Kingwood's own Kristen Hertzenberg is best known for her role as "Christine" in the Las Vegas production of The Phantom of the Opera and was lauded by critics for her clear soprano voice with "the strength to keep the high notes rooted in emotion." She has toured Europe in a production of the 1960s Love Rock musical Hair and has performed a series of sold-out solo concerts in Las Vegas. She has also starred in the hit Broadway musical Million Dollar Quartet on the Las Vegas strip. In 2014, Desert Companion magazine named her Best Torch Singer and many other Las Vegas publications have also taken notice, hailing her as "graceful," "gorgeously voiced," and "a singer with extraordinary vocal depth.”
