Motto: “Wake up everyday with a purpose”
What drives me?
Well there are a couple things that drive me but one of the biggest things are my family. My family has supported me through this journey my whole life. I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for them. Everyone has been a part of my journey in such positive ways, whether if it’s just coming to my shows, performances or even sending me a good luck text. My family is really one of the things that keep me going. Something else that drives me are the other artists around me who are working hard everyday. Some of these artists are older than me and some are younger but each has their own goals and just simply meeting them or just watching their work ethic also inspires me and makes me want to work just as hard.
Who is my biggest inspiration?
My biggest inspiration would be my parents. Both of them are very hard workers and the way I see them operate day to day and work together just inspires me to want to achieve the same drive. No matter what the case is, my parents don’t give up. They always try their hardest to do what’s best. I have some great role models. They inspire me to do better. My next biggest inspiration would be Amy Winehouse. I have listened to her music for years and the words, the emotions that she puts into her songs touch me everytime. I could listen to some of her songs on repeat and never get tired of hearing it or feeling the same way every time I press the replay button. The way her songs are constructed with the way she performs inspires me to make my listeners have that same feeling.
What sets me apart?
I believe what sets me apart is just who I am as a person. I’ve been gifted with a talent and creativity that I could share with others and send a message. I grew up with people telling me that my personality is different. I always used to respond to them with “of course because your normal couldn’t be my normal” I believe everyone is different or unique in their own way. So the way I think and my creativity is what believe sets me apart the most.
Who are some of your favorite artists?
I would have to say in no order Amy Winehouse, Adele, Tina Turner, Diana Ross, Ella Fitzgerald, Norah Jones, Fugees, Erykah Badu, Hiatus Kaiyote, Jessie J, and so many more but then I would create a really long list
Do I ever get nervous?
Well when I was younger I had my own way of expressing my nerves. A couple days right before a show, I would always get sick. I mean coughing, sneezing, the whole nine yards and even then I would still go on stage a perform. So when I got over that and became older, I notice that I would only get a little nervous before going on stage but right when the song comes on and I start. I would close my eyes for a second and everything just disappears, I forget where I am at that moment and I just perform. I always compare it to the feeling I get right before I go on a roller coaster. Getting on always scares me but once the ride starts, I let myself go and then I feel free.
