cc: DIVA

cc: DIVA was a pop\dance music duo that consisted of singer Natalie Bonelli and instrumentalist & producer Nayan.

The duo's name stood for "Coat Check Diva" from when Natalie was a coat check girl before starting her music career.
In 1988, they released their debut and only album "Yowusupwidat?" on EMI-Manhattan Records. The didn't appear to make an impact on the Billboard charts.
The first single "I'll Always Follow You" was released, but it is unknown how or if the single made the charts.
The duo's single "Searchin' For" managed to peak at #8 on Billboard's Hot Dance Music\Club Play chart.
The follow-up singles "I'm Gonna Get To You" and a cover version of the Friends of Distinction's hit song, "Grazin' in the Grass" were released, but they failed to make any impact on the charts.
After, that it seemed as if cc: DIVA faded into obscurity. Natalie contributed the song "Letting Go" to the television soundtrack to "Dawson's Creek."

In 2004, Natalie began recording an album with musician Sir David Minehan and she formed a makeup company called Personatalie with her friend, Nancy.

As for Nayan, he did writing and production work on a few singles during the late 80's\early 90's, but nothing has been heard from him since 1994.
