has been a pleasure working with Christina on multiple projects
for In My Backpack.
had the opportunity to take pictures at several of her performances
in Connecticut a few years ago. This material produced the shots
included in Christinaís
Photo Gallery on our site.
in March of 2015, we completed Christinaís
Interview project and got it posted here.
now, she has been kind enough to answer a few questions for our
March 2016 Anniversary ďCatching up withÖĒ segments.

know youíve been incredibly busy lately on stage and off. What
are some of the things you have been doing recently? And, what
parts have been the most fulfilling that many people may not be
aware of but are very exciting for you?
recently added Taylor Swift to my list of artists that I impersonate.
It really has been fun to impersonate her! I enjoy the fact that
we both have long, skinny arms and similar body types, and itís
fun to be awkward on stage like her! With Taylor I can wear anything
of hers and feel confident that I am portraying the correct image
and body type. Normally when I do Britney or Gaga I have to cover
my body with long-sleeved costumes because Iím not shaped like
also just got done performing on a cruise ship this past September-November.
I performed as Lady Gaga and Christina in two different production
shows. It has been a dream of mine to perform on a ship, so I
am very blessed to have had the experience and would do it again.
we noted during our interview, your tribute efforts feature some
of the most incredible performers around. Do you find that demand
varies depending on their specific activities and professional
efforts such as a new release? Or, are they so well-known and
woven into the fabric of entertainment that there is a balance
in the requests regardless of who might be on TV or radio at the
demand for each of my artists comes and goes. Right now, Lady
Gaga and Taylor are very popular. Faith Hill hasnít been in the
spotlight in a few years, so unfortunately I havenít been getting
calls for her. Christina Aguilera is on and off of The Voice,
so that helps when sheís on the show. But she really hasnít had
any new music out in years. Britney is always popular, but I donít
resemble Britney as much as my other acts, so I prefer to be performing
as Britney than doing meet and greet gigs as her.
are some of the projects you are currently working on? (How can
people find out more about them?)
been working a lot on booking acts as well as performing.
had some great events this month at various locations booking
dancers, models, impersonators, magicians and DJs. Most of the
gigs I do in town are private events and corporate gigs, so itís
really hard to invite my friends to come see me perform. But when
I am performing somewhere public I always post it on my Facebook

want to express my appreciation to Christina for all of her assistance
and support over the years. Iím honored that she includes some
of our pictures on her web site, and even links back here to In
Thank you, Christina,
you are amazing, and we appreciate your thoughts and kindness.
She mentioned her
Facebook page as the primary way to find out information for her,
and we can tell you that she is very active there and it works
as the most likely source for getting current news, announcements,
and anything that is some kind of immediate release. Having said
that, she is incredibly active in social media, and maintains
content on several sites. Please check some of them outÖ
