Kacey Fifield is a singer and actress who has become popular, very quickly. Kacey is eleven years old and about as adorable as you can get. She is originally from Chicago, but now lives in LA. The world of entertainment is gaining a new icon. Kacey is on the rise in entertainment, and is extremely gifted vocally and in acting, but it doesn’t stop there. To become an icon, it is necessary to be known and involved in many fields of entertainment and Kacey is doing just that. She reaches beyond acting and singing, and on into dance and fashion to the point of being a trend setter. Her fashion sense can be easily seen in her video “When I Grow Up”. There’s many great actors and singers, but to make it to the top and beyond, a person needs to stand out, and never be forgotten. That is Kacey, once you watch her, you never forget, she becomes recognizable instantly.

To find a spot in the entertainment field it requires a lot of hard work and determination to make it, and for those who do, there’s always a beginning. For Kacey it started all the way back to Chicago when she was seven years old. When she was seven, she began taking acting lessons. Within a few months Kacey went to IMTA in New York which is a talent competition. She received a few acting awards through them as well as it being her first time acting in a public setting. Six months later they moved to LA.

Kacey made her debut acting performance in NY at seven; at eight she made her singing debut. It was at her school’s band performance that she sang publicly for the first time. The song was Viva la Vida by Coldplay. Her next performance was at her school’s talent show where she sang, “Shy” from Once Upon A Mattress. This was her beginning, but has now grown in a huge way in a short time.

Kacey loves to make people laugh, so for her, comedy showcases are a favorite. For singing, she says “Shy” was a favorite because it surprised people who didn’t know she could sing.

Already at this stage of her career she has been recognized for her talents. Kacey has been shortlisted in three Grammy categories for her debut single “When I Grow Up”. Earlier this year she was nominated by Young Artist Awards for best young actress in a short film and web-series.

Game Shakers is one of Nickelodeon’s hit series, and one of which you can find Kacey. On Game Shakers she played Karissa, and loved it. “It was a super fun set and the other actors were so supportive, friendly and goofy, that working with them was a pleasure”, says Kacey. She also says the producer, director and crew were pretty amazing as well.

Like anyone else Kacey dreams about life as an actress and her long-term dream is to one day win an Oscar and be a role model for other actors. “Shorter term dream is to play a bit rebellious girl who through many adventures in the wild saves the world or a day or something like that”, says Kacey.  She would also like to play a spy or heroine. “I think this type of role would be so much  fun either in a feature film or a TV series”, says Kacey.

One of her videos is called, Hear Me Out which she wrote. “I wrote the lyrics to the song with the thought of people listening to us, younger generation”, says Kacey.   The video is meant to show the world needs more kindness and to help people understand that kindness matters. Her video should inspire others to make the world a better place. The younger generation can often see things differently and help bring change.

Hear Me Out, took two days to film and was fun for everyone. It was fun for Kacey because she loves being on set. “I had a group of kids and we all became friends and had a great time filming and goofing around during breaks”, says Kacey.

Her music video, California is a bit different, because it was partially filmed during her other video, When I Grow Up. “It is lighter in subject and it talks about  me moving to California and enjoying my journey”, says Kacey. When I Grow up was her first music video, and it has been a huge success.

  When it comes to entertainment, the entertainer is always looking to make people happy and bring some kind of emotion. That is exactly what Kacey does and what she loves. “I really love making people happy, making the audience smile or laugh. I also love making people feel something special and influence their thinking through comedy, drama or my singing”, Kacey says.  Kacey is a first class entertainer.

Aliyah is one of the most brilliant vocalists you will find coming up today. Her voice  is geared for contemporary pop, she could easily hold her own with people like Alicia Keys or  Christina Aguilera. Her vocal range is beyond most and she uses that range very effectively. On top of all of that, she has the looks to go with it; gorgeous. Aliyah belongs in front of a camera.

The journey for Aliyah has had many great experiences and opportunities. At the age of eight is when it all began. She started out singing at several showcases weekly for about a year. When she turned nine Aliyah performed at a charity event to raise funds for the Boys and Girls Club of La Habra. It was a large event with over 300 people in attendance. At the age of ten she had the opportunity to showcase at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia with Disney celebrities like, Caroline Sunshine from, Shake It Up. “It was really scary because there were over 1000 people for the show, but when I finished  performing it felt great” says Aliyah. Then moving on into age thirteen she found herself performing with American Idol finalist, Todrick Hall and for platinum singer, Jessie McCartney.

While Aliyah loves all her shows, she does have a couple that stands out to her. Performing with Todrick was definitely one of those. “The audience was one of the most diverse of all the shows I have ever done. People were not afraid to scream, jump, and yell. It felt like a giant family” says Aliyah.  Her performance for the Children s Hospital Los Angeles Blood Drive was another she enjoyed doing. She found this to be a touching event. “I met so many children and teens with many health problems. Some of those kids became my friends, I added them to my Instagram, and we still stay in contact” Aliyah says.

Aliyah has done well with singing. She was a semi finalist twice for the Kidz Bop Kidzstar USA Contest. Aliyah won a scholarship from the Broadway Dream Foundation to attend a summer program. At this program she received lessons from Broadway voice coach Tituss Burgess and from Spencer Liff Broadway Choreographer. She was also awarded the lead role in the Broadway Dream Foundation’s production of, Beautiful.

A microphone is no stranger to  Aliyah, but neither is the camera. There is a good chance you have seen her on TV on Disney Channel’s, Jessie. On this show she was Luke Ross’s arm candy in an episode. Also she had the lead role in a short film called, Confined. She was the mean girl Chandra. On top of all of that, you can also find her in Pharrell’s famous video, Happy. Aliyah was a dancer in the video. “Pharrell’s video was another awesome experience” says Aliyah.

