We are thrilled to have Isabella Nicole sing for us again at our Mardi Gras Dinner, Dance and SIlent Auction on February 20th. Many of you may remember her when she first sang in Cumberland three years ago at the 2013 Winterfest Dinner. Since then she has sung at the Pub Night at the Maple Hall in 2014 and the Heritage Home Tour in St. Andrew's Church in December 2014 and she made a surprise appearance at our Christmas carolling around the village tree in December 2015.
An up and coming musical singing sensation, we are thrilled that she will be joining us to sing a set she is preparing just for this occasion. Here is a little background on Isabella Nicole with some links to her most recent recordings.
Isabella Nicole is 13-years-old and was born in The Netherlands. She had her first major public performance at age 8. After moving to Canada in 2010, her talent and continued hard work has resulted in regular public engagements. She is an 'old soul' and her ability to create the sound and embody the spirit of the old blues cronners such as Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone and Etta James belies her tender age.
- Since 2012, Isabella has performed at many Ottawa Valley fairs, as well as the Children’s Wish Foundation Isabella Nicole - Make A Wish Gala 2015, Roger’s House and Heartwood House charity events. She has appeared on TV, sung the National Anthem at the Ottawa Skyhawk’s basketball games and entertained at the Governor General of Canada’s 2013 Christmas reception.
- In 2013, Isabella won Platinum Gold in the vocalist category at the Thunderstruck Canada competitions.
- In December 2014, Isabella Nicole released her first CD featuring a blues-styled rendition of Isabella Nicole “O Holy Night” (Cover)
- Ottawa Bluesfest (2014 Ottawa Bluesfest Compliation ISABELLA NICOLE) and (Isabella Nicole 2015 Bluesfest), Isabella Bluesman TJ Wheeler invited Isabella Nicole to share the stage with him to sing solo at the, one of the top ten music in North America.
- As well in 2015, she was invited to sing at the prestigious AIM for Mental Health Gala in Pebble Beach, California.
