Virgilio goes triple platinum

The American Music Association announced today that Christina Virgilio’s debut CD release, This is Me, just went triple platinum today, selling over 3,000,000 copies worldwide.

“I really didn’t expect my CD to gain popularity so quickly,” says the humble guitar player from Dallas, Texas. “All I needed was some extra cash, so I made a few copies of the CD to sell to friends and family. I had no idea it would rocket me into super- stardom overnight.” Her first album, a project done at jvjProductions, includes ten original songs where she writes about life, God, and.. parking tickets? “Yeah, I wrote that song one semester at school when I got like 20 parking tickets in a matter of weeks. It was real popular when I would play it at open mic nights around College Station.
