Che'Nelle - A hot Sabahan and currently riding international fame

Boy, i'm proud with this girl. She's one hot chick and currently riding the R&B music waves, globally. I said globally judging from her Myspace http://www.myspace.com/chenelleworld and Youtube appearances!



.....and, she's trailing hot vibes on local radio station. Tune in to Hitz.fm, she's featured on their Malaysian Top 10 English artist.



According to Wikipedia:



Che’Nelle is a young R&B soul, reggae singer/songwriter, producer signed to Virgin Records America. She was born on March 10, 1983 as Cheryline Lim in Sabah, Malaysia to a Chinese Malaysian father and Indian-Dutch mother. Raised in Perth, Western Australia.
Her father ran a karaoke lounge, where Che'nelle began singing as a toddler. She has played in bands and written her own music for years but it was American music veteran Charles Dixon, who discovered her music on Che'Nelle's myspace page.


Dixon took her material to Virgin Records and flew Che'nelle business class to Los Angeles at the end of last year to meet with the label. Within two days she had signed the deal and was being marketed as a world artist. Che'nelle worked as a promotions assistant before moving to New York in January after signing a six-album deal with Virgin Records America, the same label as Lenny Kravitz, Janet Jackson and Ben Harper. In Australia, she is represented by EMI.



She also shares the same management team as Kanye West, performing as the opening act on his Australian tour in March 2006.
Che'nelle collaborated with UK based music producer Manon Dave (aka Schizo) on a track for her forthcoming album. The two had also been collaborating on a number of projects prior to Che'nelle's deal with Virgin Records.
Che'nelle, studied music at the West Australian Academy of Performing Arts.
Her song, "Teach Me How To Dance" was featured in the movie Take the Lead.
Her debut album "Things Happen For A Reason" is due out on August 28.



Now, how's that? I say "Keep on rocking, gal"
