Described as “like Lady Gaga for kids,” with a super pop sound mixed with a touch of Broadway belt, a sparkling soupçon of hip hop, and plenty of EDM glam, Twinkle has always danced to the beat of her own drum, breaking barriers, sound and otherwise, with both her music and Harajuku-style presentation.
Launched by a childhood saturated with the sound and fury of Top 40 artists like Madonna, Lady Gaga, Gloria Estefan, Michael Jackson, Prince, Selena, Cher, and Shania Twain, Twinkle has forever experienced a gravitational pull in the direction of performers who create the “whole package,” from their infectious melodies and distinctive vocal qualities to their show-stopping presentations and trademark looks. With her own award-winning albums, raise-the-roof concerts, and one-of-a-kind costuming and make-up, Twinkle follows suit, dazzling kids and families nationwide.
Twinkle grew up onstage in show business, performing as a child and teen in L.A. doing TV, musical theatre playing Bielke in Fiddler on the Roof at the age of seven, as a tween, she was a series regular in the first Spanish family comedy, Sanchez of Bel-Air, for the Paramount/USA network, and she also had a recurring role on NBC’s My Two Dads. At 16 years of age right out of high school Twinkle packed her bags to rock out in Jesus Christ Superstar with Ted Neeley and the late Carl Anderson touring the country and Canada in the National Broadway Tour. Twinkle has also done numerous national commercials and voiceovers in both English and Latin markets including the singing voice for the Bratz doll commercials.
Explains Twinkle, “My concerts have everything that parents and teens would see watching Gaga or Bruno, but with age-appropriate messages and lyrics. Just as mainstream music is accepting of different categories – pop, R&B, hip hop, country, dance, jazz, etc., it’s my hope that all genres would be accepted by the kindie world, too. Why not introduce kids to all styles of music?”
The daughter of a Peruvian mom and a Brooklyn-raised, Romanian-Jewish dad, Twinkle’s first language was Spanish. With sensitivity and balance, she incorporates both Spanish and English into every performance. In the last 5 years, Twinkle and her band perform over 250 concerts per year nationwide. 2020 was supposed to be Twinkle’s 10-year celebration of being a family recording artist with a 4th album and her first all Spanish album dropping in the summer of 2020 with 320 touring dates all over the country and even doing a two-week tour in China and 2 weeks in Japan but all that changed in a blink of an eye on March 8th of 2020 when all tour dates canceled for the rest of the year.
Twinkle put her long-awaited albums on hold and “Being Safer At Home” made Twinkle quickly roll with the punches and adapt to the virtual space. Twinkle went full steam ahead with creating her own daily YouTube LIVE stream variety show for the whole family. Almost 200 LIVE streams completed Twinkle Time LIVE Online #TTLOL has garnered rave reviews including one from Geek Dads “Give your youngster a juice box and some pretzels it’s their version of Oprah, if Oprah channeled Lady Gaga” In May of 2020 Twinkle released her critically acclaimed first singles off her upcoming albums –Together in English and Unidos en Español which just won Best Latin Song of 2020 for the USA SONGWRITING competition. Adding one more hat to Twinkle’s many hats she also has become Producer and Radio Personality on her very own radio show Twinkle Time Top Twenty Countdown on Jump1053.Pittsburg bringing the hottest family music from around the world amplifying all musical genres in the family space. 2020 might’ve looked a bit different for Indie Artist Twinkle but with creativity and the love of what she does Twinkle turned sour lemons into sweet lemonade giving kids of ALL ages the message of hope and unity!
In terms of an all-out kindie pop extravaganza — EDM, hip-hop, pop all rolled into one –Twinkle Time’s music is on an entirely different level than most independently produced kids’ music.
