At the age of 17, influenced by the music of Motown, Johnny Cash, Elvis, Tina Turner, Lauryn Hill, Novelli started fronting her own bands. In 2011 Novelli starred in a reality TV show on Channel 5 called Candy Bar Girls, a documentary series revealing the lives and loves of the staff and regulars at the world-famous Candy Bar in Soho, London. While on the show, Novelli could be seen performing a mix of her own material along with some covers, making them her own. Some of the songs she sang were Goo Goo Dolls', ‘Iris’, Damien Rice’s ‘Cannonball’ and Bruno Mars’ ‘Just the way you are.'
In early 2012, Novelli collaborated with producer and DJ Gareth Emery, on the track 'Concrete Angel' which she had co-written. By June of the same year, 'Concrete Angel' had entered the Billboard (magazine) at #15 on the 'Dance Music' charts, and currently has well over 30 million views on YouTube. Since then, Novelli has also collaborated with the likes of Dash Berlin and Armin Van Buuren. In December 2013, "Satellite" by Justin Caruso & Dave Audé featuring Christina Novelli, debuted as the #47 Dance Club Song in Billboard (magazine).
DJ career from 2013 to present
In 2013 Novelli began DJing all over the world including iconic venues LIV Miami, Pacha NYC, and Ultra Music Festival. Her DJ genre is house music, but she also plays hip-hop, trap, hard style, future bass and trance.
