Nicole Marie Acree is a multi-gifted artist from Chicago, Illinois, born September 21, 1992. She started writing at the early age of 10, but it wouldn't be until 2 years later when she'd discover her true passion for music. Growing up she was a DIE-HARD Aaliyah fan, and because of her borderline obsession over the late entertainer, friends nicknamed her Nicole Aaliyah. At 17, looking to change her stage name from Slick Nic, another childhood nickname, to something more universally appealing, she revisited the previous moniker, and with a twist, she soon became Aaliyah Nicole.
The current C.E.O. of multimedia-based company, Superstar Dream Entertainment, has a style described as a sweet love encounter between hip-hop and neo-soul. This has led her to identify herself as a 'HipHop Soul' artist. She highlights entertainers such as Aaliyah, Missy Elliot, Ne-Yo, J. Cole, Lyfe Jennings, John Legend and Lauryn Hill as just a few of her many influences.
Aaliyah Nicole has had the great pleasure of opening for Raheem DeVaughn, Curt Chambers, and Ken Ford. In addition she has participated as a spoken word artist in two productions spearheaded by the late Tommy Ford (Martin - TV Show). After her three-year musical hiatus, Aaliyah Nicole has returned on a mission – now taking full control of her career and releasing new music written, produced, mixed and mastered by herself.
Aside from music, the 2015 Magna Cum Laude graduate of Clark Atlanta University has collectively garnered over millions of views on Facebook. Although it was mostly her hilarious "I'm Concerned" reaction videos that has grown her social media platform from 3,500 to over 40,000 followers, in just a little over a year, Aaliyah Nicole is committed to being viewed as more than "just another Facebook comedian", which is why the C.E.O. is determined to continuously work hard to one day become a heavy-hitter in the very broad world of entertainment.
