AGINA ALVAREZ MAKES TEAM ADAM ON NBC'S "THE VOICE" APRIL 2013!!!
“We want to inspire others, especially young girls, to know that the rest of their lives start right now!” Agina.
You’ve already heard her on the CBS hit “Dexter” and on MTV’s “The Hills” and “The City” and she has been on MTV’s HOT TOP TEN!
Agina Alvarez is a California girl. Born and raised in Southern California in a very Mexican American household, she moved from San Diego when she was very young, and has lived in Riverside/San Bernardino and L.A. with her family ever since.
Agina’s mother is a voice and piano teacher who realized her baby girl would go into the family business when she heard her humming in tune to the fire engines that would pass the house. At three years old, Agina was singing along with Whitney Houston on the radio and her mother’s students in the living room.
At 5 years old she confidently hit the talent contest circuit. At 8 she performed on Sabado Gigante. At 9 she won Showtime at the Apollo, the long running TV showcase program and was accepted into Jackie Jackson’s (one of the Jackson 5) “Tomorrow Starts Today” entertainment boot camp. She also appeared on the Sally Jesse Raphael Show, the Jerry Lewis Telethon and Ed McMahon’s Next Big Star.
In her teens, Agina performed all over the country with her high school choir and in professional musical productions, such as the prestigious Doolittle Theatre’s SELENA, A MUSICAL CELEBRATION OF LIFE. She also dabbled in television where she has had recurring roles on The Brothers Garcia, Crossing Jordan and the Young and The Restless.
But music gives Agina the most satisfaction and it’s where she is devoting all her energies and she continues to study jazz piano theory and develop her powerhouse voice.
