On graduating Chrissy diversified from her classical training and began working with her sister Ann, as cabaret duo 'Intuition' they travelled the world together, and for three years were backing singers for Greek star Demis Roussos.
Not satisfied being part of the back line Chrissy decided upon a solo career and accepted a contract in Johannesburg South Africa. Within 6 weeks in SA she was snapped up by EMI records and was playing a lead in role in 'Jerry's Girls' on the theatre circuit. More musical theatre followed, Phantom, Music of the Night, Let's Do It, Abba the musical, Evita and J.C superstar.
TV appearances and recording kept Chrissy a popular performer in Southern Africa. She was chosen to open the International A.I.D.S conference where she sang before 60 heads of state and shared the stage with Nelson Mandela.
During the past year Chrissy has been travelling around the globe, working in Theatres, casinos, hotels and cruise ships including corporate and charity functions. Working with her Italian musical director, she completed the summer 2011 season for Thompson Gold International hotels throughout Europe, the shows proved so successful they often received a standing ovation, which resulted in many repeat bookings. More than forty international dates performed, in the past ten months.

She is now available to accept bookings for summer 2014.
She was introduced by Pierce Brosnan (James Bond) at the Miss World pageant seen by 60 million people live from Sun City, with George Benson Grace Jones, and Vanessa Williams. A chance meeting with a top Italian record producer led to dance chart success in 2004, Chrissy's songs reached the European dance charts regularly, including a NO 1 in Ibiza.
Chrissy left Africa in 2001 and relocated with partner Alessandro to Italy. She won a prestigious music award in Salerno and performed several concerts with Carl Anderson in 2005/6 under Maestro Kevin Farrell. Invited to appear at the famed Ravello festival and on the classical Villa Rufolo stage Chrissy performed the Richard Rogers Centenary concert with a full symphony orchestra.
