Gabriella has so much to give the pop world and she is out letting everyone see and hear what she has. Gabriella’s voice was made for pop. Listening to her you soon feel the goosebumps rise up on your arms and find yourself lost in the story she is telling.

There is a cover song that was just recently released by Gabriella, featuring Micheal Cimino called, Like I’m Gonna Lose You. What she brings to this song is magical. Her soft beautiful voice takes you to a whole new peaceful realm with a feeling of warmth. The addition of Micheal to the song helped to give it great depth and a tender vibe, luring one to the other. The chemistry they  present, and the delivery, makes you want to cuddle up to someone special. This song choice was perfect for Gabriella. “When I first heard the song I loved the way everything came together; the lyrics the melody and the beat. To me the lyrics says it all” says Gabriella. She will thrive in the pop world as an artist capturing the imaginations and hearts of millions of listeners. However if Gabriella and Micheal at some point team up as a duet; they will own it all. The chemistry they posses and blend of their voices would put the world of music in their hands.

As wonderfully talented as Gabriella is, she held it all to herself until about twelve years of age. While she was a bit shy about performing in public by herself, the vocal teacher she started with was a big help with that problem. Her voice teacher booked shows for them each month. Her first one being at a Cuban restaurant. The diners at that restaurant that day was some very lucky people to see a brand new pop star come to light.

Since Gabriella’s beginning at the Cuban restaurant, she has been delighting audiences around many different venues and events.  One of her favorites turns out to be her solo performance at the Smith Center for Performing Arts in 2012. At this event she covered a song by Amy Winehouse, Valerie. She also enjoyed performing recently at the 94.1 kids mix event. At this event she performed a song by Leslie Grace, in half Spanish and half English.

Getting out and performing is what Gabriella likes best. To get out and show off what she has been working on and seeing the reaction from the audience. “It helps me grow more as an artist and I become more confident on stage knowing what works and what I need to work on”, says Gabriella. The artist she likes covering the most right now is Tori Kelly. Gabriella says she finds herself singing Tori’s songs around the house. It is the songs from Tori’s earlier EP’s that she likes best where many of the songs were just Tori and the guitar.

The goal in Gabriella’s life is to become an artist and actress. She looks forward to getting a college degree and using her voice to represent kids that are bullied or harassed because of their gender or sexuality.

Acting is part of  Gabriella resume. She has been acting since she was seven years old. Gabriella has appeared in a couple of commercials and has been on a web series, but mostly she has been working on short films and feature films. Gabriella has a movie premier on October 8th for a feature film. She plays the role of Erin in the movie, Atelophobia, directed by Joe Lujan.

Writing is something Gabriella enjoys doing, however she says most have not seen the light of day. She is hoping that soon, she will get them produced. With all the passion she has in her cover songs, one can only imagine what it will be like with her own songs. It will be a hard to wait.

Even with so much talent and time spent with singing and acting, she always likes spending time with family and friends every chance she gets. Gabriella likes to volunteer for various causes like, Alex’s Lemonade stand which raises money for childhood cancer. Here recently she joined up with Tunes For Totes which raises money for the Make A Wish Foundation. She likes to make people laugh and to express herself with music, acting  and fashion.

There’s no limit to where Gabriella’s talent and passion will take her. It will be exciting watching her career grow and thrive.

Jase Nelson

Canada recently had one of the biggest heart-throbs to ever hit the stage, Justin Bieber. Now Canada is home to a brand new heart-throb, Jase Nelson. Jase is coming up strong with one of those voices that makes girls melt right where they stand. It will not be long till girls coming to see Jase will have to take a number and stand in a very, long line. One day Justin will look up, and wonder where all the girls went, and he will find them on Jase’s doorstep.

Jase has an amazing new video called, Cupid. This is a cover song originally done by Sam Cooke. It was Jase’s grandma that came up with the idea to sing Cupid. His grandma thought it would be a great song that young girls and older woman would enjoy and relate to. This was a perfect choice his grandma made. Jase sang the song perfectly, and the video itself depicts exactly what Jase’s life is going to be.

