I created Gift of Song to infuse meaning into modern life. Making people feel special and loved is the intention behind everything I create. 

Creative expression is my first love and I've been given the ability to blend it with business. My extensive experience in marketing and event management have set my foundation for seamless project management. Some of the highlights of my music career so far have been gracing the stage with Toni Braxton, creating an open mic that's raised funds for worthy causes, and writing song gifts that make people feel special.

What Clients Say

"I cried when I heard the song Carissa wrote for me to gift to my boyfriend on his birthday. She captured the essence of our relationship and the birthday message I wanted to send him. She's talented with both ballads & dance songs. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a unique heartfelt gift for someone they love."

Carissa's songs hook you. That thing that great songwriters have...she has it.
