Christina Sofina is a multilingual r&b/pop singer of Russian, Jewish, Greek and Brazilian descent residing in Los Angeles. She started her professional career in 2007, participated in MTV Russia’s pop project Yes!No!Maybe!, declined a contract with GALA records (Universal Russia), performed for Radio Montecarlo, Glamour, Cyprus DeLuxe Business Awards, SOHO rooms, Volvo Fashion Week, Italian Council, San Ysidro Education Vanguard Foundation, Red Bull Basketball Tournament and many other prestigious venues throughout the world.

Christina always knew she wanted to sing. Her family was forced to move out of Kazakhstan, the country she was born in, to Russia due to Mafia’s threats against her father’s business. Her father died when she was 8. She and her family had to fight poverty and depressions for many years, but it only made her stronger. “I wouldn’t be myself and have the knowledge that I have now, if I didn’t go though all those things” – says Christina. Music was a runaway for her, as she could let her emotions go when she was immersed in a song. Her philosophy in music and in life is to always seek positivity.

At the moment she is working on her new album ‘A La Russe’ where she explores life from a position of an immigrant, being judged by the looks, deciding to terminate a relationship that made her (almost) lose her dreams, finding purpose again and falling in love. Musically the album consists of old school r&b sounds crossing over to tropical pop, with Russian, Brazilian and Middle Eastern sounds.

Through her music, Christina wants to bring out the message that anyone can be who they want to be, that they are in charge of their own life. She creates her world out loud so other people can live it too, hoping that anybody who listens to her will subconsciously elevate their lives.
