As a child, Christa Borden spent much time performing in public. Starting out singing folk songs and musical theatre and in her teens, operatic repertoire, she won many awards and scholarships from the St. John's Kiwanis Music Festival for both Piano and Voice. She was the runner-up in the Junior Rose Bowl in 1997, and then she landed her first lead role later that year as Anne Shirley in the Peter McDonald production of Anne of Green Gables.

In 1998, she won the Miss Teen Newfoundland and Labrador pageant.

In 1998 she attended Memorial University's Music School studying Voice. During this time she seriously studied the more classical forms of singing from early music to opera to cabaret. She graduated in 2003 with a Bachelor of Music degree in Vocal Performance.

Since April 2003, she has continued performing and has been collaborating with other songwriters and musicians. She appeared on the cover of numerous local and national magazines, toured the province with fellow singer/songwriters Jackie Sullivan and Jacinda Beals, and performed in "Our Divas do Broadway" at Mile One Stadium in 2004.

In 2006, she guest-starred on the CBC Television series Hatching, Matching and Dispatching.

Christa opened for Aerosmith in July 2007 at the CDPEC in Charlottetown, PEI.

Her Debut CD I Rhyme With Orange, Produced by Jeff Trott, with six (6) tracks mixed by Bob Clearmountain, is scheduled for a Fall 2009 release.
