Cecilia grew up in the small town of Harstad, in Norway in the Arctic Circle, the ’land of the midnight sun’. She wanted to become an opera singer after seeing a television broadcast of the opera Aida, when she was 9 years old. Her graduation marks from the Conservatory of Music in Oslo, Norway, were (extremely rare) perfect scores. She studied for 6 years in conservatories in Norway, Denmark and Germany.
She then moved to New York to study with Oren Brown, a vocal coach renowned to help a singer ’discover their natural voice’. In April 2002, upon Luciano Pavarotti’s suggestion and referral, she began to study with Dr. William Riley, coach of Celine Dion, and worked with Pavarotti and Andrea Bocelli, and even Bill Clinton.
Cecilia has toured with Hay House published authors, such as Dr. Wayne Dyer, Dr. Deepak Chopra, Louise Hay,Marianne Williamson and Stuart Wilde, and performed in Norway, Japan, England, Germany, Sweden, Denmark, Finland and the United States. She has performed at large venues including the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles and the Miami Arena, Miami, Florida.
She was discovered in 1994 by the British writer Stuart Wilde, who was behind her first two albums, Voice of the Feminine Spirit and Voice of Violet 19.
Cecilia opened the new millennium by singing at the Deepak Chopra Millennium event, where His Holiness the Dalai Lama gave a speech. She sang at the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympics, where she also performed a concert at the World of Ice, and sang for the Crown Prince, Crown Princess and King of Norway.