Jase Nelson at stars2come  In the video Cupid, girls become taken by Jase with the help of Cupid and her famous arrows. Not long into the video girls are coming out of the bushes after Jase, and he soon has a long line chasing him. In the end he chooses a girl in a wheelchair to be his love. He in fact with his choice, he becomes a hero. Cupid may just be a video, but after learning a bit about Jase, it is clear he would have chosen the girl regardless of Cupid. Jase said he had a blast filming the video in LA. He also says, he is not used to having girls chase him, and that felt kind of weird. Because of the video Jase was able to meet many friends. One of the kids that he met was Barry White’s grandson, Jason. It was exciting for Jase to have Jason be part of the video. Jase’s brother and sister were part of the video as well, and Jase was happy about that. Cupid is a lot of fun to watch, and you get to see what is to come for Jase.

It was at the age of three, that Canada’s newest heart-throb began his journey. At three years old Jase, like many people would sing along with the radio. By the time he was turning five his grandma heard him singing along to a Justin Timberlake song, and it surprised her that he knew all the words, and could sing on pitch. His grandma asked if he liked singing. He said, “oh yes I do”. His grandma then asked if he wanted to take lessons, and he excitedly said, yes!

Not long after Jase turned five, he began singing to the public. He started out on stage at, Sunnybrook Farms which is a tourist attraction where he lives. Since then, he has been on over fifty stages around his province. He performed at Calgary Stampede in Calgary Alberta from age seven through nine. Jase said he loved performing there, he got to perform in front of thousands of people. When his second and third year performing come around, he was excited to see people coming just to see him. When Jase was six, he was cast as Chip in Beauty and The Beast at their local college. Jase said it was exhilarating being in front of a live audience with a huge cast to work alongside.

Jase Nelson at stars2come With no great surprise Jase has been getting considerable attention from the media. He has made many radio interviews and has been featured in magazines that are distributed all across Canada and the US. He has also done a great many local newspaper interviews. There are plans in the works for TV and other interviews to come in the near future.

Nerves are something all performers must overcome, but for Jase it is all part of the experience. He says he likes the feeling of nervousness before he gets on stage. Jase will be all shaky and excited, then he gets on stage, starts singing and it all goes away. It always makes him feel good knowing that people came to listen and enjoy him.

Jase says he hopes to become a household name. He wants to encourage other kids to sing, play an instrument, read books or perhaps write their own book. There is a lot going on with bullying, and Jase wants to do his part and speak out against it, and give kids a voice so they can be more confident.

Cover songs has been a big part of Jase, but he is now beginning to perform songs of his own. He has written three songs with his producer in LA. He says he has lots of ideas and he presents them to his producer, and from  there they work on building a song. The three songs that Jase has written so far are, I Miss You Michael, Waking Up, and I Take My Hat Off To You, all of which you can find on iTunes. The song, I Miss You Michael came to him after he seen a billboard of Michael Jackson’s new album. Waking Up, it came from a short film that he was the lead in. I Take My Hat Off To You, his grandma came up with the title and was written for fun because he always wears a hat, and has over 50 of them.

Jase Nelson at stars2come  Don’t be fooled, music is not the only thing Jase is mastering, he is also an author. Jase writes children’s books. They are working on getting his first book to print in January 2015. The book is about a Canadian boy and his snowman that he built and becomes his friend. His second book is already written, and just need to prepare it for print.

Other than Jase’s books going to print soon, there are other exciting things coming from him. He is featured in a teenager’s magazine out of Florida called, Teen Fare. It will be out in January 2015. Also in January he is hoping to film his next video and by March be on his third. Jase has begun working on more songs to add to his album, so be on the lookout for those.

