August 20, 2013
The six sisters and singers of Cimorelli will hit the stage at Good Morning America tomorrow morning, before performing at Global Genes | RARE Project’s 2nd Annual RARE Tribute to Champions of Hope Benefit Gala on Saturday, September 21st.
The annual charity event is designed to bring together various stakeholders who Care About Rare™, while honoring many pioneering individuals who are working tirelessly to advocate for the millions of patients and their families affected by rare and genetic diseases. Tickets to the charity event are available at: /2013-gala-registration/.
“We are delighted to have the Cimorelli sisters performing at our 2013 gala to help raise awareness for the millions of people collectively affected by chronic and life threatening rare and genetic conditions,” said Nicole Boice, president, Global Genes | RARE Project. “Expect an amazing night filled with inspiration as the rare disease community unites once again to honor our RARE Champions of Hope™.”
The all-girl group, popularized on YouTube and signed to Universal Music’s Island label, are expected on the popular morning talk show to perform and discuss their debut album.
With over 500 million views and two million subscribers on YouTube, the six sisters of Cimorelli have grown their enthusiastic fan base to such a level that they recently won a Teen Choice Award for Web Star, and when they released their “Made in America” EP in June, it debuted in the Top 10 worldwide on the iTunes charts.
Known for their tight harmonies, Christina, Katherine, Lisa, Amy, Lauren and Dani (ranging in age from 13-23 years old) started their group in 2007, playing many local gigs in Northern California after having spent several years in musical theater. In 2009, they put up an acappella cover of Miley Cyrus’ song “Party in the USA” on YouTube, which attracted the attention of a well known music manager’s own teenage daughter in London and led to a record deal with Universal Island and Republic Records. They then moved to Los Angeles along with their five brothers. Cimorelli has since released three EP’s and over 180 YouTube videos of both covers and special interest videos, and they are currently working on an album of original music due out later this year, led by the single “Made in America.”
