Love Reality

Charmaine | in:ciite

Charmaine grew up
traveling the world with her parents in music ministry. When she was
11, she dedicated her life to Jesus and to being a music evangelist.
As a music hopeful in her teens, she was discovered by David
Smallbone, Rebecca St. James’ father and manager. He invited her to
record a project under his label and tour with St. James. After seven
years, Charmaine knew it was time to step out on her own.

While living in
Nashville, Tenn., and no
t touring, she concentrated on songwriting.
Eventually she was offered a chance to create her own album. The
result is
Love Reality.
“This record reflects all the things I am truly convicted of: love
is the real reality; God is good, and because of that, there is
hope,” Charmaine says.

Charmaine’s clever
and fresh music combines orchestral pop sounds as well as electronic
beats, and showcases a voice that is unmistakably her own.
