An Orlando, FL based Singer all her life and Professional Patriotic Performer since 1995, Catina has been performing our National Anthem with true pride! She is no stranger to singing for packed arenas and on national television, but it is the inspiration of our Military and love for our country which keeps her performing "O Say Can You See" time and time again. Catina's powerful vocals and true respect for our Military heard in a “traditional style Anthem” grasps her audience and allows them to sing along.
If there has been a major event in Central Florida, most likely Catina Mack has kicked it off with our Anthem. She is most recognized for singing the Anthem for four nationally televised NASCAR races on FOX and SPEED in the past five years and thirteen seasons with our Orlando Magic. She has fifteen years performing for the Central Florida Sports Commission and Tampa Bay Rays including many invitations from The Rays to perform for the “Summer Concert Series” with such acts as MC Hammer, The B-52's and Darryl Hall & John Oates. Catina has performed for some of the most notable events throughout Central Florida with crowds from 7,000 to over 125,000 in attendance, including the Champs Sports Bowl, Fireworks at the Fountain, Red Hot & Boom, Star Spangled Sanford, Jacksonville Jaguars, New York Yankees, Atlanta Braves, Houston Astros, Toronto Blue Jays, Dew Action Sports Tour, VISA Cup USA Gymnastics, Cocoa Beach Air Show, Orlando Veterans Day Parade and large Corporate Events.
A HEART FOR CHARITY
Charitable performances which have been close to her heart include many years with the Dick Batchelor Run for the Children benefiting Howard Phillips Center for Children and Families, Celebrity Mascot Games benefiting New Hope for Kids and the Orlando Veterans Day Parade. Other special philanthropic events include Kids Beating Cancer, Missing Children’s Benefit for the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, Walk for Wishes benefiting Make-A-Wish Foundation, Relay for Life benefiting American Cancer Society, Bert M. Warden’s Golden South Classic benefiting Sports Medicine Program at Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children, Birdies for the Brave Golf Tournament benefiting U.S. Armed Forces and their families, and the Charity Challenge.
BORN TO INSPIRE
It has been a passion of Catina’s to “inspire” others. A true believer in personal development and motivational speakers, she herself has taken an interest in one day becoming a Motivational Speaker. Catina was honored to be invited to perform for the “Get Motivated” Seminar in Orlando in 2008 for two sold out events. Among the speakers were Former First Lady Laura Bush, Mayor Rudy Giuliani, General Colin Powell, Terry Bradshaw, Zig Zigler, Lou Holtz and more. This experience has led her down a road of opening for other motivational speakers to support the message of continually improving the inner self.
Catina’s ongoing and impressive resume has been noted in such media sources as FOX Network, SPEED Channel and locally on FOX Orlando, WFTV Channel 9 and many Bright House Networks programs. She has been personally interviewed on-air for XL106.7FM's "Johnny and Jayde In The Morning", Magic 107.7FM's "Magic Mornings with Dave & Leslye" and featured in such publications as "Orlando Magazine", The Orlando Sentinel" and the "Sanford Herald".
She has been called upon to Judge talent competitions and auditions such as Daytona International Speedway's "Straightaway to Stardom", Center for Independent Living's "Orlando's Got Talent", Governor Charlie Crist's "Point of Light" Award, Florida Opera Theatre's "Orlando Idol" and other Charity & Sporting Events.
Catina is a mom of a four year old girl and has a huge heart for children. She has become a role model to other performers including a very special friend and child singing sensation by the name of Gina Marie Incandela. Gina is the Orlando Magic’s very own “good luck charm” who was diagnosed with autism at the tender age of 2 and then at the age of 6, turned around and captured the hearts of millions in the 2009 NBA Finals.
COMPILATIONS / OTHER ARTISTS
In addition to performing the National Anthem, her other projects include an appearance on the Holiday TV Special, "Santa Salutes the Stars", a 2010 Music Artists Calendar by Dreamdare, Inc. featuring Johnny Bulford, Gina Incandela, Jeff Coffey, April Phillips and Bre Morgan.
Catina is a versatile performer and her talent is not limited to Patriotic Songs. She performs Contemporary Christian, Woman Empowerment, Charitable Ballads, Wedding Songs, Party Songs and more. Song requests are taken for most any occasion.

"We cannot begin to imagine what our Veterans have experienced, serving and protecting our country, the country which we live free in today. It is my never ending hope that every single man and woman who has sacrificed their life and happiness for our Freedom would always be treated with the same respect as the day they departed for service." - Catina L. Mack
