An accomplished singer, dancer and actress, Corina Katt Ayala was born to Puerto Rican parents and raised in such urban environs as New York’s Spanish Harlem and the South Bronx.
The raven-haired Corina exhibited an early aptitude for entertaining that led to years of formal training in ballet, voice and theatre before landing her first recording contract with Cutting Records and releasing three independent dance hits “Out of Control”, “Give me back my heart” and “Loving you like crazy”> Her 1991 self-titled Cutting/Atlantic debut album spawned three Billboard chart-toppers: “Temptation”, “Whispers” and “Now that you’re gone”. Corina’s success in dance music afforded her the opportunity to star alongside Latin crossover crooner Marc Anthony in the East Side Story (1988). In 1999, Corina was featured in the Tim Robbins-directed, Touchstone Pictures release Cradle Will Rock (1999) playing artist Frida Kahlo opposite ‘Ruben Blades’ , ‘John Cusak’ and Vanessa Redgrave. She has since appeared in several feature films, including the Italian motion picture Doors of the unknown, Devils Kiss, _Big Apple (2000/II)_ and _Funny Valentine (2002)
