Rwandese Singer Corneille signs to Motown + shoutouts!
Cornielle Nyungura is a singer whose music I have been exposed to for a while ,so when I read in vibe magazine and Uptown mag that he has been signed to Motown Records,which is the same record company that Akon is signed to,I was really happy because now his music will have an outlet in the us.He usually sings in french,but has produced an english album called the "Birth of Corneilious" which came out last month .He is rwandese and the 32 year old is ready to become a household name in the us ,which is probably the few countries where he is not known.
I asked my bestfriend Tresor for an opinion on Corneille and here's what he had to say "I like Corneill'e music because i believe he sings with his heart. in way he shares his secret garden and he does it with passion. His lyrics express a lot of pain but i think that's what makes it so intense."See,Its not just me.lol
Check out his interview with Vibe magazine here
He also has a mention in Uptown magazine's february issue ,But I can't find the link to that.Check out a video of his below and you can see more of him on youtube ,and if you love his music,get his cd in stores .This is one of my fave english songs of his so check it out.Enjoy!
SHOUTOUT TO ALL MY RWANDESE FRIENDS NIKITA,BRENDA,CN AND EVERYONE ELSE!
CORNEILLE-TOO MUCH OF EVERYTHING.
