Christina Elise a multifaceted entertainer, this singer, songwriter has captivated several audiences with her rich, authentic vocals and unique appeal. Writing and co-producing all of the songs on of her albums this singer holds no, one title.
"My passion is to make music that actually talks about something, to help people and bring forth love, life and truth back to what music really represents "
Growing up in a very musical household, the granddaughter of a famed saxophonist, Elvin Shepherd, who taught and mentored the likes of Miles Davis, Grover Washington Jr. and other jazz greats; the legacy of music was left for her only to follow the calling she was destined to have. Her father, a professional piano and organist player and older sister, a singer and pianist, also greatly influenced her love for music and confirmed that the gift of music was in her blood.
Throughout her childhood, Christina Elise performed and recorded some her first songs at the tender age of six in a small church choir group made up of her father, sisters and friends.
"We didn't have much growing up, but we always had God, love and of course music "
She also enjoyed attending some of her father and grandfather's concerts and band sessions which also began to nurture her future performances and natural showmanship.
Early on Christina expressed a strong love and interest in music and grew up on the Motown sound-R&B, jazz, pop and rock music and a variety of artists and music styles. Many of her musical influences and style was from such legendary artists ssuch as Stevie Wonder, Prince, Smokey Robinson, Debarge, Tamia, Mariah Carey and countless others.
And as she got older she put her pen to paper to write some of her most artistically-provoking and deepest songs as it related to her life, her faith and past struggles.
"My father and grandfather introduced me to a whole new world of sound. My sister gave way to my unique style. And my life experiences gave way to my storytelling in the form of lyrics..."

While there she performed in several concerts, shows and musicals.
