Nicole Scherzinger

Nicole Prescovia Elikolani Valiente Scherzinger is an American recording artist and television personality. Born in Honolulu, Hawaii and raised in Louisville, Kentucky, she enrolled in performing arts schools and performed in singing and dancing competitions as a child before becoming the lead singer of The Pussycat Dolls, one of the world's best-selling girl groups of all time, in the 2000s. Scherzinger has since endorsed such brands as Estée Lauder, Nike, Herbal Essences and Beats By Dr Dre.

During the group's hiatus, Scherzinger released her debut single "Baby Love" (2007), which brought Scherzinger into the media spotlight. After the disbandment of The Pussycat Dolls in 2010, Scherzinger released her debut solo studio album Killer Love (2011); it became one of the most successful albums of that year and spawned top three singles "Poison", "Don't Hold Your Breath" and "Right There". Scherzinger's currently untitled second album is to be released in November 2013, and is preceded by its lead single "Boomerang" which became a top ten hit. Scherzinger has also featured on hit singles including "Jai Ho! (You Are My Destiny)" and "Heartbeat".
