Kristina Love was born in Cincinnati, Ohio and raised in Houston Texas. Coming from a musical family, she discovered a love for performing at a very young age. At the age of two, she began singing gospel in her church, and at the age of eleven years old, her family moved to Houston Texas, where she began to study classical music. She began to compete and represent the state of Texas on a national level in choral competitions which subsequently led her to discover musical theatre. Finding a home on the stage, she represented the United States on an international level in theatre competitions, to be discovered and recruited by some of the top Universities in the US. After being awarded a Bill and Melinda Gates Millennium Scholarship for academics, she chose to pursue her studies at the University of Oklahoma where she would study for four years, graduating with Honors and receiving a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Musical Theatre Performance. Upon graduation, she relocated to Germany where she has had the privilege of working and performing in the ensembles of Dirty Dancing, the World Premiere cast of Rocky the Musical (swing), Sister Act (Deloris van Cartier), and the European Premiere Cast of Disney’s Aladdin (Fortune Teller) and The Hunchback of Notre Dame (Florika, u.s. Esmeralda). Her breakout role came when she was charged with playing the title role in the first non-english version of Tina the Musical in Hamburg Germany. She most recently appeared as a soloist with the ORF Symphony Orchestra, honoring Alan Menken and his accomplishments in Hollywood in a fundraiser Gala for the Make a Wish Foundation in Vienna, Austria. She is also a guest artist and ambassador at work with UNICEF in Germany, and a writing contributor for an online inspirational platform Milk and Honey based out of London. Having come from a very humble upbringing, she has dedicated a huge part of her life to combatting educational inequality, racial injustice, sex/human-trafficking, and is passionate to lending a hand wherever possible.
She is so excited and humbled to be making her debut in Tina on the West End.
