Christie Chong

Christie Chong is a contemporary Christian singer-songwriter and producer. She grew up playing classical piano and soon after discovered her love for singing. She always knew that God was calling her to use her music to glorify Him and to serve His Kingdom.

To better use and stretch her musical giftings, she enrolled at the Berklee College of Music to study voice as well as Contemporary Writing and Production. There, she learned the tools and skills needed to create and produce the songs that were on her heart.

Her philosophy on Worship comes from John 4:24 -- no matter what musical form it takes on, we must worship in "spirit and in truth." In our worship of God, both Spirit-filled passion and sound Biblical doctrine should be present, exercising both the heart and the mind.

The musical styles that resonate most with Christie are Pop/R&B and Gospel. So her challenge is always how to create worship music that is contemporary, catchy, and universally accessible, while also being personally authentic and theologically rich. To that end, she has written an 11-song contemporary Christian album that aims to use the powerful tools of contemporary music to freshly portray the life-giving message of the gospel and what it means to walk the Christian life with the hope of eternity.

Currently Christie resides in Los Angeles, CA where she stays active in the music industry as a composer and background vocalist while being married to her husband, Albert, and chasing after her two toddler daughters.
