Lily Elise Ends Her Trip Through The Nineties With Her Final Cover, Available On Her Official Website, www.LilyElise.com
Los Angeles, CA, December 23, 2013 -- Bay Area pop/R&B singer and songwriter Lily Elise inspired many with her throwback to the Nineties with her #Lilys90sMix series of music videos capturing the decade from year to year. She closes out the decade with her tenth and final cover of 1999's "Bills Bills Bills," by Destiny's Child.
Every Monday, for the last 10 weeks, she released one new cover of a classic from that era on her official website, www.lilyelise.com, as part of her #Lilys90sMix campaign.
As for her last cover, Lily Elise said, "Destiny's Child is everything. I think I played my Writing's On The Wall CD so many times it had scratches on it. I still have that CD, it's in my 90's main cover photo if you look closely."
Elise performed these numbers live in the studio, allowing viewers to experience the power of her live performance. She pays homage to these timeless songs while infusing her own sexy sense of soul. #Lilys90Mix includes Whitney Houston's "I'm Your Baby Tonight" , Mariah Carey's "I Don't Wanna Cry" , En Vogue's "My Lovin' (You're Never Gonna Get It)" , Tevin Campbell's "Can We Talk" , Brandy's "I Wanna Be Down" , TLC's "Waterfalls" , Aaliyah's "If Your Girl Only Knew" , Usher's "You Make Me Wanna" , Next's "Too Close" , and Destiny's Child's "Bills, Bills, Bills" . Each song is accompanied by cover art evocative of the original.
After enchanting America as part of "Team Xtina" on Season 1 of NBC's The Voice, Elise has been diligently working on her debut solo album.
Take a trip down memory lane with Lily Elise and her #Lilys90sMix.
Lily Elise is an R&B/Pop singer from the Bay Area. Her first jaunt into the music industry occurred when she tried out for an unknown singing competition show and ended up on Team Xtina on Season 1 of NBC's The Voice. In a recent interview, Lily reflected on that experience stating, "I learned so much about who I am as a person and as an artist … The Voice gave me a great platform, and it's my job to spring off of that."
In 2012, Lily Elise formed a band with some of her former USC classmates and began performing around Los Angeles in venues such as The Hard Rock Café, The Roxy, The Troubadour, and Hotel Café. She has sung the national anthem at recent Dodger, USC, and San Francisco Giants games, and her version of "Keep on Runnin'," by Jackie Edwards, was featured in the "Introducing Jot, from Ink" commercial for Chase Bank.
All the while, Lily Elise has been in the studio, writing and recording for her solo project as well as for other major artists. "I'm not just a voice; I have something to say," she explains. "Music influenced so much of who I am. I just want to give that back, whether it be through my own performance or through my songwriting.” This past year Lily has been in the studio writing with songwriters and producers such as The Underdogs (Beyonce, Whitney Houston, Chris Brown), Julia Michaels (Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato, Fifth Harmony), Monsters and Strangerz (Cher Lloyd, Rihanna, Carly Rae Jepson), Felix Snow (Cher Lloyd, Syrah), The Futuristics (Chris Brown, Bruno Mars, Flo-rida) and Jukebox (Willow Smith, Little Mix), just to name a few. Recently, Lily co-wrote 15-year-old Hungarian Idol winner and winner of the "Best New Artist" award in Hungary Gigi Radic's first single, “Daydream,” which was released through Magneoton / M-TON Records. The record went gold and "Daydream" broke records as the first song by a Hungarian artist to top the radio charts for over 10 weeks. Lily also co-wrote "The Story's Over," another track off of Gigi's debut record.
In addition, Lily Elise has been hard at work writing for her solo EP. This fall she plans on releasing a mixtape of 90's cover songs via YouTube, followed by her single, "Crash (Diggin’ My Way Out)".
