The Beu Sisters

The Beu Sisters are a pop-rock girl group from the U.S. state of Florida, consisting of the sisters Candice (born 1975), Christie (born 1978) and Danielle (born 1987). Originally born and bred in New York City, the Beu Sisters were surrounded by classics of the Broadway stage early on. Their parents were both show business veterans and had performed in some of theater's greatest productions. The family moved to New Smyrna Beach, Florida, in 1988 and, by the end of the 1990s, they had formed an a cappella act. Desmond Child, a noted songwriter, noticed the sisters and helped them to sign a contract with S-Curve Records.

First albumEdit

In 2002, the Beu Sisters' first album, Decisions, was released. Nine of the thirteen tracks on the album were co-written by them. The album includes the lead single "I Was Only (Seventeen)", for which a music video was filmed. To promote their album, the Beu Sisters toured as the opening act on Kelly Clarkson and Clay Aiken's 2004 Independent Tour which spanned 32 cities.[1]

Soundtrack contributionsEdit

The Beu Sisters can also be heard on various soundtracks, including Disney productions: Ella Enchanted, Home on the Range, Disney Girlz Rock, Radio Disney Jingle Jams, Radio Disney Ultimate Jams, The Lizzie McGuire Movie soundtrack, and DisneyMania 2. They appeared on the Because of Winn-Dixie movie soundtrack and also contributed to the movie How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, featuring Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey, in 2003.

Looking aheadEdit

After their tour with Kelly Clarkson and Clay Aiken the tides shifted. The sisters were signed to an entertainment deal with Sony/Columbia Records, but delays led them, as a family, to the unanimous decision to return home to their seaside town and release themselves of all contractual obligations. This process took time and the sisters soon found themselves waiting tables again, teaching vocal lessons, gardening, cleaning homes, and performing locally. However, during these lean times, they also found themselves putting down roots, growing families, and cultivating a new vision for their creative dream.[1]

A new song, "What Do You Do in the Summer (When It's Raining?)", was released to radio in summer 2004.

On their own label, Beach Breakz Records, this Florida family has written, arranged, produced and recorded all songs from their upcoming compilation of 6 EP’s entitled A Collection of Beu-tiful Music. In 2012, the Beu Sisters (minus Jilaine) made a comeback to the music scene and released three EPs: “Beu-tiful” Volumes 1, 2 & 3. It has many music videos dedicated to the songs on the album, such as "Definition of a Lady" and "Everything Will be Alright" which can be seen on YouTube. These days, the sisters continue to perform as a trio and even go solo on occasion.[2]

Candice currently writes a monthly article for Static Live Magazine.
