In the culturally rich landscape of Kazakhstan, the seed of a remarkable musical talent was sown. Christina Sofina, now a recognized singer in the United States, was born in this Central Asian locale. Her journey from Kazakhstan to Russia and eventually to the United States is a testament to the power of passion and resilience.

Christina spent her formative years immersed in the soothing enchantment of music. Her parents were her initial introductions to the world of rhythm and melody. Gary Moore, Ella Fitzgerald, and Seal records were played around the house. Queen’s iconic hits, particularly Freddie Mercury’s white tank top performance, left a profound influence on her. The legendary show stirred a longing within young Christina to someday grace a stage with millions swaying to her melody.

A peculiar musical endeavor known as The Rapsody Overture: Hip Hop Meets Classic (1997) further refined her musical inclinations. The unique blend of hip-hop and Russian opera piqued Christina’s fascination. The captivating incorporation of Prince Igor’s chorus, a renowned Russian opera, in one of the album’s songs spoke to her emerging artistic self, instigating her lifelong passion for singing and performing.

The chapters of Christina’s musical journey started unfolding in Russia, where she first lent her voice to school songs and children’s musicals. Much to her surprise, an audition, initially intended for a minor role of a butterfly, morphed into the lead role of the mayor, courtesy of the perceptive musical director who spotted the budding talent in her. Then, in 2010, she had her first international success performing with MTV VJs formed musical project “Yes!No!Maybe!” all over Russia, Cyprus, and Turkey.

As the years passed, Christina’s musical fervor grew stronger, leading her to the United States in 2013. Choosing to settle in California, she found herself in Oceanside before eventually making her home in Orange County. The transition to a different cultural vibe, coupled with the intimidating task of making a living as a musician, clearly had its challenges. However, the unshakable determination and fervent love for music that defined Christina guided her through.

Christina’s unique sound attracted collaborations with various artists and producers in the industry, one of whom was Tyler Humphrey from Iconica Records. Together, they produced “Mezcal,” catapulting Christina to recognition in the American music industry.

Despite unexpected obstacles, Christina stays committed to ushering exceptional music into the world. A quote she holds dear encapsulates her mindset aptly, “A career in this industry is about what you allow yourself to be. People get intimidated easily, but I’ve been in situations where I’m doing my thing but see other people and have the urge to compare. They’re professional and work hard, they love what they do, and they’re consistent, but I am, too. I deserve that. It’s a big mindset thing.”
