PRESENTED BY BECCA FLEMING
When Christine Albert gives someone her business card these days, she has a choice to make. After almost four decades making her living as a singer/songwriter, the Austin, Texas-based musician has evolved into an artist whose philanthropic work is at the core of who she is.
Since 2007, she has served on the national Board of Trustees of The Recording Academy® (the 20,000 member organization that puts on the GRAMMY Awards®). She has risen to the top elected leadership position – Chairman of the Board – the first independent artist and only the second woman to do so.
Additionally, in 2005 Christine founded Swan Songs, an Austin area non-profit that fulfills musical last wishes by organizing private concerts for individuals with a terminal illness. Christine guides the organization as President and primary spokesperson.
That is Christine’s philanthropic side; then there’s the matter of the “artiste.” You can see where the multiple business cards come in.
Christine still takes the stage both as a solo artist and as one half of the powerful folk/Americana duo Albert and Gage, in which she co-stars with husband and musician extraordinaire Chris Gage – bringing an energetic mix of originals, covers by Texas songwriter friends and show-stopping Edith Piaf chansons (in French, no less!) to audiences across Texas, the US and overseas.
