Chelsea Elise

Singer | Songwriter | Coach

Christian/Inspirational singer/songwriter  born and raised in Los Angeles, CA. She began acting and singing professionally at age 8 and by age 11 starred as “Young Nala” in Disney’s Broadway Musical The Lion King. Chelsea went on to co-star in many musicals such as multi-Tony award winning composer Jason Robert Brown’s “13”, as well as guest-starring on tv shows such as Girlfriends, Desperate Housewives, Judging Amy, The District, and Just Jordan, along with national commercials.

Chelsea graduated from UCLA’s School of Theater, Film and Television while working two jobs and being a new single mom. 

After college, Chelsea realized she no longer felt authentic to who she was created to be, as an actress, and walked away from Hollywood. With no backup plan, Chelsea unknowingly began to pursue the music career God was calling her to. Her music and performance style incorporate her love for theater and worship, with an urban flair. 

Chelsea has been the Worship Director at Calvary Chapel Crenshaw for 7 years, where she leads worship every week in addition to Community Baptist Church in Los Angeles. Her love for gospel and contemporary christian music influences her pure yet soulful sound. 

Today, Chelsea enjoys performing live events, speaking, and leading women to boldly step out and pursue all that God has for them, no matter how scary it may be.

“You can achieve impossible dreams.”
