Alumna Cole Campbell graduated from Cabrini College in 2006. “I feel like I had ties to Cabrini,” Campbell said. “I had been there a bunch of times and had faces and places I was familiar with.” Cole began her Cabrini career as a sports science major but found it just wasn’t for her. Cole graduated from Cabrini with an education degree.
Before Cabrini was a thought, in her senior year of high school, Cole and her friend entered into the talent show, where they sung and played guitar to Jewel and the Cranberries. “Singing was not so much a dream, but a talent I possessed,” Campbell said.
From then on, Campbell began to write and sing her own songs. Cole released her first album this past spring, titled “Moments Passing By.” “I wish I selected my songs based on a theme or single element,” Campbell said, “but they are all individual experiences, a story of love, passion, happiness, seduction and violence.”
Her family and friends were with her every step of the way. “I feel very proud,” husband Matt Campbell said. “Cole put so much time and energy into this album, I am in awe of what she is able to accomplish.” For over 10 years her husband has listened to her music. He was never able to describe what it is about her music that captivated him, until one time. “It was Memorial Day weekend, and she was performing at a local venue,” Campbell said. “The town was pretty quiet, but Cole ran a speaker outside, and within minutes had a crowd coming off the streets.”
“I did it with the help of my family, my friends, and friends I met through the recording process,” Campbell said. “Finishing this cd was a huge milestone for me to jump.”