Jase does a lot of great things, but he always takes his music seriously. He takes voice lessons, piano, guitar, and dance workshops because he wants to be a great singer. He does everything to follow his dream, this is not his families dream, but his. Jase’s family does help to make sure he balances things out, have fun and play. Sometimes people thinks he is girl because of his long hair, he doesn’t care, he loves it anyway. He is always kind, respectful and considerate of others.

It is not hard to see and understand why he is becoming a teen idol. Jase is extremely talented, handsome and a heart of gold. Now these three things, are things, that no girl can resist. It may have felt weird for all the girls chasing him in Cupid, but it is something he might as well get use to.

Ashmin Skyy

Ashmin Skyy

 

When people talk about California it is often about the beaches, Hollywood, or maybe Disney, but this is coming to an end and soon the talk will be about the beautiful and talented, Ashmin Skyy. Ashmin is pure beauty, and her vocal talent far exceeds many that are currently playing on the radio today. In a music video she made called, Mistletoe shows just how captivating she is. Her vocals could not have been more perfect and the camera truly showed how stunning she really is.   This was a well made video and Ashmin said it was really fun to make. She chose this song because it was cute, popular and it was Christmas time. She said the best part was when she and Dillon Scott, were walking down the sidewalk and two of her friends began to play, Let’s Get It On by Marvin Gaye. That is why they were laughing so hard in the video. The true essence of Ashmin was captured in this video. She is simply, perfect.

Ashmin’s talent was noticed early in life when she made her first performance at age nine at her 4th grade Talent Show at Tildenville Elementary School. She sang Unwritten by Natasha Bedingfield and after her performance everyone started coming up to her and telling her what a great job she had done.  She has gone on to do many shows and one of her favorites that came to mind was a show at Canoga Park High School in Southern California. It was a lazy day for her and she walked out on stage in a t-shirt and sweet pants. After her show students came up to her asking questions and it seemed very comfortable. Another favorite was when she performed at a middle school, she performed an original and they literally got mobbed out of the school. She said the kids were following them to the car, it was quiet surreal for them. She may have been mobbed at this performance, but it will not be the last, this will become common for Ashmin and it will be coming soon.

Ashmin Skyy at stars2comeAshmin really loves Rihanna. She says, she is so versatile with her music and that’s why she is a huge fan. Ashmin also says that Rihanna can be pop, urban, rockish, and she likes her island influenced songs and she can take it down and do ballads. Just like Rihanna, Ashmin too gets a lot of attention when she performs, and this is what Ashmin really likes, the attention. Performing gives her a chance to show off how hard she works on her craft. When people are dancing around and appreciating her music that makes her want to work even harder to get a deeper reaction.

Her goal for now is to stay in the studio and get more singles out. She also wants to continue performing at events and honing that part of her craft. Ashmin is working to establish a fan base so she will have people looking forward to things she has in-store  for the future. Ashmin got a taste of what her future holds when she did her debut performance of her original song, “Explode” which she wrote. She made this debut at Venice Beach, California on May 3rd, 4th and 5th for a difficult crowd and it came off as a major success. This is the major obstacle for a artist being able to please a difficult crowd, once this is accomplished, then one can say they are truly an artist, and Ashmin is certainly that.

Even with all the things Ashmin has going on, she still remains humble. She learned quickly that the industry is very tough and there has to be a degree of confidence to be a part of it. She would like people to know that she has to turn off Ashmin Skyy and just be Ashmin at home, (or else). She wants to stay personable and Tangible with her listeners and let them know she works just as hard as anyone else and if they do the same they too can attain their dreams.

Ashmin is one amazing artist, she is beautiful outside and in, it is her wonderful personality that gives her that great inner beauty. It will be a great challenge for anyone to rise up to the talent that she has. Ashmin may love Rihanna, but  you can bet once Rihanna hears Ashmin, she will have a new favorite artist herself. Ashmin is proof of what hard work will create, and her hard work has brought her to the point to where she is, astounding! To help keep track of everything she is doing stop by her Facebook fan page often.
