The Grow up Singing Collective
How to support our project
What do the professionals think?
Artists who have collaborated with us:
Karina is an amazing singer and an inspiration. It was a gift that she agreed to collaborate with us and we are immensely grateful that she is now part of our collective and shares the same passion for music as we do. To listen her voice singing our song The funky seasons is a real pleasure.
Hailing from Washington Heights, NYC, Karina Pasian is a natural-born performer and classically trained pianist/vocalist since the age of three. Karina’s career took off when Quincy Jones invited her to perform for him at his Bel-Air home. At twelve years old, she performed The Prayer with Andrea Bocelli at Quincy’s “We Are the Future” concert in Rome, and by the time she was fifteen years old, she was invited to perform at The White House for President George W. Bush in celebration of Black Music Month.
Karina quickly garnered the attention of industry heavyweights early on, resulting in a major-label bidding war between Bad Boy Records, Interscope Records, and Def Jam. She ultimately signed with Island/Def Jam Recordings through Jay-Z and L.A. Reid. In 2008, Karina released her first single 16 @ War, which entered the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. Her debut album First Loveeventually earned her a Grammy Nomination for Best Contemporary R&B Album.
In 2021, the artist entered the TV music contest The Voice Spain as part of Alejandro Sanz’s team. Karina became a finalist and one of the seasons favorite.
