Christine Best & The Pics

Christine Best

Christine Best’s voice is a force of nature. Her passion for music was ignited at the age of two and developed during many evenings singing with her music-loving family after dinner. In 2001, she finally decided to fulfill her childhood dream to become a singer, so she founded the Universal Gospel Choir where she became an advanced soloist performing with greats Linda Tillery, John Boutte, Tom Cochrane, and Jim Byrnes to name but a few. She has performed and recorded with a number of local Vancou- ver artists, including the Paperboys, Harry Manx, and Jimmy Zee, and she has also appeared on television, radio, and most frequently with her own bands, ‘Christine BEST & the Pics’, ‘The Favourites’ and ‘The VANDIVAS’.
