November 11, 2016 - CHARLOTTE, NC - Rising pop singer/songwriter Kristina Lachaga, "The Girl With The Big Pink Heart," will be kicking off the holiday season Charlotte-style (complete with a giant float, a turkey named Charlotte, and sweet tea, of course!).

Fittingly, her new single "R.S.V.P." -- hitting iTunes Friday, November 18th -- is inspired by a book that takes place in North Carolina. Published by Simon & Schuster/Aladdin MIX and written by Jen Malone and Gail Nall, the You're Invited book series' descriptions of the North Carolina beach town and steadfast friendships helped to spark the song's lyrics. You "couldn't wish for anything more" from this catchy and upbeat song that captures the good-time vibes you have when you're with your BFFs.
