Ali and Christina: Talk about talent!
America got to know Ali and Christina, from Idaho Falls, Idaho, a little better when they were contestants on America’s Got Talent in 2010.
“It was like no other experience,” Christina says. In addition to hearing their beautiful voices week after week, the country also learned about Ali and Christina’s uphill battle. Ali, 22, and Christina, 15, were both diagnosed with cystic fibrosis, a genetic lung disease, when they were young. They undergo treatment daily to deal with their disease, but they’re determined to not let CF stand in their way.
With a singing teacher for a mom, Ali and Christina have been surrounded by music since they were little—and they’ve been dedicated to it for as long as they can remember.
Although the girls didn’t win, they did hit a 24-city tour
with the other top 10 contestants, and spent their time enjoying the sights and
getting a taste of what they hope their future holds. So far, they’ve released
the music video for “Something About Me”—a GL exclusive (watch it HERE).
“We hope this song brings awareness to Cystic Fibrosis
because not a lot of people are familiar with the disease,” says Ali. “We want
this song to inspire people, whether it’s someone who has Cystic Fibrosis or
someone with a different challenge or struggle.”
