Her name is
Gina (Whitney)...a native of Johnstown, Ohio... now MAKING her
home in Southern California..
Shes the daughter of a championship yodeler.
Shes an actress.
Shes a music teacher.
And today, shes doing what she has always been destined to do:
SING, Gina admits, I began to realize I probably liked singing so much because I was simply returning to my roots."
Attending the University of Southern California on a full scholarship, Gina was only 17....among the youngest accepted...when she started to study drama at USC, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and a minor in music-and a pocket full o dreams! Hoping to pursue a professional career in musical theatre. Gina worked hard at breaking into the business. She auditioned at every opportunity. And she added some impressive accomplishments to her credits, including a movie role as a TV newscaster, many industrial films, numerous TV appearances including the Soap Days of Our Lives, and various commercials.
These days, Gina studies with a vocal coach every week and shes working hard at learning the craft of song writing. Even if I dont make it as a big star, she says, I intend to give it my ALL, because I truly believe the journey is much more important than the destination.
When shes at home in California, Gina still enjoys entering talent contests. She still sings in her church choir...as she has done for the past 10 years...and still finds time to teach the childrens choir. Gina is the proud mother of two beautiful daughters.
As a singer, Gina often performs at radio station functions, and for benefit concerts in her home town in Ohio. She also performs with her band Gina and the Bootleggers, at Southern California and Laughlin, NV clubs. Shes sold out a Showcase at the World Famous Crazy Horse Saloon and won the Battle of the Bands contest at The Boogie in Anaheim, CA. Gina continues to record in Nashville as well as Los Angeles.
Her life is obviously busy. Her days are already full. However, her sights are set on singing. . So, you might as well fire-up the jukebox. Ginas gonna getcha!
