Lina Hayek Bio
Lina Hayek has been the liturgical music director at Saint Joseph High School, her Alma Mater, for the past 5 years, where she leads over 500 young lives, teachers, staff, alumni, parents and friends in praise and worship. Prior to SJ, she was the youth music leader at Saint Dominic Savio for 17 wonderful years, ministering with people of all ages. This is where her ministry started from a very young age. Lina can take virtually any song and restylize it to fit the needs of the people she is leading. This is only one of the unique gifting she has to offer. She is best known for her incredible heart & soul, as she uses her talents to capture and engage the crowd with her beautifully & blended diversity of music styles to sound like something captivatingly new.
Lina earned her BA in Theatre Arts from CSULB, and has a natural knack for performance, even headlining once, in a parody act imitating several celebrity musicians, as Orange County's funniest female at the World Famous Improv! Delving deeper into the Arts and people, she pursued her MA in Humanities, and received it with honors.
Lina continues to work on many projects, and is especially excited to join forces with Jesse once again to minister and bring love, joy and music to people around the world.
