Cimorelli (sim-or-ELL-ee) is a singing group popularized on YouTube and signed to Universal Music's Island label. Called, by Sacramento Magazine, "the best family performing group since The Jackson 5," Cimorelli is made up of 6 sisters, Christina, Katherine, Lisa, Amy, Lauren, and Dani.
As of February 2012, Cimorelli has over 135 million total video views and 500,000 subscribers on YouTube.
All members of the group are or were homeschooled by their mother.
In 2007, the oldest five girls launched Cimorelli as a vocal group. The entire family of 11 children moved to Southern California so the girls could pursue their music career. Cimorelli released an Island Records debut EP in December 2011. The EP features 4 cover songs (Skyscraper by Demi Lovato, Dynamite by Taio Cruz, Price Tag by Jessie J, and What Makes You Beautiful by One Direction), a Christmas cover (All I Want for Christmas Is You by Mariah Carey), and an original single (Million Bucks). The single was written by Cimorelli and produced by 3x Grammy-winner Neff-U. Relying exclusively on social media for publicity, the CimFam EP reached #6 on iTunes popchart in the US within 12 hours of release. It also reached iTunes pop chart performances as high as Canada (#5), New Zealand (#9), Mexico (#10), Australia (#15), Germany (#21) and The Netherlands (#22). Christina says, "We are definitely looking forward to tour this year, and meet all of our fans."
