Taking on the task to remake a dance classic is no easy feat, but when emerging pop princess Kristina Korban decided to tackle 90’s dance diva Amber’s "This Is Your Night," Korban was determined to make it her own. "It was always one of my favorite songs," the singer admits. "It’s a very driven dance song," as driven as Korban herself.

The artist is riding the inspired wave and popularity of electronic dance music. "It brings out so much emotion in me," she says. She’s irrevocably connected to the movement that is currently taking over the club scene. "It’s the most moving genre of music -┬ámy hands are up in the air immediately!" The all-too gorgeous gal is making wildly enthusiastic fans at every one of her club appearances, and soon Los Angeles will be next. This is your night, LA!

Kristina Korban performs her new single "This Is Your Night" at Here Lounge on Sunday, July 1.

The Ukrainian beauty was always moved by music. She had many hobbies growing up when she and her family relocated to the states, but nothing moved her more than dance and music. "Nothing stuck," Korban said, "until I started dancing. On stage...I came alive!"


Dancing Free...

Her exposure to the European club scene introduced her to the tectonic rhythms of electronica long before it became trendy here with radio-friendly acts like Rihanna and Nicki Minaj. "You get a whole other experience there," Korban relays. She’d sneak into clubs while visiting her family in Europe - she was probably 13, but the music was intoxicating and undeniable "I love how [electronic dance] music makes me feel; how it draws people together." And Kristina Korban is even more excited that the genre is being fully embraced by the club culture here in the states from coast to coast.

"When I first wanted to make electronic dance tracks in the US, they told me it wouldn’t work," Korban revealed, but it wasn’t long before she convinced the naysayers of her ability to make this music into a new dance revolution. "I’m really excited that it’s finally caught on."

Yes, it’s caught on and like Kristina Korban herself - is on fire! The explosive talent will be taking it to the people on Sunday, July 1 when she performs at Tom Whitman’s "Size 9!" in LA’s Here Lounge in West Hollywood. The artist is more than thrilled to be connecting her music with and excited to be performing for this audience. This is her night, and she’s ready to make it last until the morning light!

Kristina Korban performs her hit track "This Is Your Night" Sunday , July 1 at "Size 9!" in LA’s Here Lounge, located at 696 N. Robertson, West Hollywood. Go to www.herelounge.com for more details.
