Biography

Our inspirations flow from the universal one song of LOVE. Through ingenuity, peace, and unity, we hope to heal lives and touch hearts joyfully with the gift of music.”
~ Beu Sisters

Born into a musical family, Candice, Christie and Danielle Beu learned from an early age to appreciate and understand all aspects of the entertainment industry. The sisters, encouraged by their parents, Broadway veterans (“A Chorus Line”), steadily developed their collective and individual talents.

In 1988, the Beu family (parents and eight siblings) left the bright lights of New York City for the serene sounds of New Smyrna Beach, Florida. By the end of the ‘90s, the parents divorced and the sisters unified through music, performing on stage with their mother, opening for major artists like Billy Ray Cyrus and Bo Diddley. They soon came to the attention of Award-Winning Songwriter Desmond Child (Kiss, Bon Jovi, Aerosmith). He introduced them to Record Producer Steve Greenberg (Joss Stone, Jonas Brothers) and the sisters became the second act signed to S-Curve Records.
In 2002, their debut album “Decisions” was released and received rave reviews. Billboard Magazine wrote, “While the environment for instantly accessible melodic music is often hostile at top 40 radio these days, one must remain optimistic that true talent will rise to the top. THE BEU SISTERS demonstrate enormous versatility on their upcoming, DECISIONS. All involved should pop the champagne cork for an effort that radiates joy, humor, passion, and artful, unaffected singing. These gals are simply wonderful.”

As singers and songwriters, the sisters soon garnered numerous movie and television soundtracks: (Double Platinum Selling) “The Lizzie McGuire Movie Soundtrack”; “Home on the Range”; “How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days”; “Because of Winn Dixie”; “Ella Enchanted”; “Smallville”; “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”; “Gilmore Girls”; and, “Charmed.” Quickly becoming a Disney fan favorite, the sisters were featured on “The Disney Channel,” Disney’s 50th Anniversary Celebration at the Hollywood Bowl, “Disneymania II In Concert” (hosted by Raven Simone), and a multitude of Disney albums. They then expanded their existing fan base by opening for “American Idol” Alums Kelly Clarkson and Clay Aiken on a 32-city tour.

It was at this point in their blossoming career that the tides shifted. The sisters were signed to an entertainment deal with Sony/Columbia Records, but delays led them, as a family, to the unanimous decision to return home to their seaside town and release themselves of all contractual obligations. This process took time and the sisters soon found themselves waiting tables again, teaching vocal lessons, gardening, cleaning homes, and performing locally. However, during these lean times, they also found themselves putting down roots, growing families, and cultivating a new vision for their creative dream.

Today, the Beu Sisters are a self-contained trio, expressing a Pop/Urban sound that blends mystical melodies and affirmative recitations over neo-symphonic beats. The artistic rendering of the sisters' orchestral, 3 part harmony creates the dynamic foundation of this unique and refreshing musical experience. The first single and video, "Definition of a Lady," captures their playful journey of self-expression and creative empowerment with elegance, grace and beu-ty.

On their own label, Beach Breakz Records, this Florida family has written, arranged, produced and recorded all songs from their upcoming compilation of 6 EP's entitled A Collection of Beu-tiful Music. In this diverse collection, the Beu Sisters offer a variety of musical entrees to satisfy a variety of musical tastes. In Beu-tiful: Vol. I, II, & III, the EPs appear in their original form, flavor and content (with original artwork by Danielle Beu). However, Beu-tiful InVersions: Vol. I, II, & III, offers a little something different for the gourmet listener. The "InVersions" deliver a palette cleanser to the heavy beats served on the original 3 EPs. In this edition, every track has been masterfully stripped to the bare essentials, revealing the intricacies of harmony, select instrumentation and lyrical content within.

