Lael Summer (laelsummer.com) is an expressive and sultry singer/songwriter who brings
a fresh pop twist to classic soul. Born and raised in NYC, Lael's love of music apparent was
early on. By the age of 2 she could sing every song from the Sound of Music; by age 10 she was
taking voice lessons and had her first showcase where she brought the entire audience to tears
with her rendition of Christina Aguilera's ‘Beautiful.' At 14, she opened for Jon Anderson of
Yes at B.B. King's singing Cat Steven's ‘Peace Train.'
Currently Lael is a senior in The University of Southern California's elite Popular Music program.
In her freshman year she opened for Gary Sinise's Lt. Dan Band with a smoldering version of
Sly's ‘Thank You' and Joplin's ‘Piece of My Heart.'
Lael also performed in Tomás Doncker's show, Power of the Trinity, a multi-media extravaganza
about the life of Haile Selassie, as part of NYC's 2012 Summerstage Concert Series in Central
Park. Her song, ‘The Good Fight' is spearheading performance artist, Marla Mase's, ImPerfect
Project, a multi-tiered campaign designed to raise awareness about eating disorders and promote
self-esteem and empowerment through the performing arts.
Her cover of the Hall and Oate's tune ‘Do What You Want, Be What You Are' was picked as the
buzz track to watch out for by the KingsOfAR.com
