Rendezvous with… Christina Goh!

Christina Goh: A star is born!

Christina Goh is a gifted, French-born singer, songwriter and poet of Caribbean and African descent.

Her music mirrors her heritage – rich in French, African, West Indian and even oriental influences.

Christina’s self-penned lyrics are both vivid and profound – so it comes as no surprise to learn that she is also the author of an elegantly thought-provoking book of poetry, Le Chant des Coeurs.

And her voice is unique – soothing and energising in equal measures.

Beautiful Christina (30) was born in the 12th arrondissement in Paris to a Caribbean mother and African father. Even this cultural mix was not enough to satisfy her curiosity – Christina also found an interest in Indian and oriental cultures and music, to go with the French influences all around her.

“I feel very much part of this new generation for whom the world is a house, and other people are brothers and sisters, regardless of where they are or what they look like,” she says.

A trained journalist with a background in psychology studies, at the age of 23 Christina decided to drop everything else and focus on her true dream – a career in music.

“I made the decision that I was no longer going to listen to those who told me my dream was impossible. I needed to prove that it could be a reality – your dreams only come true if you believe in them enough to work hard to achieve them.”

And that’s exactly what Christina has been doing – working painstakingly to develop her craft, her performance skills, her profile.

She has spent the last seven years honing her vocals and song-writing talent, singing with both gospel and pop groups. She released the single Métisse chocolate in November 2007, and has since written and recorded a number of other songs.

Her new album is called Eveil (Awakening) and the video for its first cut, Réputation de peine, can be viewed on LingoLyrics courtesy of Christina, with the lyrics translated into (literal) English.

Christina spends her time between Paris and her beautiful mother island of Martinique in the Caribbean.
