Viral singer/songwriter Nadia Khristean believes in creating music for a purpose. She will be one of the keynote speakers at the Women Are That They Might Have Joy conference in March. Nadia began songwriting at age 7. She has always believed in “music for a cause,” so at the young age of 15 she co-founded the “Daddy Come Home” Foundation and recorded her first single professionally to benefit the families of fallen soldiers. She worked with scholastic teachers and students to hold fundraisers selling her CD, and to put on ceremonies honoring the families of fallen soldiers. She organized and performed in 4 ceremonies (2010-2013) at LDS Business College with political leaders such as Attorney Mark Shurtleff and Senator Chris Buttars. She spoke at a Radio Show in Brigham Young University on what drives her to keep running the foundation.
Nadia ran “You are Beautiful” programs in Utah County, Salt Lake Valley and Peru, working to show women and young women their inner beauty. She was honored by the Utah National Compact Organization (2012) and “Where Much is Given” foundation (2013) for her work in the programs.
She recorded three music videos through Soularium Studios and Go Big Films. Each song is
directed toward a cause, such as anti-bullying, inner beauty, abused children, families of fallen soldiers, how small acts make a difference, etc.
Nadia served a mission in Lima, Peru, where she did many flash mob performances on buses and pianos in parks. After returning home, she arranged music for and directed 10 choirs for religious conferences in Peru (2014 – 2015).
