There’s a fun and fab new girl band to follow! If you love Carly Rae Jepsen and the pop duo Megan and Liz, you would go gaga over Cimorelli! Made up of six sisters, Christina, Katherine, Lisa, Amy, Lauren, and Dani, Cimorelli recently released their “Made In America” EP and will perform at the ‘Tribute To Champions of Hope’ Gala in September.
Celebrity Teen Scoop recently chatted with Cimorelli about how they’re preparing for their upcoming performance at the Gala, what inspired them to form as a band, and how the roles are divided in the band. Cimorelli also revealed that two legendary boy bands are their greatest musical inspirations!
CTS: You are all going to perform at the Tribute To Champions of Hope Gala on September 21. What is the event all about? What inspired you to join the Care About Rare initiative?
Cimorelli: “We are so happy to take part in the 2013 ‘Tribute To Champions of Hope’ Gala! It’s a fundraiser for The Global Genes Project, which is one of the leading rare and genetic disease patient advocacy organizations in the world. We are very passionate about this cause, because rare and genetic diseases affect 1 in 10 Americans, yet it’s extremely difficult for them to find the help and support they need. Sometimes, it is even difficult for these people to find doctors familiar with their disease and get a correct diagnosis! We want to do all that we can to help those affected by rare and genetic diseases and help raise awareness and funds!”
CTS: How are you all preparing for the performance?
Cimorelli: “We are practicing as much as we can. We’re on tour across the country right now and we’ve been practicing on the bus every chance we get.”
CTS: What inspired you all to form as band?
Cimorelli: “Our parents are both avid music lovers and our mom is a pianist, so we grew up with music playing a huge role in our lives. We all loved singing together from early on, so I, Christina, made the decision to start a band with my sisters and see how far we could take it!”
CTS: What do each of you do in the band? How do you divide up the roles?
Cimorelli: “I, Christina, am the leader who’s in charge of a lot of the band. Lisa does a lot of video editing and helps me arrange the songs, and the rest of the girls have different responsibilities depending on what’s happening in our lives at the time.”
CTS: How does being sisters affect how you all work together? Do you all get along well?
Cimorelli: “I’d say it has a positive affect. We keep the lines of communication fully open, because we’re family and we’re not scared to say things to each other. I think that’s a very positive thing for a band.”
CTS: You just released your “Made in America” EP. What are the songs like?
Cimorelli: “They are fun pop songs that we wrote about our lives growing up in Northern California and just being ourselves. We really express ourselves in our music. This EP is full of songs that you’re going to want to blast in your car and sing at the top of your lungs!”
CTS: Who are all your greatest musical inspirations?
CTS: What do you all like to do when you are not in the studio or preparing for a performance?
Cimorelli: “We all just like to relax and do fun activities like read, work out, listen to music, play instruments, write, etc.”
CTS: What are you all doing this summer? Any upcoming tours?
Cimorelli: “We are currently on a promo tour around the US until August 5th, and then we have a lot of shows in August coming up!”
CTS: What would you like to say to all the Cimorelli fans out there?
Cimorelli: ”We love you all SO MUCH and are so appreciative of your support! We can’t wait to meet ALL of you! You’re the best!”
