Welcome to Sorela fan club:
Sisters D’ette and D’anna have been singing and entertaining for most of their lives, born in Albuquerque New Mexico. In 1997 the girls recorded “Si Quieres Verme Llorar” and “Eres Tu” under the name D’Girlz as they were called at the time. Both songs gained major regional air play. These two songs established their unique sound blending elements of R & B, Pop and Latin rhythms recorded in Spanish. Living in New Mexico the girls have performed and enjoyed recording traditional Spanish Mexican songs in ranchera, cumbia and ballad styles. In 2004 the girls looked to their Spanish and Italian ancestry for a new name. Written memoirs from their great great Italian grandparents showed the term Sorela when addressing their siblings. The two romantically entwined languages made for the perfect name “Sorela” which means “Sister”.
