Christy was raised in Syracuse, NY with both her parents and two older brothers. Her parents were both musicians so it was easy for her to get into music. Before she was 5 she was in love with singing. Her brothers used to beg her parents to make her stop singing when they were in the car. Christy was in school musicals and choirs all through her school years. One memory she recalls is singing on Christmas Eve in her church at 10 years old, “I sang Amy Grant’s ‘Emmanuel’. I will always remember how I wasn’t nervous at all. I couldn’t wait to get up there and sing. It was a turning point for me. I fell in love with performing and singing.”
Since then she has sung in numerous musicals and plays at college. She worked as a soloist at Camp of the Woods for 4 summers. She also toured to Europe with the Continental Singers. Most recently, you can find her singing in an acoustic Duo where she lives and also singing in Nursing homes as a ministry. She was signed by Lamon Records the summer of 2011 at the Gideon Film Festival.
“It was a dream come true for me. Having Dave Moody come up to me and offer to sign me as an artist just blew me away.”
Christy credits her Saviour Jesus, for all her gifts. Without Him, she would not have anything to write or the ability to sing. Her relationship with him, all the peaks and valleys, have given her so much to write about. She went through a really deep valley in 2002. Her life was shaken really hard as well as her faith. Going through that fire, gave her a new relationship with God and a passion for sharing her story and giving hope to those that are hurting or feel rejected.
“I hope that my music can reach those who need to hear it the most. People who feel rejected, that no one cares. I am here to share that there is someone so awesome who cares. He is Love’s Sweet Salvation!”
