Karina Pasian (born July 18, 1991) is an American singer and pianist.[1][2] She is currently signed to Def Jam.[3]



Karina is of Dominican and Armenian [4][5] descent. She first began taking piano lessons at the age of three from her babysitter, and began classical piano training while in kindergarten. She began working with a vocal coach at age eight, and attended the Professional Performing Arts School in New York City.[1]

In 2003, Pasian met Quincy Jones, who invited her and her family to his home in Bel Air, California. Soon after this, Pasian performed and won on Star Search. She also performed at Quincy Jones' We Are The Future concert in Rome.[1] On June 22, 2007, Pasian performed at the White House for President George W. Bush, in celebration of Black Music Month

Pasian became the subject of a bidding war, when she was thirteen, between three major record labels: Def Jam, Interscope, and Bad Boy Records. She ultimately chose Def Jam in 2006, because they "made the best offer."[2] In 2008 Karina was nominated for the Best Contemporary R&B Album Grammy for First Love.[6]

She is known for appearing on many remixes from hit songs such as Kiss Me Thru The Phone (Soulja Boy) and With You (Chris Brown).
