Victoria Abraham defines one up and coming artist each week so you can impress your friends with your musical brilliance. This week, she tackles Cimorelli, a girl group from Sacramento, California.
Cimorelli, pronounced sim-or-ELL-ee, is a group of six singing sisters who are as talented as they are adorable. Ranging in age from 12 to 21, the ladies combine their love of R&B, hip-hop, country and 80s synth pop to create a unique musical sound.
