Christall has lived a colourful life thus far, and this inspiration is reflected in her music. She certainly has her feet on the ground, but one thing is “Christall” clear! She is always reaching for the stars!
Christall, a star of The Real Housewives of Johannesburg, (1 Magic Dstv channel 103) showcases her journey as an artist and the viewers will get a chance to know her music – and her pop single Wonder. The first sneak peek of her music will be revealed on Friday’s episode, 17 August.
The final version of her song Wonder has been produced by US producers The Klubjumpers who have remixed tracks for stars like Ricky Martin, Britney Spears and Jason Derulo to name but a few.
The song was inspired by Christall’s curiosity with all things mysterious which makes her wonder about the Great Wall of China, and the Statues in Rome and so forth, however the irony is that your lover/partner can make you wonder even more than the great mysteries of the universe. Let’s face it love can make us crazy!
Christall’s first single Set Apart, has already enjoyed much success both locally, and In the US, where it charted at no. 55 on the Billboard/Nielsen Airplay US charts. Christall’s songs have been played on over 30 radio stations across South Africa from small town community radio stations and retail radio stations to regional radio stations such as JacarandaFM and Radio Sonder Grense. Christall has performed in a number of festivals, shows and concerts countrywide. Her house, lifestyle and music have also been featured on a well-known South African television variety show, namely, Top Billing.
In the last few years she has worked with top voice coaches Kyl’e Adcock, June Kraus –Von Trebitsch and Lindy Joubert who have aided in bringing out further textures and nuances in Christall’s velvet voice.
As a songwriter, Christall has developed her talent. Christall’s clearly crafted melodies with a clever lyrical structure are certainly what hit songs are made of, and the fine-tuning of her craft no doubt makes all the difference to the songs that Christall writes.
Christall has always been involved in music projects some of which include collaborating with Afro-pop band Seed and showcasing her talent with them to Warner Bros Record Company. Christall has also made a number of corporate appearances, including events like the annual Nedbank Green Day.
Christall’s combination of pop and dance merge to create an electrifying sound that beautifully showcases her uplifting voice. Christall’s songs will with no doubt provide inspiration, motivation and a beautiful way of looking at life.
The first ever local version of The Real Housewives of Johannesburg is on 1Magic, DStv channel 103 on Fridays at 19:00.
