Eliz Camacho is one of North Carolina’s fastest rising stars. Beautiful, charming, passionate, and witty are but a few words that could describe Eliz. But don’t let the pretty face fool you; there’s much more to Eliz than a pretty face and a soulful voice. Eliz Camacho caught our attention because she possesses the “Triple Threat”, she sings, models, and is an actress. Eliz feels like she has the best of both worlds because she grew up listening to Hip-Hop and R&B, along with Latin Music (Salsa, Merengue, and Bachata). Eliz is of African-American and Puerto Rican heritage. She fully embraces her heritage and infuses her dual roots in her artistic expression. Some of her favorite artists include Chaka Khan, Stevie Wonder, Patti LaBelle, Duke Ellington, Enrique Iglesias, Selena, and Celia Cruz.
During her teenage years, Eliz received vocal training but wasn’t sure if she wanted to make singing a career. But everything changed when she received a call to sing the National Anthem for President-Elect Barak Obama. Before signing in front of a crowd of nearly 10,000 people, Eliz received a send-off from her church. “After singing the National Anthem for the First African-American President, I knew I had to take singing more seriously,” said Eliz. One year after singing for the President, Eliz landed her first movie role in Changing The Game. “It felt like a dream come true! I had a small role but the experience was priceless,” says Ms. Camacho.
