Some say Celeste Buckingham, the drop dead gorgeous Slovakian songstress, is the best thing to have happened to contemporary music as of late and in all honesty, they’re not wrong. Much like many other sensational fellow singers, our talented star (that is Celeste) not only sings, she also writes her own songs. She quickly earned fame and respect when she appeared on the second season of the Superstar, a popular Czech and Slovakian reality show. Although, Celeste only managed to secure tenth place and was eliminated from the show, but she instantly became a mainstream singer after she released her debut album ‘Don’t Look Back’ which, in retrospect, is exactly what she did.
To her credit, she has an array of hit songs which contributed to her success and quickly elevated her status from an everyday singer to a prospective super star. Her single ‘Run Run Run’ climbed to second position on the national charts in both Czech and Slovakian. Interesting enough, this single is also said to be the most played song by any Slovakian performer in 2012.
Born on the 3rd of May, 1995, Celeste Rizvana Buckingham opened her eyes in Zurich, Switzerland. Although, our Swiss Miss is a Switzerland citizen, but she comes from a multicultural background, as her mother is of Russian and Iranian or Persian origins while her dad is of American and British origins. The biracial beauty is the eldest child and she spent most of her childhood days in Anchorage, Alaska.
The gifted songwriter started writing songs when she was only twelve years old and her very first song was Blue Guitar. From then, till now, she has written a number of hit songs. Celeste can fluently speak four different languages which of course in turn help her succeed across various European countries.
Celeste is currently based in Nashville Tennessee, USA and is a pro when it comes to playing instruments like guitar and piano. Her debut album ‘Don’t Look Back’ was praised by the Report magazine and was generally well received. This versatile singer/songwriter produces different genres of music including Pop, Hip Hop, Rock, Dance, Electronic and Soul music. She is a already climbing the ladder of success and has a sizable fan base which seems to be increasing with every passing day.
Celeste, in the book of music gurus, is the ‘next big thing’ and an artist to watch out for. If you have not had the chance to catch her live in action, you’re missing out. Just make sure to grab tickets to her show the next time our gorgeous, melodious star comes to your city.
