"A powerhouse performer. Arielle Crosby is simply, THE TRUTH. We will herald this name for years to come."
-Colman Domingo (Emmy Award winning, Oscar and Tony Award nominated actor)


Native Detroiter Arielle Crosby has been singing all of her life and performing since the age of 11. It began with placing first in a city-wide competition and has led to performances across the US and countries around the world. These stages range from Carnegie Hall in New York to Palau de la Música in Barcelona. Arielle made her professional theatre debut as the Narrator in Detroit Public Theatre's production of the Off-Broadway hit "Murder Ballad" and shortly thereafter made her national tour debut in Motown the Musical. She has since been seen in regional theatres across the country including the critically acclaimed and historic Oregon Shakespeare Festival. She was most recently seen as "Celie" in Short North Stage's production of "The Color Purple". She will be starring as "Rachel Marron" in Croswell Opera House's production of "The Bodyguard" this June!
