Singer/songwriter Isabella Chacon, a Junior at Centennial, had a tremendous show of talent at the Daily Grind Cafe Saturday night. This was Isabella’s fifth live performance, and her second at the Daily Grind.
“After I played my first gig at the grind for Christmas last year, I stayed in touch…we’ve been planning this for a while.” An active member of Centennial’s scholar choir for her second year, she also has had vocal lessons once a week since the 6th grade. When asked what artists she considers an inspiration Isabella responded, “Amy Winehouse,” and explained that her music has always sent a very strong message. Music has always been a component of her life as she started playing music at a young age. “My mom always said, I was six and watching the Macy’s Day Parade listening to ‘A Thousand Mile’ by Vanessa Carlton and I just lit up. Music became a part of my everyday life that’s when she put me in piano and it kinda all just took off from there.”
With experience performing for a crowd, not only as an artist but as a dancer as well, she has a few words of advice for other students that are interested in being on stage, “Being nervous is the best part of performing so never let fear or nerves be what’s keeping you from doing it, because those are things that push you to be a better performer.”
The show itself had a great turn out, as a sizable crowd filled the cafe, with friends and family enjoying coffee, food, laughs, and the genuinely beautiful voice of Miss Bella Chacon. Many Centennial students made an appearance Saturday evening to show their peer support, which was much appreciated by Bella, “I’m extremely lucky to have the support of Centennial High School whether it’s singing the National Anthem at sporting events or it’s the support outside of school from my friends.”
