Charisma Kain

Electro-pop trio Pink Army was founded by teens Alicia Randolph (aka Tina), Kayla Cruise (aka Charisma Kain), and Lia Johnson (average age = 13). The group is modeled after Disney Channel/Nickelodeon stars such as Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez. “Our music is electro-pop, with a little R&B that’s easy to dance to,” says Kain.

In March 2010, they received Child Actor Recognition Awards at Universal Studios. The next day, Pink Army marched into Sonikwire Studios in Irvine to record the first track on their debut album, with L.A.-based producer and cowriter Eddie Galan (B5, the Clique Girlz, Akon, Backstreet Boys, Alyson Stoner, etc.).

Galan’s songs have been used for TV shows such as The Hills and Keeping Up With the Kardashians and on the Hannah Montana soundtrack, as well as the soundtrack to High School Musical. After performing over 100 shows, the trio signed an endorsement deal with Daisy Rock Guitars.

In 2011, San Diego native Charisma Kain was selected out of thousands of kids across the nation to become a KIDZ BOP Kid for KIDZ BOP, the #1 music brand for kids ages 5-12 in the U.S. Since Kain joined the group, she’s co-starred in several national TV campaigns and music videos for the brand.

In summer 2012, Kain and the KIDZ BOP Kids embarked on a 22-city national tour which kicked off at downtown's Balboa Theatre on August 10. The tour is timed to coincide with the release of KIDZ BOP 22 and the launch of KIDZ BOP’s new pop star toy line, which includes Kain on the packaging.

Kain (“I love all things anime”) is no stranger to acting. “When I was seven, I was cast to do the Wizard of Oz at Starlight Theater, where I played a Munchkin. In one scene, I was doing back handsprings across the stage, and I crashed into someone and fell. I didn’t get hurt, but it did throw off my performance.”

Things don’t always go smoothly for, though. “I’m afraid of being stung by bees and wasps. I’ll never forget the time [Pink Army] did a show at Magic Mountain during the summer, and a bee kept on following me and landed on me. I was so freaked out! There’s even some [video] footage of this, where it shows me running around the stage trying to get away from the bee. How embarrassing.”
