Considered a prodigy by many of her early voice teachers, Christine began her vocal training at the age of 9 and, by the age of 11 was studying and training with various university professors. Since then, Christine has devoted herself to perfecting her art and to breathing new life into the sacred texts of bygone centuries.
The 2011 release of her first recording, Ora Pro Nobis, was, for many, an introduction to the beauty of sacred music and Christine is committed deeply to the introduction and reintroduction of these sacred texts to a world that has all but forgotten many of them.

"Her Gloriously archangelic voice sang these beloved melodies as though they were written just for her. She demonstrated outstanding control of the musical line from the pianissimo to a powerful forte. The expression of emotion in the music never failed to rise to majesty."
"Christine's singing is beautiful, pitch perfect, powerful and radiates passion, rare to find these days. She is able
to portray my thoughts embedded in my music, by her powerful evocative singing, in way I have never experienced before."
Composer Ash Madni
