Christine B. is the mastermind behind BVIP Entertainment. A professional recording artist / producer / actress, she brings the sounds of New England across the nation, as well as other parts of the world. She is a fierce woman with a striking mixed ethnicity. With a 3.5 vocal octave range, her heart-felt musicianship delivers a solid performance each and every time. Professionally trained in classical, jazz, opera, and musical theatre vocal styles, Christine developed a silky-smooth, neo-soul vibe fused with pure raw, edgy soul; a unique sound which is hard to dub. She has worked with some of the best artists from around the world, and her production skills have reached as far as Germany, London, Italy, Japan, and Russia.
