Christina England-Hale is a classically trained singer born in Logan, Utah in 1982. Starting out in the Cache Children's Choir, she has been performing since she was five years of age. Commencing private voice lessons at age 9, she has been studying and singing ever since. Her first album, "Be Still, My Soul", was released in 2000. It made the Deseret Book top ten bestseller's list during its first month of release.[1] In the same year she graduated from Logan High School. Her follow-up album was titled "Oh, That I Were An Angel" released in 2003. She also frequently performs in musical theatre productions. Christina still resides in her home town of Logan. She was married in 2001 and has three children.

Prominence[edit]

Perhaps her most well-known work is an arrangement of Schubert's "Ave Maria" from her debut album which featured on the theatrical trailer for the 2007 film Hitman. For the actual film, an electronic arrangement by Geoff Zanelli was laid over the opening titles. The trailer for "Hitman" can be viewed by following the link below

Musical style[edit]

Her soft angelic voice and vocal style has been compared to that of Welsh opera singer Charlotte Church and Sarah Brightman.[2] Her music ranges from classical opera pieces to Christian hymns and although Christina enjoys singing all types of music, classical is her favorite.
