British-born singer songwriter Charleesa opens the heart and mind through mellifluous melodies and intimate lyrics that she delivers with the passionate sincerity of a crusader and the sensitivity of a healer. She desires to inspire people with her current repertoire which is written with an optimistic source, we feel, we dream and ultimately we want to be happy. These songs are as elevating as they are evocative.
Delving into the world of pop, her vocals & harmonies swim amongst electronic beats & sound effects; all this whilst fusing her sound with different genres enables her to reach a wider audience with her influential music.
