In 2020, Music iPortal launched a Local Talent Show. Directed by Jamil Gaston, Executive Producer, who coached and performed for the Singers and Musicians. After the show, the reviews were outstanding. Jamil Gaston chose them individually to record a Holiday Album. Because the girls were so close in age and establish such a great rapport with each other so well, he later thought to make them a group. The girls bonded almost instantly. Spring 2020, the girls started to record, for their first time, in a music studio. Music iPortal Records officially named the group “Chosen5.” At the time, it included: Maya Samone, Grace Elly, Madisynn Rankin, Justus Bethea Hall and Magen Cornacchion. After months of rehearsing and recording, November 28th Launched the “Every Christmas Album.” The album launched locally and mostly advertised through social media. The attention attracted over 2000 followers and their music videos received over 100,000 views collectively. After the holidays, they came together and discussed with the producer that they wanted to become a band and to stay an official group. In order to do so, it required several meetings and planning. After the final plan rolled out to keep Chosen5 together, the group decided to part ways with Magen Cornacchione and later replaced with Joan Fritts.  In 2021, the Chosen5 will launch a Cover Album to show off their individual talent as well as come together to make originally music while paying homage to girl groups and famous female singers and perform at local venues all trying to maintain their high school and college paths. Their Christmas album “Every Christmas” can be found on all major platforms. Every Christmas the girls vowed to get together and Celebrate and perform hits from the album for their fans!
