Well, funny story. It actually started when I was around 7, I believe and my mother had pushed me into the spotlight on my birthday. She forced me to sing Celine Dion’s My Heart Will Go On in front of my entire family and although I was extremely shy at first, I loved it. Ever since that birthday, I wrote childish songs about school, and my friends and awesome teachers, which then grew into more mature songs about life, and experiences. Because my parents were both very musical, my Mom being an avid Sunday singer at home with her mop and vacuum and my Dad being in a church band, I was into a lot of genres. My idols are Beyonce, Erykah Badu, Mariah Carrey and Ariana Grande. She’s a new Diva, but I think Miss Grande has made a name for herself in this industry.
