Daniella was born in Barranquilla, Colombia to a humble family. As a young girl, her dream was to grow up and become a professional singer, performing artist and voice instructor. Classically educated and trained, Daniella’s vocal range extends beyond four octaves as a Coloratura Soprano. She sings in Italian, French, Portuguese, Spanish, English, and Japanese.
Daniella received her degree in music from the EMMAS Music Academy in Barranquilla, Colombia. There, she studied voice, composition, harmony, music theory, music history, and performance. After graduating, she took further vocal coaching, ballet, and jazz studies at the Broadway Dance Center in Manhattan, NY. During this time, Daniella also studied classical guitar, the transverse flute, and she also took up the Ocarina. After her time in NYC, she returned to Colombia to complete her degree at the University Reformada in Barranquilla and that was followed by her move to the U.S.
Daniella was the First Place Winner of the “George Gershwin International Music Competition” in Brooklyn, New York, and auditioned for “America’s Got Talent” on NBC Television to an audience of 11 million viewers and was selected to compete all the way to the semi- finals. Her final “Live” concert performance on “America’s Got Talent” was televised to an audience of 16 million viewers. Daniella has also had the great fortune of performing for Princess Hitachi in Tokyo, Japan, at the Mishima University of Japan, and in Sao Paulo, Brazil, for the “Facebook Women’s Leadership Organization”. She’s also performed in Venezuela, Mexico, New York, Orlando, Los Angeles, Missouri, Tampa, and Miami. Daniella has had the opportunity to perform with numerous artists, including the legendary tenor Jose Carreras, The Bond Quartet, Il Volo, jazz flautist virtuoso Nestor Torres, and the sensational Andrea Bocelli.
Most recently, Daniella played the lead role of Eva Peron in the Andrew Lloyd Weber / Tim Rice musical “Evita” at the Broadway affiliated Wick Theatre in Boca Raton, FL.
Teaching students through the mixed methods that she promotes is one of Daniella’s many passions. She enables the most authentic sound from her students and creates more longevity in their vocal cords' health through the integration of Speech Level Singing (SLS) by the prestigious pop vocal coach Seth Riggs, along with the Bel Canto vocal method developed by the forever esteemed Mathilde Marchesi.
