THAT FACE (Christine Samson)

From the site of Christine Samson Music and Arts Studio:
Christine debut in the music arena began at a very early age when she and her brothers and sisters formed a family band in the 60’s called D’Topnotes. With Christine as lead vocalist, bassist and keyboardist, D’Topnotes captured the hearts and minds of audiences all over the world, including South America, the U.S, Canada and Asia. Their success on stage, television and radio brought them prominent world recognition, awards and recording deals with some of the top record labels of that time.
In the 1980s, Christine along with her two sisters, Vikki and Lizzie, continued to wow audiences as The Samson Sisters trio. With their smooth vocal harmonies, onstage charisma and inspirational performances, The Samson Sisters elevated the standards of the Hong Kong pop music industry. Their performances, forever etched into the fabric of Hong Kong's pop culture history, are still fondly remembered today.
Christine has also enjoyed an outstanding solo career as a performer and recording artist. She has represented Hong Kong in international song contests, performed extensively as a special guest singer in popular variety shows, and has recorded countless tracks for TV commercials. Her repertoire includes songs in English, Cantonese, Mandarin, Spanish, Tagalog and Japanese, and covers all genres of music.
