I've won many talent shows but to me my greatest award is my voice that God has blessed me with.
How did you begin making music? Who introduced you?
I've been singing ever since I was 2. No one really introduced me. It was I who had such a love for music!
What was your musical education?
I'm still REALLY YOUNG but i attend school choirs, church choirs, and vocal lessons. I've learned alot of useful information I can use and add my own creativity/style 2.
When did you realise that making music could be a way of life for you?
Probably age 6 when all I wanted to do was SING for a living. When people would ask me ''What Do You want to be when you grow up''?, I'd say singing and it wasnt until later on that I devoloped a BACKUP plan but, singinng is my true passion.
What is your creative process?
I listen to beats. Sad slow beats or energetic and fast beats. I think about what I want people to know about me and that's probably where my love of writing best fits in. I write about all kinds of relateable things from boys and such to anything!
When do you have your most lucid moments, in the morning or night?
Music is such a passion anytime will work. I listen, think, and work on music as much as my schedule allows!
Have you ever awoken with a melody created from your dreams?
Of course! I probably get the most beautiful songs in my dreams because dreams are personalized just for that specific person, therefore mine are focused on me and I can really relate.
How do you know when a song is finished or needs no more changes?
I know when I cant get the song out of my head and I feel like the message I wanted to get across is compledte and I got my point across!
How did you discover your creative territory? How would you describe it?
My terriotory discovered me.
What part of your job is your least favourite?
The fake people for one but, my job is so awesome I really cant complain because I'm surronded with such great people that the fake people don't matter.
How often do you practice?
Practice never stops for me. Music is what I always wanted to do so practice is fun and i never want to stop so,I go on for as long as I have.
How do you feel right before going out on stage?
I'm a nervous wreck but as soon as I've started I dont know why i was nervous in the first place and I give a great show.
Which musicians or groups have been inspiring to your career?
Alicia Keys, She is my absolute role model. The way she handels her carrer and the person that she is is beautiful and no one can ever say she does not have talent. Nicki Minaj's creativity is a plus as well. I like Bruno Mars, Prince, MJ and so much MORE! Oh yeah and I can't forget the beautiful Jennifer Hudson.

What time did you get up this morning?
Really EARLY. Maybe 9. I've woken up earlier on weekend but its worth it.
