Her name is Carlina Mcleod, born and bred in Birmingham. She is mother to 2 gorgeous lil ladies an a handsom lil man. All 3 children are a massive credit to the music lover who definately have the potential to follow in their mother's foot steps.
Lina alway's knew in her heart she was meant to sing, bt she said'' i didnt have the balls to put myself out there. Singing for me is like strippin naked, i wernt ready to strip'' But now at the age of 30 Lina has finally took that massive step an is ready to bare all. Before taking her musical journey Carlina has previously worked for a daily news paper as a office clerk for news team international. Lina also worked at the N.E.C, the ICC, the N.I.A, AVFC, BCFC as a silver service waitress.
Lina is very family orientated and her family mean the whole world to her. Lina and her family suffererd a massive loss, her granmother, (r.i.p BERYL ADDASSA FEARON) who sadly passed at an amazin age of 82 on father's day 2011.
Along with the amazing artistes Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Mary j Blige and Monica, Lina's nan is her biggest motivation, inspiration, and role model.
Like many of us Lina has had more than her fair share of bad luck, devestation, and heart ache, but she truely believes that everyfin happens for a reason, an what don't kill u makes you stronger, an stil bein here today, healthy and happy, is all tha proof she needs.
At this point in her life Lina feels grateful for all her memories and life experiences so far good and bad, coz it really has made her who she is today.
Lina has always had a strong connection with music, and If you lived next door to lina as a teenager an didnt appreciate music, especially tha bass then you just would'nt get along. Music is a big part of lina's family so it is no surprise that lina has chose to enter the music industry. During Lina's school and college years, she icked u some valuable skills. School plays,school choirs, Lina was there. It was in primary school where Lina learnt to play her first instrument, the recorder. There was lots of noise for her forever supporting mother.
Lina loved school and hated if she had to have a day off, because she was in the school netball team and bands she felt like she was missing something, except for tha standard gcse classes her school and college years were filled with music and sport.
It was during secondary school where she joined the Smith's Wood School Steel band and played a lead pan and the bass drums. But Lina's real love was the Alto saxohone which she began to play at the start of secondary school, then joined a band and toured her home town.
After leaving school Lina went straight into Josiah Mason college, to study Buisiness and Finance, but unfortunately never completed The course. Her next college course which relates to her music career was at South Birmingham College, where she enrolled and completed performing arts, and left with a BTEC NATIONAL DIPLOMA.
During years that followed that Lina concentrated on her home life and family makin money and getting a job. Lina's last emloyment was as a croupier for Gala Casino, where she really enjoyed the gaming world it stil was not what she wanted.
Music is what Lina loves, whether she sings writes or dances, she now finally feels after she has had all the children she wants and needs, she is now ready to spread her love, kindness, and personality to whoever wants to recieve it, and would simply end by saying if you would like to know more about Carlina Mcleod, aka Lina then simply support her and tune into her vibe.
