|Where words fail, music speaks, and that is exactly what Nicollette's music does; it speaks volumes. Nicollette's talents were discovered at age four when her grandmother noticed her granddaughter's loud, rather enthusiastic version of "Happy Birthday" and realized she wasn't just an average child. By age seven, she was competing in local contests successfully performing songs that even adults struggle to master. Nicollette has a deep-rooted musical background. From music and acting camps, beauty pageants, and small local venues, to arena's filled with thousands of fans, Nicollette has been immersed in all facets of the creative musical process.
As an award winning multi-faceted entertainer, her accomplishments in modeling, acting and entertainment, while growing up, only added fuel to her fire. Nicollette's love of big ballads and great voices is what most influences her music tastes and style. Her striking voice and charming down-to-earth personality touches all generations.
"I often find myself singing out loud walking down the street, or breaking into random bursts of song. Music is a part of me. I live to sing - and singing is my life," says Nicollette.
Nicollette has worked with maestro Giacomo Simonelli who produced a six song collection of original compositions on a lush orchestral bed of strings and horns with the Nuova Orchestra Scarlatti from Naples, Italy. Her musical influences include Barbra Streisand, Andrea Bocelli, Mariah Carey and Karen Carpenter. While under the belief that picking a favorite genre is comparable to you 'picking your favorite child', she accommodates a wide variety of musical styling and genres whether it be pop, rock, world or dance music.
Currently, Nicollette is diligently working upon her latest endeavor with Chris Panaghi and Amathus Music. Chris is an accomplished songwriter/producer/remixer having worked with major label artists including MICHAEL JACKSON, GLORIA ESTEFAN, CELINE DION, JESSICA SIMPSON, AQUA, JON SECADA, YOKO ONO and MARC ANTHONY. She is always mindful of future collaborations and new projects.
"Music is forever. It lifts people up when in a saddened state as well as making those already in a good mood feel even better. I want to touch as many lives as humanly possible with my gift of musical talent, and to have it bring people as much happiness listening to it as it brings me to sing it."
Every once in a while, an artist comes along whose talent inspires everyone who encounters them and Nicollette is that inspiration!
