She stands out from the audience with passion and feeling. Nelia is a dynamic, modern singer with a captivating vocal power and melodic voice who is mesmerizing the audiences of all the world.

The beginning of her career started when she was a child, only 5 years old, playing the piano and performing in front of little audience by singing the theme songs of the cartoons. When she was 12 she started taking lessons by her vocal coach Annabella Rossi, a popular soprano.

After a while she met Edda Dell’Orso, the famous interpreter of sound tracks written by Maestro Ennio Morricone for movies like “Once upon a time the West“. Thanks to her teachings and to a long time experience on the stage, Nelia started winning the first awards in many national competitions.

In 1995 she became a member of the Italian Society for Authors and Publishers (SIAE) as author and composer, and she won the 2nd Award in one of the most important national competitions, that is the “Festival of Castrocaro” on the main national TV Station RAI UNO, performing an original song “Anni bui” written by her and her producer at that time Giampiero Artegiani * who was one of the most famous authors of Italian songs, such as “Perdere lamore” by Massimo Ranieri. “Anni bui” was released with her first album “Carmen Corona” (which was her stage name at that time) published by Fonit Cetra and distributed by Sony Music in 1997.

Nelia recorded many hit songs such as Memory (Barbra Streisand), “Blowinin the wind” (B. Dylan), an Italian folk song Sti’ Ccanzone sung in Neapolitan dialect and many more.

She has been performing in many Shows in Italy and abroad (Management by Dino Vitola who was the talent scout of Laura Pausini, Vasco Rossi and that has been in charge of casting successful television programs in Italy) accompanied by her first band “L’Occhio della Gente” and singing original songs written by herself but also some Italian hits like “Caruso” which let her shows become more and more culturally unique and internationally attractive, especially in the United States of America.

In 1999 she was the finalist in a national competition called “Accademia della Canzone di Sanremo”, performing an original song “Gli uomini vanno via written together with Maestro Stefano Cenci (the author of many popular Italian songs sung by the popular Italian artists Mina and Celentano).

In 2012 a cooperation with some authors in the United States of America started. In particular, the one with Nico Adams brought Nelia to write a beautiful song “True Light” which single was released at the end of 2021 that recently reached more than 108k views worldwide on Youtube. Actually her Youtube Channel counts more than 12k subscribers, as well as her Spotify page, and many others.

In 2019, due to some changes both in her artistic and private life, she’s decided to change her stage name, switching from Carmen Corona to Nelia Ross. And another beautiful cooperation started with some artists based in London (UK).
Nelia has been recording some original songs written by herself. The sound of these songs changed, became more electronic, in a typical English style, but the Italian melody and the American rhythm still remain.

At the end of 2019 Nelia started performing as Pop Opera Singer in many historical Theaters in Italy , like “Teatro Greco” and “Teatro Manzoni” in Rome,  and many others, with “La Compagnia di Operetta” directed by the famous Tenor Edoardo Guarnera, and received great accomplishments in the Country because she has been performing the Italian Opera and mixed it together with the Italian folk/pop songs that had great success all over Europe.

She performed with the Italian Orchestra composed by 8 musicians, 5 backing vocals, 5 dancers and 1 popular Italian Tenor Massimiliano Drapello, and occasionally having as special guest the famous soprano from Poland Dominika Zamara with whom she’s been performing some duets in Opera, since she’s a pop singer but she has been studying also for performing as a Soprano. She has such a wide vocal range that allows her to easily afford the pop music as well as the Opera, switching from one genre to another one very quickly. And this is one of the peculiar aspects that gives to her shows that uniqueness that is so much appreciated abroad, such as in Europe, Japan, China, South America and mainly in the United States. Also a selection of original and ancient costumes (XVIII century) are worn by Nelia Ross and her Orchestra to remind people of the origins of the Opera and the Italian culture.
