Description

Although singing is my love and my forte, my passion for life translates into everything that I do. This is hard to express myself, but this review by my ex-boss at the Barefoot resort (where I completed 3 contracts) says it all:
Christabel (Bella) first came to Barefoot in 2012. Although she was hired as a singer, it quickly became apparent that she is not only multi-talented but also has vast reserves of energy, which made her perfect for our resort. In no time at all, Bella devised multiple avenues of engagement with our guests and she began teaching children to hula hoop and also condu ...

The lovely Christabel had a regular gig at my restaurant in South Goa for one season and she was a delight! The audience love her, she has a great rapport with them, and she sings like an angel. Her choice of songs is always perfect for the occasion and we would definitely welcome her back!

Experience

I was born and brought up in Abu Dhabi, UAE - where world culture and technological advancement were both commonplace and top tier. The unique advantage of growing up here was being exposed to both US and UK offerings equally, which accounts for my vast repertoire. I was also lucky to be brought up in a house where music played constantly - from Elvis and the Beatles, all across to Bollywood and local Arabic hits. Lyrics come easier than chords to me and I can riff rhymes or melodies in several styles - I love big soul vocals like Aretha, Adele, Bette Midler - can easily go wilder with power ...

Previous Clients

It would be impractical to state all of my clients, but my best was Barefoot resort in the Andaman Island of Havelock - where I have completed 3 seasons as the in-house singer and entertainer (plus one season as their yoga teacher) I have been more a traveler than pursued fame, and I prioritize experiences over all. My parents both grew up in Mumbai, but my dad was from performers paradise Goa, where I have spent every winter season except for the three years with Barefoot and one year in Auroville. I've played all over India, from the mountains to the cities and spent a summer busking on the ...

Acting Experience

My acting experience is comparatively inconsequential, but the shows I mentioned before and was a part of were theatrical in nature. In the right surroundings and with the right guidance I believe I could really flourish. The stage is somewhere I feel right at home and my voice is strong enough that I pulled off a comedy act with hula hooping and singing (to Tracy Chapman's Give me one Reason)

Meet the Act

I may have been earning my keep through my voice, but singing isn't my only pleasure. I'm definitely an "amateur everything, master of none" type who spent her childhood reading intensely and the rest of it trying new things. I love DIY projects of course, right up to masonry and construction. I'm also a painter of sorts - I like to do imitations of nature on walls, old guitars and have even illustrated a Botanical compilation on the flora of the Andamans. As it is with good learners, I'm also a good teacher and I give classes in Yoga (certified) Music, Circus and Dancercise to all ages - I ha ...

Additional Information

Unfortunately, I have an Indian passport, which probably immediately disqualifies me from a lot of positions. I'm looking for the people who see my worth and can extend a little beyond the norm for an exceptional case.
