She was born with the gift of music and hails from the beautiful West African nation of Liberia. Loved and nurtured by her God-fearing grandparents, Bishop and Mother Abraham & Cora Simmons, she was raised in an environment optimal for artistic growth and freedom. Christine is blessed with the gift of music and, when she ministers, the sound has the power to reach within each listening individual and touch the part in each one of them that yearns to soar through life on wings of eagle. She is not afraid to plunge into the depths of human emotion and vocalize its effects on the soul and she does it naturally.
A classical music education, adorned with syncopated notes of opera, jazz, blues, afro-beats, soul, church, and a musical theater backgrounds, is just the tip of the iceberg for this unquestionably gifted songstress. Christine has left her musical mark on Liberian and contemporary Christian music communities in California, Georgia, Texas, and the DC-Maryland-Virginia areas. Although her accomplishments are admirable, nothing can prepare one for what emerges the moment she parts her lips to set free her vocal brilliance. Christine has a unique ability to transpose her listening audience to different environments and cultures and to transform her musical choices into profound lyrical arrangements that reflect an awareness of a universal experience.
She is a born-again child of the Most High God, Jehovah, and she is constantly aware that her gift is for the glory of God and for the edification of others. Her mission is to point everyone to the risen Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and to tell all of His amazing love. She was destined to breathe notes filled with the diversity, warmth, and love gained from her culturally spiced experiences. Truly, she was created to worship!
