Erdean vocalist native to Boston Massachusetts and raised in Orlando, FL. She is described as a versatile vocalist with a very powerful and melodic vibe. Her main musical inspirations are those of John Legend, Rihanna, and Bob Marley. In addition, she enjoys music of all styles. Although Ariel has been singing her entire life, it wasn’t until she was 12 years old, that she started singing professionally. Her first big stage performance was when she opened for LL Cool J and Trina at The Strand Theatre in Boston, Massachusetts. Later, she went on to perform at the Sao Lourenco festival in Cape Verde in 2013 amongst a plethora of special events. One of Ariel’s favorite accomplishments is when she participated in the Farewell Season of American Idol. Her powerful rendition of “If I ain’t got you” by Alicia Keys landed her a ticket with a unanimous yes to Hollywood Week. Unfortunately, her American Idol journey ended there. However, Ariel’s drive and passion to reach stardom wasn’t interrupted nor did it derail her from living her dreams. She is now pursuing her passion full throttle.
