WHO IS CHRISTIAAN SMITH?
While at opera school, Christiaan Smith began a jazz band with Miles Davis’ bassist. Much to the chagrin of his opera teachers, who told him he'd have to choose a field, Christiaan pursued the act. Convinced that he could perform contemporary and classical music simultaneously, Christiaan went on to sing in Pavarotti’s hometown in Italy and work with opera legend Marilyn Horne and composer Jake Heggie. After a successful national Broadway tour as the heartthrob, Gaston, in Beauty and the Beast, Christiaan now resides in NYC and is currently working with Lady Gaga’s vocal coach as well as singing his own arrangements of Ed Sheeran, The Beatles, and John Mayer at Carnegie Hall in anticipation of his album release.
