Los Angeles native Singer/Songwriter Desireé Estrada knew from an early age she wanted to pursue a career in music. Inspired by artists such as Lauryn Hill, Common, Selena, Sade and Boys II Men, she started singing at her church and school choir. Desiree's professional career took off in 2009 when she joined the girl group "Kemistrie". Managed by Randy Hankins and Chris Roker, the group quickly gained momentum performing 4-5 times a week throughout Southern California. In July 2010, Desiree and the group appeared live on the nationally televised show B.E.T. 106 & Park "Wild Out Wednesdays." Based on their outstanding performance, the group appeared on the show once again in August 2010 where they were voted as "All Star WInners" and won $5,000. Their single "Love Me Hate Me" was then placed on the televised radio show "Music Choice." With all the exposure, Desiree had the pleasure of working alongside many other artists such as California Swag District, The Rejects, YG, Colbie O Donis, Audio Push, Mann, to name a few.
In July of 2011, Desiree officially announced she was going solo. Soon after she began working on her first album with songwriter/producer Leticia Ascencio (who has worked with Nicole Scherzinger, Rigo Luna, Christian Chavez, Christopher Uckermann and many others). Covering a range of urban latin styles (from bachata to acoustic), Desiree's album "Kween Dez" will feature collaborations with many well-known songwriters including John Scott, Louis Harden, Gilde Flores, Javier Ceja, Jeeve, and Claudia Brandt.
Although Desiree's album won't be released until spring 2012, the young singer will make her official solo debut in November 2011 with the release of a Christmas single entitled "Cada dia es Navidad.” Desiree will be promoting the single at the 12th Annual Latin Grammy celebration in Las Vegas.
