LOS ANGELES February 15, 2018
In a move that enhances her connection and gives back to her fans, Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter, producer, model, and actress Ciara became the second featured celebrity to launch on the TraceMe app today.
The Ciara fan community now has an exclusive VIP destination, with the star opening up her world and sharing intimate moments — from making music, collaborating with choreographers and dancers, to being a mom and pressing forward in business, philanthropy, and technology.
TraceMe, currently available on the App Store and coming soon for Android, is an uplifting platform that enables passionate fans to gain exclusive access to the worlds of their favorite celebrities, athletes, and entertainers. It combines original content, such as unseen behind the scenes videos, performance footage, and rehearsal sessions with fan community conversations and exclusive giveaways.
As a special treat to kick off the launch, the songstress unveiled baby daughter, Sienna Princess Wilson, to the world for the first time in an immersive video that was posted exclusively on TraceMe. The footage gives behind-the-scenes access to the private moments of a photoshoot of Ciara with her two children shot by surprise photographer Russell Wilson.
Ciara commented to her fans: “I’m so excited to be opening up my world to you on TraceMe. You guys know that I tend to be private with a lot of things, but with TraceMe I can have a genuine, unfiltered connection with you all. My motivation for this was to give back for all of your support throughout the years. We now have a special place where you can get to know more about me, and see all the fun things that go on with my music, my family, my fashion, and so much more.”
As part of her TraceMe world, Ciara is launching Real Talk, where she goes “off the record” to discuss a wide range of topics in an open, live chat setting with her fans. Other Ciara content highlights include:
- With Behind the Scenes, fans get a never-before-revealed multimedia window on all that goes into her performances, recordings, photoshoots, and special projects.
- An upcoming dance and music series will feature unique dance content with appearances from star choreographer Jamaica Craft, Ciara’s “twin soul of dance.”
- With Mama C, we go inside Ciara’s world and see the fun projects she takes on — often alongside YouTube mom sensation Brooke Mahan. Fans also get to hear what’s important to her as she raises a family and balances her career.
- With Glam Time, fans can learn the inspirations behind C’s iconic looks with hair guru Caesar Ramirez and makeup pro Yolanda Frederick.
