Catrina L. Handley better known as Trie (pronounced Tree) is a native of Dallas who was blessed with the gift of song from a very young age. She realized her gift for acting after the influence of her vocal and drama coach at the age of 15 and has been singing and acting since then.
Catrina has diligently worked at perfecting her craft over the past 26 years to be a better vocalist and actress. She is an accomplished actress and has been featured in several plays and would love to continue to grow in theater and on stage. Her passion for the stage brings all that she performs to life.
Her style can be described as neo soul meets gospel. She can sing all genres of music from classical, rock, jazz and r & b but she would say her favorite music to sing is worship music. Catrina's growing love for the stage opened her eyes to the original call on her life to Minster to the people of GOD through HIS Word and the gift HE has given her. There is something about worshipping the LORD through song that is so exhilarating and comforting and she loves to praise HIM in that way. "I want to be ALL GOD has called me to be in this day and hour" is her prayer. Catrina desires to do GOD'S will and be a blessing through her acting and singing, which she wants to make a career, to bring the light of CHRIST to the world. Her dream is to one day sing on a stage with Lalah Hathaway.
