Callie is back to fight for the DIVA crown once again! She is born and raised in downtown Juneau and sings every song with the heart of a true Alaskan! When not singing, Callie can be found in a Montessori classroom, at UAS, playing ice hockey at Treadwell, jumping into Gastineau Channel in heels, or let’s be real here – catching up with her Netflix or Hulu! She is your own personal downtown darling and ready to rock the stage for the crown (and raise $$ for Juneau Lyrics Opera!)
Alaska’s Kit is excited to be back again for the Diva extravaganza that is Who’s Your Diva! Kit can’t wait to share the stage with some familiar Diva faces, as well as watching some new fun characters show this town what they have to offer. As a fourth generation Juneauite, Kit enjoys the artistic environment this town has to offer and thanks her family, friends, and her fans for their constant continued support! After turning her back on music for awhile, Kit is back and here to stay in full rising force! Kit’s whole performance will be about proving she is back and ready to share her music with the world. See you at the performance! It’s sure to be another spectacular night that Kit and her audience will never forget!
Vote for Alaska’s Kit!
Hannah was blessed to be born into a musical family, & started singing at age five in the Santa Rosa children’s choir in California where she remembers the thrill of singing into the microphone! She’s been hooked ever since! When she isn’t busy being a stage DIVA, she is either singing lullabies to her beautiful son Oliver, or belting it out in church, the car, shower, you name it. Hannah gets inspired by soulful artists like Aretha Franklin, Al Green, & Beyoncé, she also confides she can’t help but love a good Disney tune! She is ecstatic for the opportunity to sing for you, & hopes to win some votes, raise some money for JLO and have some FUN!
Born and raised in Bowie, Maryland..moved to Juneau two years ago. She has been singing since age 15 in various choirs. Jocelyn’s love of music has been in inspired by greats such as Whitney houston, Aretha Franklin and Jocelyn Brown but she has eclectic taste and can belt out country and jazz. By day she sells insurance by night she is a voice diva. Thank you for the opportunity to raise money for a worthy cause like JLO. Vote for this spunky diva!
Katrina has been singing all her life but it’s just been in the last five years that she’s been doing it in front of an audience, instead of in the shower or traipsing through the living room singing Mamma Mia. Hurricane discovered that she’s a force of nature when she performed in her first cabaret. She’s been in 4 others since then as well as finding harmony in Pride Chorus. A hurricane’s a’comin! Vote or take cover!
Kristina is absolutely thrilled to be a Diva this fall! She was born and raised in Juneau and has always had an innate love for music. This accountant-by-day, musician-by-night loves to sing a cappella with her fellow Alaskapellicans, play French horn in the Juneau Symphony, and perform in as many different venues with as many different styles of music as she can throughout the year. This season will be a busy one, packed with everything from a Brahms symphony to a trip to Carnegie Hall, and Kristina is delighted to be starting it off with this wonderful opportunity to sing with the Divas!
Libby is One Hot Mess, and Who’s Your Diva 2015 will mark the first time she’s sung in public without a karaoke machine. Her diva-handler, Geoff Kirsch, will provide comic relief and moral support. When not singing in the shower, Libby can be found eating, sleeping, working, blogging, yelling at her children, and impulsively agreeing to impossible things like singing on stage in front of hundreds of people. Vote for the underdiva!
Returning Diva Sandy joined the Juneau music scene six years ago. She spends her days encouraging musicians of all ages to bring out their inner divas at Impassion Music Studio and her nights singing and dancing with her youngest diva, two-year-old daughter Nora.
Sandy will be adding another diva/divo to the world in January. Double your investment – your vote for Sandy is a vote for TWO divas!
Sophie has been being forcibly removed from the stage since the age of three, when she charged (uninvited) on stage to interpretively dance to her sister’s vocal performance. When she isn’t performing as a diva, she’s playing with her band Flustered Cluckers or at home DIYing anything she can get her hands on (and her husband won’t miss). Sophie is tremendously honored to be singing with the DIVAs this year and hopes you’ll support JLO and put your money where her voice is.
