Background

Christina Wells is a mother of two children from Houston, Texas. Christina is a Registered Nurse by day and a singer by night.

When she was 19 years old, she auditioned to be a singer at a theme park, and got a standing ovation from everyone else who auditioned, but did not make the final cut, due to her weight.

She was crowned Pride Superstar at the 2016 Houston Pride Festival after singing the Hairspray song “I Know Where I’ve Been” which is performed by the character Motormouth Maybelle. (She and Jennifer Hudson have played the role before.) Christina is also a seamstress. [1]

Christina Wells' audition in Episode 1302 consisted of singing "I Know Where I've Been" from Hairspray. Howie Mandel, Mel B, Heidi Klum, and Simon Cowell all voted "Yes", sending her to the Judge Cuts.

Judge Cuts

Howie Mandel, Mel B, Heidi Klum, Simon Cowell and guest judge Ken Jeong all gave her standing ovations. Although the judges pointed out there were some moments where she sang off-key, her performance was strong enough for the judges to send her to the Quarterfinals.

Quarterfinals
