Cecilia (real name Cecilia Knutsen) is a 38 year old Classical/New Age crossover-artist from Harstad in Northern Norway. She has had an interest for music all her life. As a 9-year-old she saw the opera "Aida" on TV, and wanted to become an opera singer. She has had 6 years of classical training from Music Conservatories in Norway, Denmark and Germany, passing demanding music exams with flying colours. From early on it was obvious that this was a young woman with an incredible soprano-voice and Cecilia’s unique crystal clear voice reaches in fact 3 octaves, singing everything from Classical to New Age to Pop.

She has released 6 albums, 2 by Universal Music, been singing worldwide, and sold several hundred thousand albums in total. Paradoxically, she has been least successful in her homeland Norway, almost unknown there in many music-circles, but has achieved much greater success in Classical/New Age-circles in the USA and elsewhere in the world. Her career started in 1994 when she released her first album called "Voice of the Feminine Spirit". The album sold very well many places and even went Gold in Australia, which was the incentive for Cecilia to go on an Australian tour where she sang for 30.000 in the 5 biggest cities there.

The music on Cecilia's second album "Voice of Violet 19", released on most continents in 1997, was a collaboration between producer and composer David Lord and lyricist Stuart Wilde. Universal Music released her third album "Inner Harmony" in 1999 (Mercury). She then did promotion in Japan, and toured countries like England, Germany, Sweden, Finland and the USA. She performed at the Universal Wisdom Foundation event with Al Di Meola at Miami Arena in March 1998 and at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles.

During the summer of 1999 Cecilia moved to Los Angeles. She signed an agreement with Northern Light Music to develop her music. While working on her music, Cecilia gave concerts in the USA. In 2001 Northern Light Music released her Christmas album "Let There Be Peace On Earth" while in February 2002 came a new single "My Beloved", which was co-written by Cecilia. In April 2002 Cecilia moved from Los Angeles to New York, and continued to work on her style and new songs with Art Labriola.

She also got a new singing teacher, Dr. William Riley, who is also the singing teacher for famous stars like Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, and Faith Hill. Cecilia's music has been used in TV series, documentaries, and videos in America and Asia, and on compilation albums (including Classical releases with world-famous Opera-stars) worldwide. In 2003 a “Best of Cecilia”-album was released in Europe and the USA, an album with the most treasured songs from her first 3 albums.

And then in January 2006, after a temporary break from the world of music, Cecilia returned with the release of her latest album-CD “The Healing Voice” which consisted for the main part of previously unreleased material and Latin Mass-texts, chants and hymns with new music and lyrics written especially for Cecilia by Daniela Angermann, Art Labriola and Michael Hoppè. The classical style melodies woven into an athmospheric tapestry of sound by soft Gregorian-type chants and Cecilia’s crystal-clear voice are haunting in their beauty, song/hymn called “Ave” (words & lyrics by Daniela Angermann). Cecilia’s voice pierces the stillness in beautiful song, she is like an Angel or a Queen of the Elves, an immortal and sacred being, as she invites us into her magical world of sound and beauty.
