Karina is a first generation Cuban-American from Miami, Florida. When she was growing up she would "lip-sync shows" to her family.  She also "lip-synced" songs while in high school, but says she did not really become "aware of her voice" until she was 19 years old.  She never took voice lessons or sang live until that time. She considers herself to be a "late bloomer" with her musical career,  but also says "better late than never". 

Karina says she feels "quite blessed"  to have shared the stage with Celia Cruz, Tom Scott, Ray Parker Jr., Jeff Kashiwa, Johnny Britt of Impromp 2, Paul Shafer and Dan Siegal. She also says "I have a band that I am quite lucky to have perform with me on stage and on the NUVOSOUL CD. They are some the top musicians out there that work with other Amazing superstars of  all genres. Hopefully I  can continue this wonderful trend".

Karina's music is described as being "a sultry combination of Soul-Jazz and Latin"  Notably, she co-wrote, co-produced and sang the songs in both English and Spanish "to create a unique sound". NUVOSOUL" was released in July of 2008.
