The gorgeous and talented sisters, Ali & Christina
Christensen, who captured America's hearts in the 2010 season of America's Got Talent, are back with an optimistic project that will touch the entire nation with their big voices and even bigger hearts.
The soft pop singing duo, who taught the country a lesson in overcoming extreme adversity, will continue their inspirational journey with a Valentine's Day release of Love Is Gonna Find You, a five song EP which is now available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and Rhapsody. The sisters will also release three videos on their YouTube Channel and on their website, including the title track Love Is Gonna Find You and The Same Way, a heartrending anti-bullying plea.
"We've witnessed the devastation that bullying has caused both at home in Idaho Falls and across the country. It breaks our hearts and we had to make a statement," says Ali (22). In 2009, a neighborhood friend committed suicide after being bullied and "we wrote this song in his memory to hopefully bring greater awareness to this issue." This video, which features classmates from their high school, "is such a great way for us to honor him," says Christina
(14). "I know he would be proud."
Other tracks include Love Is Gonna Find You, which encourages those to take a leap of faith in themselves and follow their dreams as well as Who You're Gonna Be, which offers a new twist on the old adage that 'what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.' "We believe that the obstacles placed in our paths have made us stronger," says Christina.
This lovable duo, along with their two older siblings, were all diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis (CF) at birth. CF is a genetic respiratory disease and from a very young age, they were told that they would never be able to sing due to their illness. They of course, had different plans.
They began their careers as soloists, but sang together for the first time at the funeral of their older sister as a special tribute. Finding strength in a song and realizing the healing power of music for themselves and others, the girls decided to join forces to spread awareness about the diseases and inspire others not to lose hope in the face of adversity.
In 2011, they teamed up with Grammy-nominated and Dove Award-winning hit producing and songwriting team dogmatics (Kelly Clarkson, Michael Jackson, Natalie
Grant, etc.) to create Love Is Gonna Find You.
