Carine Bado


Carine is a Bilingual CCM Artist & Songwriter, originally from Ivory Coast, who immigrated to Canada in 2007 and found in Manitoba a new home.  Blessed with the gift of music that was passed down, generation to generation in her family, she proudly embraced her passion for singing at the very beginning of her Christian walk.   Without a doubt, Music Ministry holds a critical place in her life, inspiring her to write her Christian first song at age fifteen and many more down the road.

Citizen of Earth, from Contemporary Christian Music to French/Afro Pop and some Gospel in between, Carine grew up listening to a wide range of Christian music genres which makes her tone unique.  Her desire is that her songs remind people of who they are, made in the image of the Creator. Her prayer is that her music helps others experience God’s love, and nurture their connection with Him in their everyday lives.

Carine, led worship in a mega-church for over 12 years, before making her debut in the Canadian Christian Music scene with the release of her first song, "Says the Lord" in July 2019 produced by Jordan Jackiew, a renowned Juno Award-winning producer from Tailored Studios. The overwhelmingly positive response from her audience propelled her into the Canadian Christian Music Industry and opened doors for meaningful collaborations with established local artists. Carine's authentic sound has captivated the attention of numerous Canadian radio stations, earning her valuable airtime and steadily climbing the charts on the Canadian Christian Cancun Reports this past year. Alongside building her musical connections, Carine has also made notable appearances where she showcased her talent and shared her inspiring story.  She has been featured on various platforms, including :
