Meet Cimorelli, the breakout music group dominating social media

For Cimorelli, music isn't just their career, it's their way of life. The musical group, made up by Christina, Katherine, Lisa, Amy, Lauren, and Dani, have been performing and singing ever since they can remember. Soon the six sisters decided to take their act, which is best known for its signature a cappella arrangements of hit pop songs, to the internet. The rest was history.

Over 913 million video views and a few million YouTube fans later and Cimorelli has become one of the most sought-after music groups on the world wide web. And with multiple acclaimed EPs under their belt and a fan-favorite new series on go90 titled "Life As Cimorelli," they're also solidifying their position as one of the top acts across mainstream media.

So if you haven't heard their flawless harmonies or been exposed to their larger-than-life personalities, we think it's time for a change. We recently sat down with the six-piece to talk about what life was like growing up in such a musical family, how each of them fell in love with music, and more!

What is it like being part of a musical group of sisters?
Katherine: I think that it's really special because we have this sibling synchronicity that's unique and you don't find that often in bands because they don't grow up with each other. But we did, so we're very much in sync and we're connected at the brain. It's really cool and unique dynamic. Plus, our voices blend really well.

What is the best and worst part in working together as sisters?
Lisa: Thee best part is that we communicate so openly and if have problems we just talk them out and fix them. But the worst part is also that we communicate so openly, so it can get harsh sometimes. But we work through it, so it's good. It's just tricky at some times since we don't really hold back.

How did each one of you fall in love with music?
Christina: Our parents both loved music so I feel like I just always loved listening to it. I remember when I was younger listening to the Sacramento pop station all the time on the radio. I would listen to NSYNC and Britney Spears and that's how I fell in love. I was excited every time a new song would play.

Lauren: I feel like since I was born there's always been music and everyone was always singing. So I just thought, "Okay, this is what life is; you just have to love music." I can't remember a time in my life where I wasn't obsessed with it.

Dani: I remember when I was nine or maybe even younger than that, I got an iPod and it was the best day of my life. I always wanted to listen to my own music by myself and jam out to Big Time Rush. And there used to be days where I listened to music all day, every day. It's just my favorite thing ever.

Katherine: I'm 24 now and I feel like I grew up in a different generation of music where I would listen to the radio on my Walkman and write down the top 9 songs every night. In my mid to late teens, I started to get really tired of listening to the same songs on the radio over and over again and that was around the time I got a MySpace. So I realized there was all this music underground that people were listening to and it was really cool. I was like, "I want to find this music!" I would spend hours hunting for new songs and I really appreciated up and coming artists. I've been in that space since I was a teenager. And I feel like music tastes can define so much about you and can be such a bonding experience between you and someone else. It becomes such a large part of who you are.

Amy: I literally since I was born, everyone was always listening to music. My mom and dad also have such different music tastses, so my music taste is very eclectic. When we were little, we would dance around to 80s pop all the time. And when I was 10 I would turn up Skye Sweetnam's "Tangled Up in Me" sing into the vacuum cleaner because I was that short. It was the perfect height for a microphone. And then I graduated to a tripod and would sing things to a tripod everyday.

Lisa: It's not really a conscious thing for me and it's not something that I think about since I don't really know anything else I feel like it's just always been part of my life. It's always just been there.

What was it like for you all to make a show with go90?
Dani: Making the show was really fun; I loved filming. The crew was really nice and we got to know them really well. It was our best filming experience ever.

Lauren: For me it was challenging since I'm naturally a reserved person so it was weird for me to put my personality out there. But I was really happy with how it came out.

You obviously have done a lot of covers on YouTube. Do you have a favorite?
Dani: I love our cover of "Payphone" by Maroon 5.

Christina: I really liked our cover of "NO" by Meghan Trainor since we had a whole song and dance for it. It was really fun and we did it in the middle of the street and the video came out great.

Katherine: Our cover of "Boom Clap" was so good! We had war paint on for it too.

Lauren: My favorite was "You and I" by Lady Gaga since the arrangement of it was so good.

Amy: I think my favorite was "I Won't Give Up" by Jason Mraz. That arrangement was amazing.

Have you all talked about who would be your dream music collaboration?
Christina: Yes! For all of us it's country artists at this point. But there are a lot of country artists we'd love to work with, like Sam Hunt, Luke Bryan, Brett Eldredge. They would be so cool to work with.
