Cimorelli creates Christian-pop music with relevant social messages

J-P Mauro - published on 07/27/17

These young ladies really know how to write a hook.

Cimorelli released “Never Let Me Go” on their 2016 album, Alive. It is one of the more spiritual tracks on the crossover album. It tackles the topics of insecurity and faith through a pop feel that would be perfect for the radio.

It was written by the second youngest, Lauren, and features Lisa for the choruses. Lisa’s voice is one of the strongest in the group. She can really belt it and her melisma is the most fluid.

Cimorelli is going to find lasting success thanks to their choice of subjects and popular sound. The music is very mainstream and accessible to a general audience, while the topics they sing about are varied.

They are a Christian band, but not all their songs are specifically about the Lord. They sing about boys, self-esteem, and turning from self-harm in between songs about their faith.

They were raised in a strong Catholic household. They are only six of eleven children, all of whom are home-schooled by their mother, Lynn.
