Chantelle Paige (born February 3, 1988) is an American singer-songwriter and an actress. She is a former member of the R&B/rap group Flipsyde.

Early life[edit]

Chantelle Paige was born in Los Gatos, California. Chantelle was home schooled in grade school and attended Valley Christian High School (San Jose, California), graduating with a 4.2 GPA.[1] She was a JV Cheerleader her freshman year and co-captain of the JV Girls Tennis Team her sophomore year.[citation needed] Her classmates voted her "Senior That is Most Likely to be on the Cover of a Magazine.”[citation needed]

Early career[edit]

Chantelle grew up singing, dancing and acting. She performed competitively with the award winning Dance Attack! team in Mountain View, California, under the direction of Sioux Lehner (Nick Lazzarini, winner of So You Think You Can Dance (Season 1), and Alessandra Torresani of Caprica (TV series) grew up on the same team). Chantelle won several convention scholarships and dance titles such as Most Outstanding Jr. Dancer, The Face of an Angel, and Most likely to Become a Star.[2]

Paige was a model/actress who, since the age of 3, was seen on magazine covers and billboards. Her photos were also used on many toy boxes such as Barbie, Polly Pocket, Britney Spears Doll products and Pound Puppies. When she was 8, a Chantelle doll and book series were made in her name and image for a popular upscale children's catalog (Storybook Heirlooms) which she modeled for (for over ten years).[3]

Paige began singing at the age of 5 at the suggestion of her first dance teacher, Alyson Meador. She subsequently performed in 18 different musical theatre performances and had many lead roles with The Children's Musical Theater San Jose.[1] At the age of 17, Chantelle achieved the "Outstanding Bay Area High School Actress" award from American Musical Theatre of San Jose for her role (Ariel) in the musical Footloose.[4]

Music career[edit]

At the age of 17, Chantelle Paige posted a track on MySpace that became a top played song on the site overnight. Due to her continued MySpace popularity as an unsigned artist, she went on to open for The Pussycat Dolls, Robin Thicke, Pretty Ricky, Tommy Lee and Bobby Valentino.[5] At the age of 19, Paige was signed to Interscope/Cherrytree Records by Martin Kierszenbaum (whose biggest success has been Lady Gaga ). Paige was added to Flipsyde and the group recorded State of Survival, and made two music videos ("When It Was Good"[6]& "A Change")[7]). A track from the State of Survival album, "Champion", was chosen as a theme song for the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, China, as well as the primary song for EA Sports NBA Live 09 video game.[8] In 2009, Flipsyde made a cameo in Lady Gaga's JUST DANCE music video and Chantelle Paige was featured as the love interest in the music video, "I Wanna Touch You" (Colby O'Donis).[9] As a member of Flipsdye, Chantelle toured in Europe with Sarah Connor and shared the stage in America with Akon, Ciara, N.E.R.D., Kevin Rudolf, T.I., and Ludacris. After the group was dropped by the record label, Paige continued as a solo artist, and in 2009 she recorded the song "Devastated" with Space Cowboy and Martin Kierszenbaum (Cherry Cherry Boom Boom).[10] Chantelle performed the song with Space Cowboy as an opening act for LMFAO (group) and Far East Movement on the Party Rock Tour.[5][11]
