NEWPORT BEACH — Victoria Griffin, 15, has pretty much been singing since birth, or at least since before she could talk, her mother said. Catherine Griffin used to sing lullabies to newborn Victoria and her daughter would make odd little noises back. "I realized she was trying to sing," Catherine Griffin said. "She was humming and cooing, trying to sing. Literally, from the moment she could articulate anything, she was singing. " These days Victoria has progressed from singing in her bassinet to performing where Tchaikovsky made his American debut.
