Born into a musical family Chrissy studied voice & soprano singing technique under the tutelage of Miss Joan Partington for four years. On graduating Chrissy diversified from her classical training and began working with her sister Ann, as cabaret duo 'Intuition' they travelled the world together, and for three years were backing singers for Greek star Demis Roussos.
Not satisfied being part of the back line Chrissy decided upon a solo career and accepted a contract in Johannesburg South Africa. Within 6 weeks in SA she was snapped up by EMI records and was playing a lead in role in 'Jerry's Girls' on the theatre circuit. More musical theatre followed, Phantom, Music of the Night, Let's Do It, Abba the musical, Evita and J.C superstar. TV appearances and recording kept Chrissy a popular performer in Southern Africa. She was chosen to open the International A.I.D.S conference where she sang before 60 heads of state and shared the stage with Nelson Mandela.
Chrissy left Africa in 2001 and relocated with partner Alessandro to Italy. She won a prestigious music award in Salerno and performed several concerts with Carl Anderson in 2005/6 under Maestro Kevin Farrell. Invited to appear at the famed Ravello festival and on the classical Villa Rufolo stage Chrissy performed the Richard Rogers Centenary concert with a full symphony orchestra.
She returned to her classical roots whilst living in Italy and continued her studies there. This unique situation gave Chrissy dance chart success at the same time as performing on the classical stage, showing her versatility in both genres. December 2009 Chrissy flew to South Africa to perform 3 shows at Aqua Festival on a floating stage in Cape Town harbour with a full orchestra to welcome in the New Year, a very important World Cup hosting year for South Africa. Now back in the UK she performs all around the country at a wide variety of events.
