Ex Gainsborough children’s home resident breaks through in music

Previous resident of Northolme Children’s home in Gainsborough and former pupil at Trent Valley Academy is breaking a storm in the music industry. After leaving the care system at the age of 16 she went on to live a very turbulent life, dancing in Gentleman’s clubs and mixing with the wrong crowd. It wasn’t until Chantelle turned to music that her life saw a huge turnaround. Her first song ‘Pint In London’ was featured on BBC Radio 1 and she has since gained a Tik-Tok audience of over 62,000 followers.

‘I left the Children’s Home wanting more from life, but I was very naive. My journey has had many ups and downs, but if it wasn’t for the staff at Northolme who recognised my talent at an early age and fought for opportunities for me to develop my music interests then I wouldn’t be where I am today.’

Chantelle’s next song Law III, comes out on February 7th 2024 and is the beginning of a sound she calls ‘Bond Girl Rap.’ It is a song about fighting through struggle whilst battling mental health over a beautiful cinematic instrumental produced by Nick Stez.

This is only the start for Chantelle and we wish her the best.
