Biography

* * * SINGER/SONGWRITER KRISTINE DELIVERS NEW MUSIC FOR THE HOLIDAY SEASON * * *

Singer/Songwriter Kristine (aka Kristine Trigg) delivers new music for the Holiday Season. Entitled HOME FOR CHRISTMAS, the new release features CHRISTMAS DAY and HOME FOR CHRISTMAS, two original Christmas songs written by Kristine and her husband Stephan Trigg. A third song, I'VE GOT SOMETHING TO SING ABOUT, also penned by Kristine and Stephan Trigg, is the first single off of Kristine's new full-length album to be released in 2012.

HOME FOR CHRISTMAS is a gift from Kristine to everyone celebrating the joy of the holiday season and is especially presented to our service men and women all around the world. "9/11 changed the lives of people everywhere" explains Kristine, "I was forever changed that day. All of a sudden we became a nation united and a country at war. With a heavy heart, I watched as the troops said goodbye to their loved ones and headed off to fight for us all. I kept thinking, 'what can I do?' Excited about the recent announcement of the end to the war, I wrote, recorded and am releasing HOME FOR CHRISTMAS, the CD and ballad that celebrates our troops finally coming home for Christmas. I understand that many will never make it home again; they will remain in our memories and our hearts forever . . . every single one a hero. I pray this song and this CD blesses you and gives you comfort as you celebrate and remember . . . Home For Christmas!”

Kristine, formerly on the Malaco Records imprint J-TOWN Records, enjoyed Billboard chart success in the late '90s. Kristine is known as the girl with the golden voice and the million dollar smile. Her 'golden' voice remains unmistakably powerful, robust, and angelic; reminding fans and listeners of Yolanda Adams, Mariah Carey, Christina Aguilera and Whitney Houston. And, her 'million dollar smile' still shines bright. She has performed live for many during her solo and chorale careers, including President Ronald Reagan, President Jimmy Carter, Bishop Desmond Tutu, Rev. Jesse Jackson, Nancy Wilson, and Harry Belafonte to name a few. When nationally syndicated radio talk show host, Tom Joyner, heard Kristine sing one of her original songs live in Atlanta, Georgia, he said, "That girl can sing and I love that song."

HOME FOR CHRISTMAS is available online at iTunes, CDBaby, and Amazon.com.

Lyrics

Christmas Day

Written By: Kristine Jones, Stephan Trigg

Verse 1
Born in a manger low, a little baby wrapped in swaddling clothes
The tiny baby child made Mary and Joseph smile
But little did they know what they would behold.
Following the bright star, many people came from near and far
To see the baby boy that would bring the world joy
Sent from heaven to earth on Christmas

Chorus
Christmas Day, He made it Christmas Day
He came down from above, to show us His love,
Celebrate His birth on Christmas
Christmas Day, He made it Christmas Day
He brought love and harmony, for us to live in peace
Celebrate His birth on Christmas

Verse 2
Three wise men, they brought gifts to show their love for him
He came from above, to show us his love,
To save you and me so we could be free
And now we celebrate, we celebrate the joy of Christmas day
Jesus was born this world will never be the same
Celebrate His birth on Christmas

Chorus
Christmas Day, He made it Christmas Day
He came down from above, to show us His love,
Celebrate His birth on Christmas
Christmas Day, He made it Christmas Day
He brought love and harmony, for us to live in peace
Celebrate His birth on Christmas

Change
Nobody knew the miracles He would perform
Who could imagine so much joy
All from a baby, a boy child being born
Sent from heaven to earth on Christmas

Chorus
Christmas Day, He made it Christmas Day
He came down from above, to show us His love,
Celebrate His birth on Christmas
Christmas Day, He made it Christmas Day
He brought love and harmony, for us to live in peace
Celebrate His birth on Christmas

Chorus
Christmas Day, He made it Christmas Day
He came down from above, to show us His love,
Celebrate His birth on Christmas
Christmas Day, He made it Christmas Day
He brought love and harmony, for us to live in peace
Celebrate His birth on Christmas

Oooh Merry Christmas, have a Merry Christmas...

I've Got Something To Sing About

Written By: Kristine Trigg, Stephan Trigg

Chorus
I’ve got something to sing about
I’ve got something to dance about
I’ve got something to shout about
C’mon everybody and sing it out.

I’ve got something to sing about
I’ve got something to dance about
I’ve got something to shout about
C’mon everybody and sing it out.

Verse 1
You came into my life and you
Changed me, rearranged me.
You too my stress and strive and
You calmed me, disarmed me.
Now I can sing, now I can shout,
Now I can dance, Cause you gave me something to sing about

Chorus
I’ve got something to sing about
I’ve got something to dance about
I’ve got something to shout about
C’mon everybody and sing it out.

Verse 2
You tore down walls of insecurity
And you saved me
You showed me what was true
And I love that, about you
Cmon and sing, c’mon and shout, c’mon and dance
Cause I’ve got something to sing about

Chorus
I’ve got something to sing about
I’ve got something to dance about
I’ve got something to shout about
C’mon everybody and sing it out.

Change
Have you ever had something, something you can sing about
Have you ever had something, something you can shout about
Have you ever had something, something you can dance about
Have you ever had something, something you can shout about!

Chorus
I’ve got something to sing about
I’ve got something to dance about
I’ve got something to shout about
C’mon everybody and sing it out.

Home For Christmas

Written By: Kristine Jones, Stephan Trigg


Don’t cry for me on Christmas
Don’t shed a tear for me
I’ll be home for Christmas
Cause that’s where I want to be
In my heart I’m home for Christmas
Standing by the tree
In my mind I’m home for Christmas
Cause that’s where I want to be
In my heart I’m home for Christmas
Cause that’s where I long to be.

I’ll be home for Christmas
Say a prayer for me
Just think of me on Christmas
And my face is what you’ll see
In my heart I’m home for Christmas
Making brand new memories
In my mind I’m home for Christmas
Cause that’s where I want to be
In my heart I’m home for Christmas
Cause that’s where I long to be.
(Look for me I'll be home, I'll be home for Christmas)
