Name: Christina Holly Pasion also known as Pasion
I have been singing since the age of 6 years old. However, I decided to turn this loving hobby into a career just two years ago. I was introduced to producer, Justin Stowar a.k.a “Sydney Johnson” through a mutual friend at a party where he had first heard my voice and invited me into his studio. This is where my 2014 single “Stay with me” was created. After such a great outcome of my first ever original, I realized that I had such a growing passion for music that I had to turn it into a career. Since then I’ve been blessed with countless opportunities for success and I am excited for my career path.
What motivates or inspires you in your work?
Recently, I have been writing a lot about past experiences, how they made me feel, or what I’ve learned. Mostly though, almost everything inspires me. From the smell of fresh air in the morning, people’s actions on public transit, to even unfortunate events like an argument or death.
In my belief, to be involved in the entertainment industry takes a lot of focus and hard work. It is common for artist to get side tracked emotionally or physically especially in such a competitive world. My personal work philosophy is to “work hard but not hard to the point where you feel you are working” At the end of the day, one of the reasons I choose music as a career is because I get to share it with the world and give myself a voice and if at any point that gesture begins to feel diminished or tainted. I know that is when I am working for work and not working for a passion or for the love of music. Also, balance is key.
If you weren’t doing this, what could you see yourself doing?
If I myself were not an artist. I would still imagine me working within the music industry whether it were coaching other artists, being an ambassador of a successful company such as: Universal, Sony etc. That is where I would have to place myself, I just have so much love for music and entertainment I cannot imagine myself in any other industry.
Presently I am working on a song called “Memories” & “Be Well”
What do you first notice about a guy?
I think it’s fair to admit that the first thing any woman notices about a guy is whether they are attractive or not and this comes down to the way they dress to their facial features, to the way they walk, height and shoes! Don’t forget the shoes… it says a lot about a guy
What gets you interested?
Personally I have a thing for that confident yet shy type guy that almost exudes a sense of wonder or mystery but has very polite manners.
LOVE me a funny guy, definitely if you want to keep my interest crack me a joke once and a while. However, what truly lasts in my heart is someone with a good heart and understanding of empathy.
What’s your number one deal breaker (either on first meeting or in a relationship)?
If you are beyond cocky I probably won’t call you again and hopefully your personal hygiene is up to date.
Kisses on the neck, manners, surprise adventures.
Obnoxious fart or burps, attitude, laziness.
I like to low carb in the early week and high carb past hump day (Wednesday) just because I do a lot more physical activity on the weekends so it allows me to burn more calories. I’m also anemic (iron deficient) so if your taking me on a date make sure to buy me a steak haha, and of course daily intake of fruits and veggies.
What sort of fitness plan, if any, do you follow?
I teach Zumba once a week and also dance on the side so in terms of cardio I get a lot of that in my routine. A side from that I do three reps of one hundred squats a day and a twenty minute ab workout.
What’s next for you? What’s your next big idea or project?
I hope to release an EP by the end of summer. I am also aiming to release another 2 video’s before the start of November
