ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Born in Cairo, Egypt, and named after a famous Egyptian Singer/Dancer, Nelly’s ability to attract others to her talents revealed themselves at an early age. Whereas other children might have been timid or reserved in early childhood, Nelly was a competitive gymnast for seven years, studied Jazz, Ballet, Modern, and Hip Hop dance, and was an active member in the touring musical of the Young Americans. Nelly was never the type to be inhibited. Her early motivations and ambitions would later set the stage for her burgeoning career to pursue her passion as a performer and singer.
At the young age of 15, she was cast as a lead dancer “Mimi” in Guys and Dolls at Saddleback Civic Light Opera. For the next 10 years Nelly went on to perform across Southern California in musicals such as, Once on this Island, playing the part of “Erzulie”, in West Side Story as “Consuelo”, as the infamous “Cha Cha” in Grease and in the Ovation Award winning run of Miss Saigon.
While continuing to perform, Nelly attended California State Polytechnic University in Pomona, CA graduating with a Civil Engineering Degree and satisfying another passion of hers, Nelly’s academic career. Recognizing the shortage of women in this field, she was determined to be atypical. Simultaneously, the performer in her led her to be active in the Soul Music Ensemble and Modern Dance Productions on campus. Being a part of the Soul Music Ensemble allowed her to perform various Jazz standards, Traditional R & B and her own original recordings at various events like the Black Chamber of Commerce celebrations and Benefit concerts across Southern California.
Today, this triple threat artist is happily married to her husband Joseph P. Gerges and is performing in musicals and private events across California. Utilizing her multi- octave vocal range and incorporating Jazz, R&B, Soul and Pop, Nelly has recorded for, educational music workbooks, other independent artists and has performed in television as a voice over actress for animation. Nelly’s first complete debut album “A Heartfelt Christmas” is being released in Nov 2008. This album introduces Nelly to the world in an inspirational and wide-ranging musical arrangement celebrating the Christmas season.
Nelly feels that God has blessed her by allowing her to explore and succeed in anything she desires. Nelly states, “God has given me the determination and ability to pursue my passion and true love; singing. He has allowed me the opportunity and strength to truly perform, and for this gift I am eternally grateful.”
