You know the type: beautiful, talented, smart, stylish, and fun to be around. Yeah, they suck.
Or at least we thought they did — until we met musician Christina Courtin, who recently released her trance-inducing, self-titled debut album.
We were positively smitten and today present the delightful mermaid-haired Brooklynite, who studied classical violin at Juilliard, playing with the likes of Yo-Yo Ma, Kanye, and Beyoncé, before transitioning to honky-tonk-inspired singer/songwriter.
The song she’s performing in the video is called “Foreign Country” — and we get goose bumps just thinking about how amazing her voice sounds in person.
You’ll probably wanna punch her in the face.

Blind dating. Speed dating. Online dating. You’ve tried everything in your shameless quest to find the perfect man.
So you’ll totally relate to When in Rome. The new film stars Kristen Bell as an ambitious, relationship-challenged New Yorker who takes a whirlwind trip to Rome. There she defiantly steals coins from a fountain of love, inexplicably igniting the passion of the men who threw them in.
Her new suitors include a sausage magnate (Danny DeVito), a street magician (Jon Heder), an adoring painter (Will Arnett), and a self-admiring model (Dax Shepard). But when a charming reporter (Josh Duhamel) pursues her with equal zest, she’ll have to determine if it’s the work of the coins or the real thing.
Which is still easier than online dating.
