Midem 2012 will go down in music history as the year that the industry finally discovered Christine Sparks.  World Champion Motivational Speaker and renowned Scottish folk singer and guru, Watt Nichol, said this of Christine’s voice:
“Christine has the quality of voice that Burns’ words deserve. Both are masters of exposing raw, natural emotion, creating timeless masterpieces. I have shared her voice with a number of people who are aware of perfection in the human voice and all agree that Christine is as good as it gets.”
Christine is constantly creating and writing.
