Singer, Songwriter, Vocal Coach
Founder & Creative Director of XINNAMON Collective
CHRISTIANE MIKAELA is a professional singer-songwriter, live band coordinator, music consultant & vocal coach, armed with a mission to inspire those lost in the darkness and to develop meaningful values through music. Stepping into SG’s music scene in 1998, CHRISTIANE began performing & composing at the age of 5, going from humble beginnings in Singapore Symphony Orchestra’s recitals to stages around Southeast Asia such as Indonesia, Japan, Australia and even amongst tribes in Africa.
With her trademark “sultry pipes” (Straits Times), a “formidable voice that comes entwined with meaningfully written compositions” (JUICE Magazine), CHRISTIANE's originals are a unique blend of R&B/Soul and Latin/African influences that she calls tropicana spice. Since graduating with an Honours Degree in Psychology (2015) and Music Discipleship School with YWAM Perth (2016), CHRISTIANE has showcased her music at Singapore Jazz Festival, Singapore Night Festival, and collaborated with the National Arts Council, Singapore Show Choir Academy and Montreux Jazz Group to name a few. She has released singles in collaboration with Singapore International Foundation, NEA, independent producers in Sydney and Uganda, and is registered with COMPASS Singapore.
Be a light in the darkness. Impact your circle of influence.
Apart from being a prolific songwriter and musician, CHRISTIANE also has extensive performing and vocal coaching experience since 2012. She has coached a wide range of students in vocals & stage presence from 4 years old and above, in workshops and programs for both private and group settings (MOE-IRS Certified), and led numerous individuals as well as choirs to compete in the B-Dazzled! Show Choir competitions and SYF. Being a passionate writer and linguist, CHRISTIANE also holds a vast amount of experience in improvisational singing, poetry, hosting, modelling, acting in film/commercials & event coordination.
CHRISTIANE is an active member of the worship ministry in Church Of Our Saviour. She has a genuine heart for people, actively volunteering on Christian missions around the globe like in Nepal and Philippines, hoping to cultivate an empowered & Christ-centred mindset in children, youth and women especially after her own life was transformed by God. CHRISTIANE has also been involved in coordinating events like the annual EarthFest Singapore and causes like REACH’s youths at risk.
By drawing from her colourful life experiences and intertwining themes of overcoming strife into her music, CHRISTIANE aims to create an atmosphere of joy and vibrance that will empower her listeners. She believes that music can be a fun, positive avenue for individuals to discover or hone their latent talents, challenge themselves, strengthen their English skills, and most importantly, to pick up lasting & wholesome values. Not afraid to keep things vulnerable, CHRISTIANE hopes that her empowering music and disarming nature will be an honest and safe space for individuals to rediscover their fire and true North.
