Early life

Chalhoub was born to Lebanese parents and raised in Ottawa, Ontario. She joined her school's choir as a second-grader, and wrote her first song in third grade. She continued to write poems and setting them to music, and at 12 she participated in talent shows in Ottawa and spent time in local studios recording demos. She also enrolled in dance classes and took formal lessons at the Canadian Conservatory of Music in Ottawa singing in many styles, from pop to opera to R&B. She graduated from Garneau High School.[2]

With her mother acting as her manager, Kristina performed at state fairs and exhibitions. In 2005, her vocal coach put her in a group named The Showstoppers with seven other girls and sent them to Florida to sing medleys of ABBA songs and Motown hits at theme parks, including Disney World, Universal Studios and SeaWorld.
