(ChayNelle) Channelle Hylton-Taylor has been studying performing arts since the age of 3. As a childChayNelle use to dream of success on stage whether as a dancer, singer, rapper, or musician. This lead her mother to embark upon making sure her daughter got the best of the best training she could offer. As a single parent it was often hard, but as ChayNelle grew technically and creatively, the benefits seem to be endless and it was evident she was definitely in the best suited industry to compliment her aspirations and dreams. After her secondary education at ‘The Selly Park
Technology College for Girls’ , ChayNelle auditioned and gained a place at ‘Sutton Coldfield College’ where she did her BTEC National Diploma in Performing Arts, and then eventually winning a place within the top 60 out of 5,000 applicants at The Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts, training in modern, jazz, ballet, tap, musical theatre, singing and acting. After an intensive year of training
Channelle went on to pursue a Performing Arts Degree at the University of Bedfordshire and then on to Sir Paul Macartney’s ‘Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts’ (LIPA) completing a Post Graduate
Certificate in Dance Theatre Practice. ChayNelle has been blessed throughout her life to work with children within schools and churches teaching dance, as well as putting on her own workshops, to music videos and concerts working with a variety of people such as Boyzone, Westlife, Justin Timberlake’s choreographers, etc and much much more.
It was from the age of 15 onwards ChayNelle Discovered a real talent for poetry, writing lyrics and song writing. Often having hopes and dreams to be a great MC like ‘Miss Dynamite’ and the ‘So Solid Crew’. ChayNelle said “I just loved Dynamite, she was like a breath of fresh air and i loved her ability to MC and express herself whilst still looking very femmine in a heavily male dominated industry”.
This encouraged ChayNelle to continue to write lyrics and poetry until one day at a studio ‘messing around’ a producer friend ‘Mak Floss’ heard her, and was intrigued by her ‘quirky’ and very different style. Since then ChayNelle has never looked back. “My life now consists of Studio and making music leading up to the The Exit festival in Serbia. I will be performing out there and it’s a really big deal.
Want to make sure everything is perfect and that my fans and supporters are happy. I just hope and pray I can do them justice”. ChayNelle has been performing for the past consecutive 3 years at europe’s best festival 2013, the EXIT Festival! Also ChayNelle will be embarking on 2face’s world tour 2014.
