Ceasar Michael Elloie

Ceasar Elloie was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, to a culture where music is very likely the first sound a child entering his formative years would easily understand. Ceasar was no exception. Being the offspring of a mother who regularly attended services at area Baptist churches, Ceasar and his siblings were always in tow. It is this exposure to gospel music that contributed to the embedding of a spirit in Ceasar’s soul that is now expressed through song. Also noted, this same mother was often regarded as a clone of the renowned Queen of Soul, Ms. Aretha Franklin. So, combining the spiritual nature of his upbringing and the powerful singing voice of his mother; hence, we have Mr. Ceasar Michael Elloie....

Awards

Armstrong Family Services Award for Continued Dedication and participation in their fund raising efforts.
Wow!!! Ladies and gentlemen, today I'm presenting one of the best albums in 2010. I decided to present this album because in a few days the year will finish. In this way I want to honour this artist and his great album. Ceasar Elloie is the “Caesar” of soul and jazz music with a great deep-voice. He was born in 1953 and raised in the city of New Orleans. As a young kid his favorite toy was his voice. Later around at the age of 14, he discovered that his mother was a clone of Aretha Franklin as she kept music playing at all times in their home. They mostly listened to Johnny Mathis, Lou Rawls, Nancy Wilson, Dionne Warwick, Otis Redding, James Brown and just everybody whose music was out there. He began to sing Mardi Grass Indian songs on street corners with the fellows. These were known as chants. As he entered High School, he was invited to sing with his first Band. This was the beginning of his love to perform in public. Later he entered Southern University at New Orleans and was invited to sing with the Jazz Band under the direction of Dr.Edward “Kid” Jordan. During that period Dr.Jordan decided that it would be good to give the guys some Recording Studio experience. It was then that he wrote the lyrics of the songs entitled “Who Stole the Funk” and “I don't know”. As a result of preparation for recording, he gained an insight on what he needed to do regarding vocal technique.He released a single entitled “I don't know / Who stole the funk” on “New Orleans Records” in 1983.
