Kerli Kõiv ( born February 7, 1987), usually referred to mononymously as Kerli, is an Estonian recording artist and songwriter. Born in Elva in the final years of the Estonian Soviet Socialist Republic, Kerli entered multiple singing competitions before being signed to Island Records in 2006 by LA Reid. In 2007, she released her debut self-titled extended play and in 2008, released her debut studio album, ''Love Is Dead'', the latter of which charted on the ''Billboard'' 200. The lead single from the album, "Walking on Air", charted in many countries and was also featured as the iTunes Store's Single of the Week where it was downloaded over 500,000 times, a record at that time. In the years following, Kerli was featured on ''Almost Alice'' with the song "Tea Party" and she began to abandon her alternative rock sound and started to adopt a more electronic and dance-influenced sound, wherein she released a single with producer tyDi titled "Glow in the Dark" and also joined the Warner/Chappell Music songwriting team. Following the release of ''Love Is Dead'', Kerli began production on a second studio album, which inevitably became her second extended play ''Utopia'', which was released in early 2013, where it became Kerli's second release to chart on the ''Billboard'' 200. Two promotional singles from the EP, "Army of Love" and "Zero Gravity", were released prior to the release of the album's first official single, "The Lucky Ones". All three songs entered the top ten of ''Billboards'' Hot Dance Club Songs chart, two of them peaking at number one. Two songs which were co-written by Kerli for ''Utopia'', "Skyscraper" and "I Feel Immortal", were later recorded by artists Demi Lovato and Tarja Turunen respectively. Kerli's version of "I Feel Immortal" was later released on ''Frankenweenie Unleashed!''. In 2013, Kerli performed on ''Dancing with the Stars''; ''Vibe'' called the performance a "major milestone in the [electronic dance music] world."Wikipedia This entry is from Wikipedia, the user-contributed encyclopedia.
