Early career[edit]

Paige performed competitively with the a Dance Attack! team in Mountain View, California. She won such dance titles such as Most Outstanding Jr. Dancer, The Face of an Angel, and Most likely to Become a Star.[2]

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

Paige began singing at the age of 5. She performed in musical theatre, including with The Children's Musical Theater San Jose.[1] At the age of 17, she received the "Outstanding Bay Area High School Actress" award from American Musical Theatre of San Jose for her performance as Ariel in the musical Footloose.[4]

Music career[edit]

At the age of 17, 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 opened 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. She was added to Flipsyde; the group recorded State of Survival, and made two music videos ("When It Was Good"[6] and "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 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] Paige performed the song with Space Cowboy as an opening act for LMFAO (group) and Far East Movement on the Party Rock Tour.[5][11]
