It’s 2012 and long overdue for someone to smack pop music across the face and tell her to pull herself together. Luckily for America, the ferociously talented and good-hearted divas from XELLE (pronounced ex-ELLE) have stepped up to the plate by serving up a healthy dose of glitz, glamour and vocals that could rival pop icons past and present. Their passion for great music aside, the group is adamant in their campaign to dispel the rumors that you must conform to a specific mold to achieve your dreams – whether it’s your size, age, sexual orientation or even your penchant for gender-bending. As the first music group to consist of two girls and a drag queen (JC Cassis, Rony G and Mimi Imfurst of “RuPaul’s Drag Race”), they represent girl power for a new generation.
Even though the concept of XELLE may sound like a novelty, their music and message are anything but. The music video for their first single – last year’s catchy dance/pop sleeper hit “Party Girl” – reached a whopping 330,000 YouTube views, and XELLE has since racked up 1,200
Facebook fans, 5,300 Twitter followers and an appearance on Oxygen’s “Jersey Couture.” Proceeds from XELLE’s latest empowering single, “Invincible,” will benefit GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network), an organization for students, parents and teachers striving for positive change in schools nationwide. The video for “Invincible” also features powerful, fan-submitted anti-bullying content and has racked up 80,000+ views so far. Recently, XELLE has rocked the crowds at the new XL Nightclub & Cabaret Lounge as well as the annual Next Night Out event at Industry Bar. XELLE fans can expect more performances in NYC and around the USA as well as XELLE’s debut full-length release later this year!
