Cimorelli is a singing group that became well-known through YouTube. They are currently signed to Universal Music's Island label. The band consists of six sisters: Christina, Katherine, Lisa, Amy, Lauren, and Dani Cimorelli. Their debut album is expected to be released in 2013.
In 2007, the five oldest girls began Cimorelli as a group, and recorded covers of popular songs and uploaded them to YouTube. In 2010, the family moved to Southern California so they girls could pursue their music career. In 2008, the girls released their first EP called "Hello There". Each song was written by Christina and Lauren with the vocal harmonies arranged by Lisa. It has never been officially released.
In 2009, the band came under the management of Sarah Stennett. They signed on with Universal Music and soon after, the CimFam EP was released on December 6, 2011. In 2010, the girls worked with singer-songwriter Aaron Michael Cox. In June 2011, Cimorelli collaborated with Ryan Beatty on a cover of Selena Gomez's song "Who Says."
In the summer of 2012, Cimorelli was nominated for a Teen Choice Award in the category of "Web Star," but lost to Sophia Grace and Rosie, two British children known for their Super Bass cover and appearances on the Ellen DeGeneres show. In the beginning of June 2012, Cimorelli was featured in the Just Dance 4 trailer featuring Flo Rida. Around August of 2012, Cimorelli teamed up with AT&T for their "Don't Text and Drive" campaign. The girls uploaded multiple videos dealing with the topic: one that detailed what they were doing, covers of the songs "Some Nights," "As Long As You Love Me," a "Don't Text and Drive Step Rally" that featured Ryan Beatty and a short chant they made, and a video of them urging users to take the AT&T pledge. Early December 2012, the girls revealed that they had gotten their own VEVO channel and that the Believe It music video would be uploaded to that account on December 11, the same day the Believe It EP came out.
