Nov. 19, 2006 – Los Angeles, CA – November 19, 2006 – Formerly, one of the nineteen female housemates on MTV’s, “Making the Band III” Celeste officially launches her career as a solo artist, commemorated by a walk down the red carpet at the 34th Annual American Music Awards.
After her departure from MTV’s Making the Band III, Celeste spent just moments in disappointment but took solace in the fact that there is a certain formula required in order to make a pop group and her destiny is to showcase her soulful vocals and songwriting talent as a solo artist. “The staff told me that I was absolutely one of the best vocalists, I believe that they were looking for a group that emphasized choreographed dance performances rather than great vocal and writing ability which are my strengths as a recording artist. Not being chosen as part of the final five is definitely okay with me. I believe everything happens for a reason and my time is now.”
Currently, the vocally gifted singer/songwriter from Los Angeles prepares material for her upcoming album by working with Grammy nominated producer Damone Arnold of Dreemi Entertainment and writer/producer Tony Haynes whose songs are credited for selling over 70 million worldwide. In addition to collaborating with those music mavens, Celeste is ecstatic to be collaborating with one of the music industry’s top producers but plans to disclose the details of that relationship at a later date. A friend to many artists, Celeste will also be writing for Prince protégé, Tamar Davis.
During her November 21st American Music Awards, red carpet appearance, Celeste will be available for interviews and candid conversations about her experiences and future plans.

Celeste received her start as a full-fledged performer while working with super-producer, 7 Aurelius. During that time, Celeste’s mesmerizing vocals captured the attention of rapper JaRule. Soon, Celeste’s voice was featured on his hit record, “Murder Reigns” (or “The Reign”), one of the songs from his chart-topping album, “The Last Temptation.” Celeste’s voice and songwriting skills are also featured on “I Need A Man” the single from on Foxy Brown’s album, “The Fever.” After completing those projects, Celeste received a recording offer but rejected the deal due to personal conviction to stay true to herself and her craft. Rebuffing the notion of a “once in a lifetime opportunity,” Celeste remained determined to pursue her career on her own terms.
