Minneapolis – One hot summer evening a young man on the verge of superstardom visited the Elks Clug to check out a local band that had recently begun making waves. He enjoyed the band, but was immediately taken by its teenage girl singer. Astonished by her big voice and what he would later call her “star quality”, he vowed on the spot to help take her career to new heights. The young man is now known the world over as Prince. The girl singer: SueAnn Carwell. The rest, as they say, is show business history.
That serendipitous introduction led a 17 year old Carwell to a major recording contract with Warner Bros.– and later MCA Records– producing three BillboardÂ® Hot 100 albums and the Gold singer, 7 Days, 7 Nights.`
Carwell’s second act began just as auspiciously. An inpromptu introduction to songwriter Diane Warren ended with an invitation to arrange background vocals for a new David Foster produced Celine Dion song entitled Because You Loved Me. More than two million copies of the song was sold, and Carwell would go on to establish herself as pop music’s preeminent session vocalist and arranger.
It seems that Carwell has worked with nearly every major act across Pop, Jazz, Country and R&B. Se is equally at home in the recording studio and on a live stage. As a vocalist, songwriter and arranger, her work may be heard of film soundtracks, including: Moulin Rouge, Beverly Hills Cop 2, The Wedding Planner, Road to El Dorado and Coyote Ugly.
Having sold millions of records and performed on stages around the world, Carwell continues to make original music and collaborate with some of the biggest names in the industry.
