CONTESTANTS: SEASON 6Christina Bianco
HOMETOWN: New York, NY
Thrilling pre-schoolers as Dora The Explorer in a live nationwide tour might be enough for some performers – but not Christina Bianco.
At 5 feet tall, this pint-sized powerhouse began her professional career at age 8, opposite children’s singer “Raffi in Raffi” On Broadway at the Gershwin Theatre. A graduate of New York University, she has sung back up for Deborah Cox and been nominated for a 2009 Drama Desk Award for her role in “Forbidden Broadway Goes To Rehab.”
On a professional biography, Christina – who currently stars in “Newsical: The Musical” at the 47th Street Theatre – lists puppetry, opera and eyebrow acrobatics as special skills.
