NINA ROSE PAOLICELLI (NINA P)

Nina Rose Paolicelli, known professionally as Nina Paolicelli or as “Nina P”, is an American singer, songwriter and philanthropist, originally from Rochester, NY. In 2013, in the wake of an abusive relationship, Nina’s mother moved both Nina and her brother to Los Angeles, where Nina was able to pursue her dream of becoming a singer.

Inspired by the events of Nina’s past, she wrote her first song, “Prove Them Wrong” (released Oct 2014) immediately followed by “Done and Over” (released Jan 2015); earning her multiple accolades and recognition, including an unsolicited shout out from Courtney Love.
Within two years of moving to Los Angeles, Nina released her first EP “Dream”, has performed at numerous venues and, most recently, has signed a distribution deal with a label under Sony.

On April 7, 2016, Nina, for the first time, performed her song “Look” at the RESOLVE of Greater Rochester fundraiser for victims of Domestic Violence – a cause close to Nina’s heart. On April 22nd, “Look” will be released under the Sony label for the world to hear.

Life Changes Show with Filippo Voltaggio
Show Host: 
Filippo Voltaggio

Come and join the conversation about what's going on and what we can do together about it, with it, and for it. We have the choice, we have the power. We can do magic if we just believe!

A show about the changes going on in us, to us, around us, and because of us. Therefore, it's technically a show about "Everything," only with a how to make it better, see it better, be better.

In the show, there is talk about, and with, people who have either been through major changes, are helping others with major changes, or people who are changing the world for the better in a major way.

The show is a one-hour talk show format with a monologue by the host, a 30 minute interview with a guest of note, capped by a "Producer's Wrap" segment, in which Filippo and Co-Host Mark Laisure, and sometimes surprise guests, bring it all home for the listeners in a sometimes humorous and sometimes touching, but always entertaining conversation.
