Chéri Yielle is a Haitian-American singer and songwriter hailing from Long Island, New York. Impacted heavily by the melodic voices of Sade, Alicia Keys, and Lauryn Hill, Chéri boasts a dynamic, contemporary Pop/R&B sound. Her music is recognized for the high-rise quality of her production, truthful lyrics, and soothing formula of reverb, harmony, and warm vocal performance. Chéri’s vast range of influences, along with her emotionally-charged writing and vocal performance, come together to create a distinct style that is naturally and freely her own.
In the beginning of 2018, following the loss of her beloved father to leukemia and the subsequent ill-health of her mother, Chéri independently released her first single, “Save My Soul”. The work chronicles Chéri’s own emotional journey as she learns to traverse the chaos and confusion of the world through the lens of grief and healing. In 2019, Chéri released “Come Home” as her second single. Equally close to her heart, the simplistic lyrics and enticing visuals unveil the heart on her sleeve. While songwriting and producing her own instrumentals, Chéri speaks her truth to her audience directly. Her first EP, titled “Surrender”, was released on her father’s birthday: June 27, 2019.
