Meet Joy, Kelly, and Sara: a trio of gifted and beautiful singers from a range of musical backgrounds who, together, are Three Graces.

In Greek mythology, the Three Graces represent beauty, wisdom, and charm. Just like the legendary figures who inspired their name, these artists personify exhilarating talent. On their self-titled debut album, the trio explores a stunning array of musical styles and moods, singing in English, Italian, Spanish and French. Their mix of the best of pop, Broadway, and opera creates a unique listening experience that will undoubtedly win audiences’ hearts. Three Graces is compromised of Sara Gettelfinger, Kelly Levesque and Joy Kabanuck.

All three artists are tremendously accomplished in the genres from which they respectively come. Joy Kabanuck starred in the lead role of Mimi in Baz Luhrmann’s Broadway production of Puccini’s opera La Boheme. Joy was also a Los Angeles district finalist in the highly prestigious New York Metropolitan Opera Council auditions and a finalist in the Los Angeles Artist of the Future competition. She has also sung the leading roles in Mozart’s opera Cosi fan Tutte and Donizetti’s Betly, as well as performing in Gounod’s Faust, Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor, and Verdi’s La Traviata.

Kelly Levesque (pronounced Le-Vek) sang duets onstage with Andrea Bocelli during his last US tour. Other world-famous artists with whom she has performed include Josh Groban, Russell Watson, and Vittorio Grigolo. The roster of Grammy Award-winning producer/songwriters with whom she has worked includes David Foster, Diane Warren, and the Neptunes. She also sang the song “Some Hearts” on the soundtrack of the Julia Roberts/Catherine Zeta Jones film America’s Sweethearts.

Sara Gettelfinger has starred on Broadway in such shows as Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Seussical the musical, The Boys from Syracuse, and NINE. Other credits include Edith (“Little Edie”) Bouvier in the Playwrights Horizon world premiere of Grey Gardens as well as the first national tour of Fosse.

In the course of working together for the past two years, these talented young women have had the chance to explore avenues that might not have otherwise been part of their musical paths. “What’s wonderful,” Joy remarks, “is that since we’ve had very different experiences in life and in the music business, we’ve learned a ton from each other.”

Their range of expertise is what makes Three Graces the compelling artists they are. As Sara notes, “The more variety you have, the more colors you have to paint with, and the more thrilling the experience is both for us and for listeners.” “I like to call what we do ‘smart pop,’” Kelly observes. “There’s something for everyone.”

On their debut album, slated for release on Decca in March 2008, these talented young women have joined forces with some of the world’s top music producers and songwriters. They include Walter Afanasieff (Mariah Carey, Celine Dion), Desmond Child (Bon Jovi, Ricky Martin), Guy Roche (Christina Aguilera, Michael Bolton) and Mark Portmann (Luis Miguel, Barbra Streisand).

The result is a unique mix that will leave listeners spellbound. Three Graces features a breathtaking array of inspiring words, soaring harmonies, and melodic fireworks. They include pop favorites like Phil Collins’ “Against All Odds,” Snow Patrol’s “Run,” and Heart’s “These Dreams,” all given the magical Three Graces touch. Showcasing another side of Three Graces’ incredible talents, the group’s debut also features two songs co-written by the trio, including “I Wish (All the Love in the World)” and “Don’t Let Me Forget.”

Pure talent, incredible emotion, and dazzling presence: Three Graces have it all.

Born in Louisville, KY., I was very fortunate to be introduced to the arts at a very young age. Trips to Actors Theater of Lousiville, Kentucky Center for the Arts, The Louisville Ballet, and The Kentucky Opera were a regular and wonderful part of my childhood. I started dancing at age 3, entered my first acting program at age 10, and booked my first professional show at age 13. For high school I attended Lousiville's Youth Performing Arts School, then went on to earn my BFA from Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music. In 1999 I moved to New York City, and since then,credits include: Broadway- Suessical the Musical,The Boys from Syracuse, Carla in NINE with Antonio Banderas, Jolene Oakes in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels opposite John Lithgow, and the first national tour of FOSSE.

In the fall of 2006 I was introduced to two amazing women-the beautiful and talented Kelly Levesque and Joy Kabanuk.

We've spent the last year writing and recording and our collaborators included Cohen&Oakes, Mark Portman, Walter A., and Desmond Child. Our self-titled,debut album will be released in March 2008.
