History~

Christina, grew up in the famous French Quarter of New Orleans, listening to the funky soulful sound of Louis Armstrong, Fats Domino, Professor Longhair, Allen Toussaint, Dr. John, Irma Thomas, Aaron Neville & The Neville Brothers. It was that gumbo of musical spice that seduced her into an unending love affair with music.

One of the highlights of her career was to work with Grammy Winner and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame legends Leiber and Stoller as the lead in their Workshop for Tales of Manhattan, with Yaron Gershovsky, Musical Director (Work Shop for Broadway).

She shared the stage with Rock and Roll Hall of Fame & Tony Award winner Ruth Brown in Stagerlee (Off-Broadway), written by Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member and Grammy®  Award Life Time Achievement Winner Allen Toussaint (NYNO Records).

Following that performance, she recorded with Toussaint at his famous Sea Saint Studios in New Orleans and released SeaSaint Sessions with him in 2007 as a sentimental tribute to the great music recorded there.  Sea Saint Studios was destroyed by the devastating hurricane, Katrina.

Christina also had the privilege to work on The Middle of Nowhere (Off-Broadway), written by Oscar and Grammy®  Winner legend Randy Newman and starring, Vondi Curtis Hall and Nick Sercy (known from Stephen Spielberg’s Castaway).

Internationally Christina has toured throughout Europe. Some of the many countries include; Germany, Italy, Yugoslavia, France, Austria, England, and Finland. It was a great experience for her to be able to perform at the Schubert Festival in Vienna, Austria. That endeavor led to performing for the great composer Aaron Copeland in a tribute performance to his music. South American tours include Mexico, Central America, South America and the Caribbean Islands.

'Priceless' is the 12th full album production in World Wide release.   She performs her music with her band of 12 years at many venues.  Currently, Christina is working on her next production.
