HAVE YOURSELF A MERRY LITTLE CHRISTMAS

Growing up in Canada, and at the age of sixteen, her performance on a Canadian television show caught the eye of none other than Celine Dion. The world-renowned diva went on to ask Karine to perform at her wedding.
“That was really the start,” she recalls. “It was such an incredible moment, and I was driven to pursue this endlessly to fulfill my dreams as a world-class singer.”
Karine relocated to New York City. Within weeks of moving to the Big Apple, she linked up with none other than Jim Steinman (Meat Loaf, “Bat Out Of Hell”) and began collaborating with him. For the next few years, nearly every major label courted her, but she didn’t find a home until Cash Money Records/Republic Records/Universal Music co-founders Ronald “Slim” Williams and Bryan “Baby” Williams heard a recording from her in their lawyer’s office and signed her.
“It happened at a time when I least expected it,” the songstress continues. “I’d been working so hard for so long, and then Cash Money came into the picture.”
Their partnership kicked off with Karine’s incendiary debut single “Burning Up,” co-written and produced by Josh Harris. Climbing the Billboard charts and making it all the way to number five.
That’s only a prelude to what followed. Her next single co-written by Michael Jay called “Victory” landed in the top 10 on the Billboard charts.
Karine nods her vocal influences to legends such as Gladys Knight, Patti LaBelle, Jennifer Holiday, and as well as French and European artists she heard on the radio as a child. As a result, she’s got something completely her own and electrifying.
“I grew up with 4 sides of music…French, Canadian, American, and Euro,” she says. “I want to embrace all of that in my own music.”
Ultimately, Karine stands poised to capture the world’s attention with her voice. “I want people to feel something massive in their soul after listening to me interpret a song, whether it’s an original or a cover tune,” I sing from the soul, and I hope it reaches listeners.”
In 2022, Karine signed a new management deal with Heart Songs Music Group.
