    Cappella is one of those bands where the name represents the work of many, many people:
    The producers, the musicians, the DJs and the vocalist. The act that the public saw promoting the tunes
    was originally vocalist Kelly Overett and Rodney Bishop. Kelly has since gone solo under the name of Kelly-O,
    and the space she left behind has been filled by Alison Jordan.

    The name Cappella refers to Italian Renaissance Frescos and Chapels, and was chosen to emphasise the idea of rebirth.
    Just as the period of Renaissance is linked to the idea of the rebirth of culture, Cappella's house music is linked to the idea of the rebirth of Eurodance music.

    It was the great idea of Gianfranco Bortolotti who, in 1987, led the Media team to create the track "Bauhaus/Push The Beat", which had great success in clubs all over the world, entering many of the European charts, including the UK Top 50! The first breakthrough for Cappella.

    About a year later the track "Helyom Halib" was released, which turned out to be a major stormer, reaching very high positions in various international charts, including the UK Top 10.This chronicle of huge success was to continue with such massive tunes as "House Of Alkali", "Be Master In One's Own House", "House Energy Revenge", "Get Out of My Case" and "The Rotation Of The House". The next track "Take Me Away" had huge success due to the sampling of Loleatta Holoway vocals from her very own 1980 disco classic "Love Sensation".

    Their success was to see rapid growth with the release of the single
    "U Got 2 Know" early in '93 which went Top 10 in the UK and Germany, and Top 30 all over Europe. The first major European success for Cappella.The next two years saw one success after another, the biggest triumph being "U Got 2 Let The Music", which found its way to the top spot in many of the European charts! But things had only just begun!
    The Ace of Cappella tracks was undoubtedly "Move On Baby". Released in 1994, its powerful, racey and melodic theme took it to number one in the UK, the Euro Sales Chart and a number of other countries! Following that, Media released the dance floor's most eagerly awaited album of the year, "U Got 2 Know". From the album, "U & Me" and "Move It Up" were released in 1994, and both repeated the massive success that Cappella were becoming accustomed to!

    The year 1995 saw a few changes in the Cappella/Media Records team. Alison Jordan joined the team. The single "Don't Be Proud" was released and in the summer the absolutely massive "Tell Me The Way" was released which had great, and well deserved, success in the Italian official charts, and a large number of other countries.

    In January 1996 Cappella released "I Need Your Love" it immediately climbed up the club and sales charts. They also released "Back In Your Life" and in the summer of 1996 they released their second album called "War In Heaven",
    and then in the fall they released their single "Turn It Up and Down", a superb track in a typical Cappella style.

    In April/May 1997 they released a single called "Be My Baby" in most of Europe.
    The single "U Tore My World Apart" was only released in Germany. In Scandinavia
    the single "Do You Run Away Now" was released and in Holland the single "The Big Beat"
    was released.
    Later in 1997 the rapper Rodney was fired, and the rap was taken over by T. Pagani.

    Later in 1998 Cappella released the superb single "U R The Power Of Love" which is
    in the same good-old fashioned Cappella sound.
    Cappella released a single in Spain on the 8th of October, "U R The Power Of Love".
    It was released by Bit Records.

    Cappella released the song "U Got 2 Let The Music" in a "98" version, in November.
    This single contained 5 mixes of the brand new '98 version plus a never released song:
    "Leave It".

    After years of silence things started to heathen up again. Cappella release the single "U Got 2 Know 2002"
    in September. "U Got 2 Know" was Cappella's real breakthrough in the charts, now they released this track
    again to let the fans and other people know that Cappella will be back.

    Cappella was back with the single "Angel". It was released on 12" in April and as a CDM in August.
    In August Cappella also released a 12" promo, yet another "remake", entitled "U Got 2 Let The Music 2004".

    "U Got 2 Let The Music 2004" was released on December 13, 2004.
