I am Christine Ray
I am a singer, first and foremost; it is in my blood, my bones, my DNA. It's my home, my solace, my comfort, however you describe it, it is what feeds my soul. I was born into a musical family, so I guess you could say singing chose me. When people ask the question "What do you do for a living?" the answer most people give is usually, an accountant, or lawyer or teacher. For a long time for me it was "paralegal." What you do is rarely equal to who you are, your fabric as a person. I am one of the lucky ones. I absolutely do what I love and I AM a singer.
I am a vegan. I don't eat a plant-based diet for health reasons, my choice is an ethical one. My life was forever changed by a sweet chug pup named Ringo and I immediately began making different choices, and not just about food. I began filling my house with beauty and cleaning products that were cruelty-free and vegan. Additionally, I began doing research on fashion companies that made ethical choices regarding human labor and sustainability. You see, I believe that life, ALL LIFE...animal life, human life, and the enduring life and health of our planet, should not be sacrificed for my food or fashion choices.
I am a yoga enthusiast. I grew up wanting to be a prima ballerina. Unfortunately, my dreams were dashed by my body limitations. As an adult I found yoga provided me the graceful movement and forgiveness my body needed, as well as the peace and inner reflection my neurotic mind required.
I am a travel junkie. I would rather be on a beach than anywhere but I also love walkable cities where you can walk and eat and drink and shop and just spend a day roaming the streets. Paris has my heart (and a tattoo on my arm).
I am sharing my passions with you here, all in one place, because we are all in this together. Let us edify, share, inspire, create, and be who we are...
I am Christine Ray.
