I’m not ashamed to admit it that the three Hale boys liked New Kids On The Block. In our defense, NKOTB were in their prime when we were 3, 5, and 7 years old. It’s not like our music selection was much of our choice when our parents were also forcing us to listen to Richard Marx, Wilson Phillips, Atlantic Starr, and pre-Bobby Brown Whitney Houston. If you had to Google any of those names, there is a generational gap.
In my teen years, the new boy band craze met socially demanding scorn and disdain. Not many 15-year-olds of the late ’90s were willing to admit their acceptance of N*SYNC or the Backstreet Boys. I apologize if I left out those other lower-tier groups, like 98 Degrees.
I guess what I am trying to say is that I have never technically jumped on the group band craze. However, I’ll proudly endorse the Cimorelli Sisters.
Originally from Southern California, the six sisters have become YouTube stars and Instagram Influencers. They have a unique style of covering well-known songs while introducing meaningful originals.
We brought them on the podcast since they bring a unique layer of faith to their craft. Raised Roman Catholic, the sisters have infused a unique worldview into the way they approach their careers. Notably, this is best illustrated in their new book, Believe in You: Big Sister Stories and Advice on Living Your Best Life.
