Young Singing Sensations Cimorelli To Perform In Kids Zone

Breakout singing group Cimorelli, a popular favorite among younger music fans, has been added to a robust list of standout acts that will perform on Saturday, July 27 and Sunday, July 28 during the Kroger Super Weekend at the Brickyard at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Cimorelli will perform at 11 a.m. Saturday, July 27 in the IMS Kids Zone hosted by Radio Disney Indianapolis located just north of Pagoda Plaza.

Comprised of six sisters from Sacramento, Calif., Cimorelli became well-known through online videos showcasing Christina, 22; Katherine, 21; Lisa, 19; Amy, 18; Lauren, 14; and Dani, 13, singing current pop hits in a cappella style.

Each girl was introduced to music between the ages of 2 and 4 by their mother, Lynne, who is a composer and former choir director who taught the girls classical piano, three-part barbershop harmonizing and vocal jazz. In 2002, Christina, Katherine and Lisa began to perform locally and recruited Amy and Lauren as they became old enough to join the group. The youngest sister, Dani, joined the group last summer.

A popular YouTube video of Cimorelli signing Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the USA” in August 2009 led to the group signing with Republic Records in 2010. Cimorelli’s YouTube Channel, where fans can watch clips of the group performing songs by Katy Perry, Taio Cruz and Bruno Mars, has more than 2 million subscribers and has amassed more than 500 million views since it was introduced two years ago.

In the process of recording their debut album, the Cimorelli sisters have been inspired to write, sing and perform music by acts such as The Jackson 5, The Beach Boys and Stevie Wonder. The group’s latest single and EP, “Made In America,” are available at all digital retailers.

Big Machine Records artists also performing during the Kroger Super Weekend at the Brickyard include headliner Justin Moore, who will play Saturday, July 27 on the Pagoda Plaza Stage after the Indiana 250 NASCAR Nationwide Series race with The Cadillac Three opening the show. Moore also will play a pre-race mini concert Sunday, July 28 on the IMS main straightaway before the 1 p.m. start of the 20th Running of the Crown Royal Presents the Samuel Deeds 400 at the Brickyard Powered by BigMachineRecords.com.

Other Big Machine Label Group stars that will perform Sunday at the Brickfest Music Festival beginning at 9 a.m. include Season 3 winner of NBC’s hit show, “The Voice,” Cassadee Pope, who also will sing the national anthem during pre-race ceremonies. Rising stars Laura Bell Bundy, The Cadillac Three and Dustin Lynch will perform pre-race concerts on the infield stage inside Turn 2, near the IMS Hall of Fame Museum.

All performances are free with admission to the track for each day.
