About Stacie Orrico ~
At just seventeen years old, R&B/Pop artist Stacie Orrico has received very high acclaim for her two albums and her ability to reach and minister to both Christian and secular fans. Her energetic and mature sound even caught the attention of pop sensation Destiny's Child who asked Stacie Orrico to be their opening act in 2001. Stacie's sound most closely resembles Britney Spears, ZOEgirl, Destiny's Child, and No Doubt.

Although music was a part of Stacie's life growing up, she never intended to pursue it as a career. That all changed in 1998 when she was twelve years old and won a talent contest she had entered. One of the judges happened to be "in the business" and snapped her up as soon as he could. Two years later, Orrico's debut, Genuine, was released and entered the Billboard Heatseekers chart at #1. The album went on to sell over 500,000 copies and was certified gold. Stacie Orrico was an impressive talent and one both critics and audiences went wild over.

Three years passed before Stacie Orrico released her self-titled second album. The delay was due to a partnership that formed between Virgin Records and ForeFront Records. Virgin now markets her album to the mainstream and ForeFront to the Christian Market.

Her album proved to be well worth the wait, though, and has received much recognition and success. Stacie co-wrote 8 of the 12 songs and feels that the whole album is more agressive and soulful than her last. While a few of the songs are geared more toward a mainstream audience, most are about faith and spiritual issues. Songs such as "Security" and "Bounce Back" talk of God's unfailing love and the good news of His boundless grace. Stacie may be labled as a teen pop artist, but the maturity and subject matter of her songs allow even adults to appreciate her sound.

Stacie enjoys writing about things she deals with, worries about or wonders about. Stacie Orrico writes about growing up, her family, guys, and Christ's goodness in her life. Her influences include Lauryn Hill, Whitney Houston, and Ella Fitzgerald.
