A nurse takes care of us so we may attain or maintain good health, or we recover from illnesses. But what if a nurse does these things not by means of any scientific medications, but by her soothing angelic voice?



Yes indeed! Meet Marielle "Yelle" Castro, a 24-year old nurse and laser therapist by profession and a singing star written on her future.  She works at Dubai Medical Village in Jumeirah. She was introduced to me by my friend DJ John Luna of Pinas Music Zone via her Youtube videos.  Having to leave the home country and work here in Dubai did not stop Yelle from pursuing her first love.  She continuously honed her musical craft. Her own experiences contribute to her amazing songwriting style. “All my compositions are based on my tough experiences but I don’t focus on the negativity and instead, divert them to positive and hopeful thoughts,” she says.

She released two tracks, Bubble and Escape, on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon and opm2go.  Bubble did well on MYX music charts at number 14 upon its release, and number 21 on iTunes Philippines.  Currently it sits at number 10 in Pinas Music Zone's Top Picks Twenty20.

While some Dubai-based aspirants has to go through rigorous talent searches like Pilipinas Got Talent and X-Factor Philippines, Yelle's talent discovery came at a great odd chance, a lucky break.  “I was practising and my father, who was outside our house with friends, called me and introduced me to Sherrie Ang, a music industry executive. She asked me to video record some of my songs and do some covers too. I did and to my surprise she sent it to different record labels back home.” she said in an interview with Gulfnews. And quickly after, she inked a deal with GMA Records. Now I'm excited about what's in her bright future ahead.

On Friday night she will be performing as front act to Aiza Seguerra's show in Dubai. See the poster below for more details.
