Christina grew up with music all around her. Christina's Mother,
Marcella, made sure the children were surrounded with records. One
of her earliest memories as a child is playing on the old apartment
porch with her sister, dancing to records like "Raindrops Keep
Falling on My Head" and "Bend Me Shake Me." Her mom also would sing
to the girls all the time.
Marcella herself has a beautiful singing voice, but she never
chose to do anything professionally with it.
Soon the family moved from the city of Chicago to one of the
local suburbs, Westmont.
Christina there matured as a singer, and got involved in all of
the school plays and assemblies she could. From her first year in
elementary school to her graduation day in high school, Christina
was singing her heart out for everyone.
For two summers, they went to a resort hotel in Wisconsin, and
Christina, at the age of 12, and then again at 13, sang her heart
out for the audience during the "Amateur Night" Talent Show.
Although the entertainment director of the resort wanted Christina
to audition to sing as a professional, her parents wouldn't allow
Christina continued to sing in high school plays and other
performances, but never was encouraged to pursue a career in the
music business, so she decided to become a schoolteacher.
Shortly after receiving her first teaching position, she was
singing with the local band "Panama" for a school assembly! It was
such an event that it made the local news cast that night, which was
a highlight for her, and for the school.
Today, Christina is still teaching and singing at her school,
and loving it. She's a devoted mother and wife, and has always tried
to put God first. Now that her children are somewhat older, she's
decided to do what she's loved all her life……SING!
