Three GracesThree Graces (Joy Kabanuck, Kelly Levesque and Sara Gettelfinger) released their self-titled debut album March 4th on Decca Records. While it is not uncommon for solo artists to work in various genres of music during the course of their career it's a much rarer occurrence to find three individual artists with this commonality looking to collaborate on a higher level. The stunning and talented new trio, Three Graces, effectively blends their musical backgrounds in Opera, Pop and Broadway to form a new sound that resonates with any music enthusiast.

The performances on their debut album are nothing less than breathtaking, incorporating spectacular harmonies and unforgettable melodies. Each vocalist brings the best of their musical backgrounds to the forefront, as they tackle quality repertoire in multiple languages, some which they co-wrote themselves. Surrounded by brilliant production, Three Graces have created an album that will be a favorite for fans of all genres for years to come.

Joy Kabanuck starred in Baz Luhrmann's Broadway production of La Boheme. She garnered the highly coveted role of Mimi, to the adoration of fans and critics alike. Joy played the lead role of Fiordiligi in Mozart's Cosi fan Tutte and the title role in Donizetti's Betly, as well as roles in Faust, Lucia di Lammermoor and La Traviata. Joy was a Los Angeles District finalist in the New York Metropolitan Opera Council auditions and a finalist in the Los Angeles Artist of the Future competition.

Kelly Levesque (pronounced Le-Vek) recently shared the stage with the talented Andrea Bocelli during his last US tour. Kelly has also had the opportunity to duet with such artists as Josh Groban, Russell Watson and Vittorio Grigolo. On the production side, Kelly is no stranger to working with Grammy Award-winning producers and songwriters including David Foster, Diane Warren and the Neptunes. Kelly was also featured on the soundtrack of the Julia Roberts film, America's Sweethearts.
