Christine has enjoyed the opportunity to connect with a new audience through the magic of Aretha Franklin’s music. “Nobody says it or sings it better than Aretha Franklin. She is one of my greatest influences and an inspiration. I truly believe she is the greatest soul singer of our time,” says Christine.

A multi-ARIA nominee and recipient, Christine has had platinum albums, a Green Room Award for Best Actress in a Musical, won song of the year (for My Island Home) and is an eight-time Deadly Award recipient, with no plans to slow down.