Performing gives Aliyah the opportunity to go places and meet people. “When I perform I get to meet so many great people and I love sharing moments with them” Aliyah says. When it comes down to it performing is the best part, when she sings it is like being transported to a different place for Aliyah. At her performances one of the artists she likes to cover is Adele. “I really enjoy covering her songs because she is an amazing singer with an incredible voice” Aliyah says. Her favorite songs are those that have a message, and Adele’s songs always have a message to share.

Writing songs is a skill great artist have to master, and Aliyah has already started writing. She has written over fifty so far. One of the songs was produced when she was eleven year old called, Invincible. This song is special to her because she was going through a hard time in school, so through writing this song she was able to vent. “I hope that song helps other kids who are going through a hard time” says Aliyah. She has a new song she is getting ready to write for a new single that should be ready by summer.

When it comes down to it, Aliyah just absolutely loves to sing. Every performance she does, she hopes her music is able to touch people the way music touches her.

Ellie Occleston

Ellie Occleston

 

 

 

 

Introducing Ellie Occleston who is originally from Liverpool, but is currently living in Madrid Spain and she is spreading beauty throughout the region. Ellie is a beautiful young lady, but she also carries a beautiful voice as well. She loves to sing classical music and pop, and no matter what it is, it is heaven.

Ellie first started singing when she was eight years old at her school in the UK. Ellie had never sung in public before when her school started auditioning people for a concert, so she thought it would be fun to try it. She said she was really surprised that people thought she sang well. This was the beginning of her musical journey.

Ellie has been out performing a lot since her beginning and since she moved to Spain her performances has included singing classical music at the Spanish National Opera House in Madrid. However more recently she appeared on the Spanish version of, The Voice for Kids. She sang pop for this. Ellie says both performances were scary, but to be able to sing in such amazing places, to be watched and applauded by large audiences, was incredible.

Ellie says what is really weird about it all is that she is normally a shy person when she meets new people, but is very happy to sing and perform in front of a large audience. It is like she is a completely different person. Singing just makes her feel happy, and when she looks out in the audience even if it is just her friends and they are smiling and enjoying her music and how it is effecting them, it makes her truly happy. She says at the end of a performance and she hears the applause, she just smiles till her face aches. When she goes to perform, she can deliver a wide range of songs to the listeners from classical/opera to pop. Her current favorite artists to cover when she performs are, One Republic, Bastille, Birdy, and Corinne Bailey Rae.

Her over all goal is to become a professional musician.  Ellie’s only draw back is that she has not decided which genre to pursue. She says she is just fourteen and figures she still has a bit of time. She is also learning the piano and guitar which helps her with her singing and songwriting. “My goal is to just get better at them so my pet dog doesn’t go and hide because of the noise” says Ellie.

Ellie has started writing songs, which she says is not as easy as it seems. So far she has written four songs, but has many ideas for lyrics, and melodies which she will continue to develop. She always carries a notebook with her to write the ideas down as she gets them. She says a lot of times ideas will pop up when you least expect it. She says it is a really strange feeling as lyrics usually pop in her head and then begin to think about the melody. Ellie feels that all songs you write are special to the writer, because they all usually come from life experiences.

Ellie has also made her way to TV as well. She has been on twice so far, and both were since she has lived in Madrid. The first time was when she was singing classical music and the Spanish Opera House in front of about 1000 people, and also when she made it past thousands of contestants to get to the TV part of The Voice For Kids. Ellie did make it to the blind auditions, but unfortunately she did not get past, but she said it was amazingly fun, but scary.

Ellie is truly an amazing new artist and it does not matter what the genre of song, she can bring it! Because of her classical side, Ellie can deliver pop songs brilliantly. Classical singers are far more controlled and clear, and what they can do with songs outside of classical is amazing, and Ellie is more proof of that.   She says she aims to mature into being a strong and well-rounded artist by continuing to develop her singing abilities. Her singing abilities are certainly growing very well and people around the world are going to love her music. Don’t miss any of her music, stop by and listen often on her music channel.

March 4th says music is a form of communication. If you allow it, it can change your entire mood whether you are happy and excited or heavyhearted and depressed. Music can help you connect to your feelings. They want to play music to let people know they are not alone.

Chad has a wonderful soft voice that gives meaning to everything he says. His voice just adds so much extra character to the song, and his song delivery is one of the best. He makes you pay attention to every word he sings. This is music at it`s finest. When Chad sings covers he puts his own spin on them showing his great creativity for producing some fantastic music. Chad is not a singer. He is a artist!

Chad`s vocals are very good, and it is amazing that he only started singing about a year ago. For most people it takes quiet some time to develop their voice, but for Chad it seems he was made for singing. This great sound that he has, has all come with out any training. His family and friends were the first to hear his music, and they had to be proud of what they heard. He has performed for his school talent show, and at the Elizabethtown Fair for a couple thousand people. He really enjoyed playing at the fair with a large crowd. He also played at a street fair in Lititz Pa. called Second Friday. At this fair he played along with his guitar teacher which was exciting for him.

For Chad a lot of his inspiration comes from with in, but from having the chance to share his music with others, and the positive feed back he has gotten, gives him a greater desire to sing and play. He just has so much fun when it comes to performing, and loves to entertain people with his music. Chad hopes to make something of himself playing music, and for people to know his music around the world. With the talent that he has, he will be known all around very shortly. Even in the short amount of time he has been singing, he already has ten original songs. The ideas for his songs just comes out of know where, he says, and mostly about girls.

His dreams have a great chance of happening.  His guitar playing is very smooth, and his soft voice will grab people`s attention and with some luck, just maybe some one will spot him and begin to change his life. One of the greatest things an artist can hope for is that, people enjoy their music, and for Chad they sure do!.
