Christina Simos - #LoveisLove (Single)

What you see is what you get with Christina Simos. This singer/songwriter is a throwback from the 70’s. She sings from her heart and writes with her soul. Her songs chronicle her life—all the good, bad, and dramatic. Born in Jamaica, Queens, New York, with an instinctive feel for catchy, soulful grooves, Christina’s music is an infusion of R & B, dance, pop, rock, and soul. Her lyrics are emotionally honest, sassy, and heartfelt. “It’s all about the journey,” Christina says. “It’s about empowerment, connecting with others, finding your place, and shining your light.” It’s in her DNA to be on stage performing, but it wasn’t until she graduated from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism at Arizona State University (ASU) that she realized how true that was. She says, “I was a woman of many firsts. I was the first of my generation in my family to go to college. I was the first female minority opinion editor at my college newspaper and one of the few female minority sports reporters in the business at that time.” Christina was also one of the first students to report the news and become the news. She adds, “Our campus was dealing with racial unrest and homophobia among other issues that are typical for college. I made it my mission to unify and educate people about these issues.”
