Born: Kristina Vinson
Before Vinson's vocabulary existed she would sing melodies with her mother.
- At age 5, she performed for the first time at her elementary school talent show; Vinson sang, "From a distance" originally sung by Bette Midler. Then "Hero" by Mariah Carey.
As a highschool freshman (age 14) Kristina was approached by Ben Yurco, and Dave Stolarz to sing with their band (other members included; Garrett Dawson, and Rob Fenning). This was one of several musical experiences that would give Kristina the skill and freedom to perform the music she loved. Vinson performed with their band up until the guys graduated H.S. Later, she would perform with other local bands and talent too.
Local venues, NJ State Fair to West Minster Abbey in the UK, St. Patrick's Cathedral in Ireland both with the Lakeland Chorale and Chamber Singers, Roy Meyers Scholarship winner, two separate personal open invites from the in-house management to return solo to Carnegie Hall, various NJ League of Women Voters Fundraisers, The Bitter End in NYC, plus so much more.