Lyrics

Definition Of A Lady

Written By: Candice Beu, Andre Mendoza

Bada dada dum~Bada dada dum
Bada dada dum~Bada dada dum
Bada dada dum~Bada dada dum
Bada dada dum~ da dum~da dum
Sometimes she dresses like a baby doll in dots and lace
Seen all clean and shiny, glossy lips on her face
She’s a curly girl (ahh)
with a tiny little waist
Sewed the bows to her heels and the garments to her
taste
Scan the place…..
lounging’ on the chaise
Is a lovely little lady in a long necklace
that wraps around
‘fore it hit’s the ground
A nifty, thrifty find in a thrift shop that she found
Turn around
Check these ladies up and down
Black French tips with sparkles on her gown
She’s a pretty clown
From her head to her toes
In a polka dotted tu-tu and a red afro
U know when u see 1
I am
So be 1
A Lady- a Lady
From New York to LA
From LA to NY
An L-A-D-Y
U know when u see 1
I am
So be 1
A Lady- a Lady
From New York to LA
From LA to NY
An L-A-D-Y
Mama Mia
Have you seen the Ballerina
In the rouge point shoes steppin’ outside of the Beamer
She’s not “meena”
But she’s not nice neither
Got the spice and sugar blood
The Bloody Mary's gives her fever
She’s the Diva
Doling out the hugs
In her long waist coat and her arm length gloves
Give her love
The turtledoves a “Ladybug”
A Queen Bee not a beggar
Reigns the Alpha - The Omega
She maintains
Sippin’ from the vine
Eatin’ strawberries just to pass the time
(From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/b/beu-sisters-lyrics/definition-of-a-lady-lyrics.html)
Pass the wine
Toast the host with fine glasses
Oh she never acts too crass
Even when she’s smackin (bleeeep)
She’s all class
From the top to the bottom
Dressed to the “T”
Baby - flaunt em if you got em
Ya gotta-ya gotta-ya gotta
Flaunt it if you got it
U know when u see 1
I am
So be 1
A Lady- a Lady
From New York to LA
From LA to NY
An L-A-D-Y
U know when u see 1
I am
So be 1
A Lady- a Lady
From New York to LA
From LA to NY
An L-A-D-Y
Lady-----------------------Lady---------------
La-ha-deee----eeeee
eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
Much Respect
To the girl who takes a chance
In her 4 inch heels dancing on top of the amps
She’s a vamp
No the lady’s not a tramp
She’s a pro
She’s a winner
She’s a saint
She’s a sinner
She’s the Queen of the quintessential

Even when she’s stripped down to the bare essentials
Not to mention
She’s got all the dimensions
She’s a “Mommy“, she’s a “Hottie”
Who the life of the party??
She’s alright
The girl can dance all night
Turn the dark into light
Fix the world up right
She’s a sight
and a psychedelic dream
If your with me baby girls let me hear you scream
U know when u see 1
I am
So be 1
A Lady- a Lady
From New York to LA
From LA to NY
An L-A-D-Y
U know when u see 1
I am
So be 1
A Lady- a Lady
From New York to LA
From LA to NY
An L-A-D-Y

On My Mind

Written By: Christie Beu, Danielle Beu, Andre Mendoza

Spoken:
It was always you
from the start
to begin with
Oooh Boy when I hear your name
From my ears into my brain
Can’t stop filter, refrain
Just wanna explain to everybody that you drive me insane
And I can’t lie about the way you make me feel inside
So if you want to caress me please do
Oooh Boy I’m so versatile
From my kicks up to my smile
Give you my digits to dial so we can reconcile
Promise I can make it worth your while
Cause I can’t hide how you make me feel deep inside
So if you want to caress me please do
Do you think of me
I’m always thinking about you
Do you dream of me
Oooh yes-I’m dreaming about you
Don’t you understand
Oh no I can’t live without you
Baby if you can’t read the signs
I’m letting you know that you’re on my mind
I think you know by now what I want you to do
Am I coming on too strong
Coming on a little too strong for you
Are you the kind of man who likes the chase
Never been that kind of girl
I’ve never been the kind of girl to waits
Find More lyrics at www.sweetslyrics.com
I just get too impatient
I wanna make or break it
Do things my own way
Those games I don’t play
We could be creating something so exhilarating
So stop debating, hesitating
Why would you wanna keep this girl waiting
Do you think of me
I’m always thinking about you
Do you dream of me
Oooh yes I’m dreaming about you
Don’t you understand
Oh no I can’t live without you
Baby if you can’t read the signs
I’m letting you know that you’re on my mind
I wonder if I’m ever on your mind
I wish that you would just give me the time
So that I could find out what lies behind those mysterious eyes
(x2)
Do you think of me
I’m always thinking about you
Do you dream of me
Oooh yes I’m dreaming about you
Don’t you understand
Oh no I can’t live without you
Baby if you can’t read the signs
I’m letting you know that you’re on my mind
(Spoken) Don’t even play
