Artist: Marcela Carmona
About the Episode:
Born in Hollywood, California, Marcela displayed a natural sense of rhythm and melody since before she could talk. At the age of 3, her mother hired a friend of the family to teach Marcela piano. She devoted herself to her classical training for 14 years with aspirations of being a concert pianist. She received no formal vocal training, and learned to sing instead at church and in her public school choirs.
Marcela was born to be a musician and she works hard to make sure music is incorporated into every things she does. When she’s not performing and writing her music, she’s busy collaborating with other talented Los Angeles based musicians, recording and performing as a guest/session vocalist and pianist, leading congregations as a Catholic Cantor, and providing private music instruction in both Voice and Piano to students of all ages.
