All too often Pop Stars are made, created, manufactured like a new soft drink or a sneaker line. Nicollette never wanted to be a "Star", her earliest recollection of why she loved performing was to make people happy. "The concept of making money doing what I loved never entered my mind,` she said. Five year old kids don`t think about the "Star" aspect of what God has given them. Nicollette does not write songs, perform in sold out arenas, or give of herself to the less fortunate in attempt to become famous.
Nicollette does it because she has a passion for making a difference in people`s lives. She craves global stardom because she will be able to positively affect people`s lives, whether it`s through her lyrics, giving everything she`s got on stage, or holding a child stricken with cancer from St Jude`s Children`s Hospital in her arms. In her early teens she started to understand that singing is what she wanted to do as a career and with her family`s sacrifices and her God given talent she has made great strides. She has performed in front of thousands of people, works with legendary voice coach Don Lawrence (Christina Aguilera, Lady GaGa) and writes and records her material with top industry professionals. She has just completed 3 songs with Lifeline Entertainment. Nicollette`s chemistry with ultra talented producer Kevin DeClue and Grammy and Emmy winning mixer Joel Soyffer,(high school musical) will be the start of something huge!!
She also has developed a real life image which, while glamorous, is extremely approachable. "I want to be an artist who can serve as a role model for young girls," she said. Recording engineer Gordon Hammond (Taylor Swift, Robert Plant) said, "I have worked with the very famous and artists just starting out, but rarely have I worked with an artist like Nicollette who is so grounded and professional and so ready to go to the next level. She is a Star".
Rock Producer Will Smith agreed. "Nicollette has all the tools to become a major player in the music industry for years to come. Not only is she beautiful but she has the vocal chops and songwriting ability that is all too often missing in today`s Pop Music scene," said Smith.
To say a 19 year old has paid her dues sounds funny, but Nicollette really has. Everything she does from her charity work to writing and recording, she gives 100 percent. 2010 arrives and so does Nicollette, her sound is defined, her writing is outstanding and of course her look is fabulous. As her song says, she is ready to achieve, "Superstar Status".
Chase Von and Lovely Pop/Rock Music Sensation Nicollette Varanelli!
