With her mother being a traveling DJ, the music industry has always been a part of new artist Cherae Leri’s life.

Leri started singing as a young girl in front of anyone who would listen: from friends and family to local events and weddings, making it clear she had a voice and was going to be heard. Her early influences were artists such as Patti Labelle, Leela James, and Erykah Badu, with Ms. Badu later becoming her mentor.

Although her focus shifted at one point into the world of modeling where she first made a name for herself, Leri never abandoned her music roots and in 2015 relocated to Atlanta to focus on her musical career.

Since her move Leri’s been working on her album No Correlation, releasing previous single “Mirage” and now her latest single, “Just Bizness.”

Combining elements of neo-soul, pop, jazz and R&B, “Just Bizness” (produced by Mello) is another example of how Leri takes elements of past musical influences and adds her own modern take. She isn’t playing the damsel in distress or the victim, but rather the woman who’s about her business: too smart for the games or manipulation. - Kelly Hite

Lately lots of great people and things have emerged from the Midwestern “Show Me State” of Missouri, among the biggest are Saint Louis’s Rapper Nelly and Ms. Robbie’s Sweetie Pie’s along with some great BBQ. Well here is something else sweet and spicy and also from Missouri Cherae Leri. Cherae Leri started performing music at a very early age being born to a Mother who was also a traveling DJ. The soulful pop vocalist literally entered the world singing. Whether it was on the road with her Mother or just in front of the family Cherae always found a stage to be on. She would perform at the Family Reunions, Weddings, Church or any other type of function that she could grab a microphone. Being around the music industry so young allowed Cherae to be influenced by some of the more prominent Artists like Patti Labelle, Leela James and Erykah Badu, whom she met with her mother while attending the Tom Joyner Morning Show at the age of 12. Ms. Badu also encouraged Cherae and her Mother to move to the Houston area where she also pursued a modeling career. Although her claim to fame might have been through the modeling world Cherae never stopped working on her music. Cherae Leri has had a chance to work with Artists like blues soul sensations such as Kenne Wayne, Trudy Lynn, and Steve Krase. Working with these types of Musicians and Artists has been a humbling experience for the young soulful vocalist. Moving forward to 2015 Cherae Leri has moved to Atlanta, Georgia where she is set to release her new single “Mirage” through major online stores. Cherae's new music video for "Mirage" was released on June 24, 2015 and can now be seen on Vevo, YouTube, Yahoo Screen and Muzu. She is currently interviewing with radio stations, magazines and music blogs. Cherae Leri has set the tone for her music career and looks forward to a great future. -

Cherae Leri' 2015

Her roots, which stem from a modelling background, has placed her in the ideal position with respect to the entertainment industry. Her journey thus far has enabled her to meet celebrities at an enormous pace.
“Cherae’s style of music fits best in the 90’s era of R&B, but overall forever remains multi-talented in many styles. Although her claim to fame might have been through the modelling industry, Cherae is definitely a singer who models and not the other way around. Cherae Leri’ is a perfect combination of Neo, Soul, Pop, Jazz and R&B.”, said her management at ET Management International.
