Cimorelli climbs the charts, gets award nomination
With more than 220 million total upload views, almost 15 million channel views and nearly three-quarters of a million subscribers, Cimorelli, a group of six sisters from El Dorado Hills, vaulted up Billboard’s Social 50 Chart from No. 16 to No. 3, right behind superstars Rihanna and Adele, and just ahead of Justin Bieber.
The ranking is determined by a formula blending artist’s weekly additions of friends, fans and followers along with artist page views and weekly song plays.
The group also got a major boost from fans with a Teen Choice Awards nomination under the Web Star category. Vote at teenchoiceawards.com.
In December 2011 Cimorelli debuted at No. 6 on iTunes U.S. Pop Chart and No. 22 on the overall iTunes album chart with the release of their first EP, “The CimFam EP.” Reaching the No. 1 trending topic worldwide on Twitter in the week prior to the release, the EP charted internationally on iTunes in the Top 25 in several countries, including Germany, Australia, New Zealand and The Netherlands. “The CimFam EP” is available now via iTunes.
With more than 700,000 subscribers, 275,000 Facebook fans, 150,000 Twitter followers and 31 weeks on Billboard’s Social 50 Chart, Cimorelli has built an extraordinary online presence with an army of devoted fans.
The Cimorelli story is well-known to millions of young fans that have discovered and followed their musical evolution on the internet via YouTube and CimorelliMusic.com. In August 2009 Cimorelli posted a clip of themselves singing Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the USA,” and were discovered by a well-known music manager’s own teenage daughter. Since that time, the group of six sisters (Christina, Katherine, Lisa, Amy, Lauren and Dani) from a family of 11 between the ages of 11 and 21 have signed worldwide recording contracts with Universal Music and have been working on an album of original music due out later this year.
