Meet The Team: Chrissa
Tell us a little about yourself... where were you born, where did you grow up, married with children?
My mama is Colombian and my dad is Norwegian and I was born in Bodø, Norway! I've lived in Bergen since I was 5. I have a 12 year old son, 3 year old twin daughters and my youngest daughter will be 1 this July!
Do you remember the first CD/cassette (or vinyl) you bought?
My first vinyl was Elvis, my parents had this big collection and I loved playing them all. The crackling sound of the needle hitting is probably still one of my favorite sounds. First cassette I bought was Michael Jackson and my first CD's were the Bohemian Rhapsody single and Music Box by Mariah Carey.
What are your favourite genres and eras of music?
It would be easier to list what I don't like, I like almost all genres. Anything I can get to agree with my voice at some point. Pop, blues, jazz, folk, soul and RnB would be some.
Being quite new to the world of Smule competitions, what made you fall in love with Vocal Edge, and want to join our team?
The structure and the vision of Vocal Edge is what made me interested. The wonderful spirit of it all, the challenges, the people, the support, the friendships - the way people blossomed as artists and as human beings is what made me fall in love with, and want to be a part of it all!
You were a coach last season - did you enjoy it and why?
I did enjoy it. Just being able to be there to support and watch all that amazing talent unfold and evolve, was rewarding and truly magical.
Who is your vocal inspiration?
Christina Aguilera & Ariana Grande
One final thing... burger or fries?
Both! I mean. The burger comes with fries right? But if I had to choose just one, I'd have to say fries. They're sexier...!?
