Cimorelli is a singing group that became well-known through YouTube. They are currently signed to Universal Music's Island label. The band consists of six sisters: Christina, Katherine, Lisa, Amy, Lauren, and Dani Cimorelli. Their debut album is expected to be released in 2013.
Cimorelli covers popular songs and posts them on YouTube. Cimorelli is the band's name because it's the girls' last name. They also have five brothers, who sometimes appear in the girls' videos. The original three members of the group were Christina, Katherine and Lisa.
Their covers and original songs feature their signature harmonies and are more often then not acappella. The solos are split up between the six of them on every song. Harmony parts are assigned according to vocal range and lyrical age-appropriateness. Because the girls do not swear and have many younger fans, they sometimes change the lyrics of a song they are covering to make it more age-appropriate.
In total, the sisters have filmed 49 covers and 17 original songs.
2007In 2007, the five oldest girls began Cimorelli as a group, and recorded covers of popular songs and uploaded them to YouTube. In 2010, the family moved to Southern California so the girls could pursue their music career.
In 2008, the girls released their first EP called "Hello There". Each song was written by Christina and Lauren with the vocal harmonies arranged by Lisa. It has never been officially released.
In 2009, the band came under the management of Sarah Stennett. They signed on with Universal Music.
In 2010, the girls worked with singer-songwriter Aaron Michael Cox.
In June 2011, Cimorelli collaborated with Ryan Beatty on a cover of Selena Gomez's song "Who Says."
Soon after signing on with Universal Music in 2009, the CimFam EP was released on December 6, 2011.
In the summer of 2012, Cimorelli was nominated for a Teen Choice Award in the category of "Web Star," but lost to Sophia Grace and Rosie, two British children known for their Super Bass cover and appearances on the Ellen DeGeneres show.
In the beginning of June 2012, Cimorelli was featured in the Just Dance 4 trailer featuring Flo Rida. They can be seen in the beginning and ending; in the very beginning, Christina, Lauren, Lisa, and Amy are in the front, and Dani and Katherine in the back towards the stairs; and at the end, Lauren and Dani are dancing next to each other while Christina, Lisa, and Katherine are dancing next to each other and Amy is toward the front.
Around August of 2012, Cimorelli teamed up with AT&T for their "Don't Text and Drive" campaign. The girls uploaded multiple videos dealing with the topic: one that detailed what they were doing, covers of the songs "Some Nights," "As Long As You Love Me," a "Don't Text and Drive Step Rally" that featured Ryan Beatty and a short chant they made, and a video of them urging users to take the AT&T pledge.
Early December 2012, the girls revealed that they had gotten their own VEVO channel and that the Believe It music video would be uploaded to that account on December 11, the same day the Believe It EP came out.
In August, the girls revealed two new songs at their final stop on the tour, Unsaid Things and The Last Time. They also sat down with Chelsea Briggs from Hollywire TV to talk about their upcoming debut album and Lisa said they had two albums worth of songs that they've written to start recording during August. They announced that they would be releasing their debut album before the year was out.
Also in August, Cimorelli won the 2013 Teen Choice Award for Choice Web Star.
On Friday September 13th, Lisa tweeted, "Can't. Wait. For. The. Album. You guys are really gonna get to know us and what we've been through with these songs.... Aaahhhh :D", leaving fans to believe the album would be released soon. On the same day, Christina tweeted, "Btw, we are filming TWO VIDEOS tomorrow!!!! I am REALLY excited about these two :D", leaving fans speculating whether they'd be originals or covers.
