Talk to me a little bit about how you got into the music industry.

I got into music in general when I was about five years old. It was actually in kindergarten. We were getting ready to sing our kindergarten graduation song, and the teacher told everyone not to sing it and for me to just sing it alone. Since that day, I realized I was singer. I remember the teacher pulling me aside and telling me that I’m a singer, that I could really do this. From then, I joined the choir in my church. At the age of 13, I was on a show called America’s Most Talented Kids. Although I didn’t win, it really allowed me to explore a lot of opportunities. I started doing music independently with some of the producers that I started working with them and releasing some singles independently. From there, that’s really how I got into the business.

What are some artists you really look up to?

There’s a couple. For me, Celine Dion has always been a god. She’s always been a person that I look up to because I feel that not only does she have incredible vocals but she has a beautiful personality. She takes music very seriously, and I think that’s sometimes what’s lacking in artists these days. Another artist I look up to is the opera singer, Maria Callas.

Do you feel like you always knew you wanted to be a singer?

Maybe not before 5 years old. [Laughs] The truth is, I never really realized what I was doing was singing. There’s a lot of videos of me before 5 years old that I’m always humming. When my teacher told me to sing on my own, I comprehended it, and from that day on, I was like ‘okay now I’m a singer. That’s who I am.’ I’ve never been interested really in anything. Singing to me is just natural.

Where do you draw inspiration for your music from?

Life! Life is my favorite because, I feel like in music these days, the clubgoers and the partiers have their records, but I feel what’s lacking is real, substance music that talks about what we all go through every single day. Ultimately, at the end of the day with my music, I want it to be relatable and connect to people. That’s why in my song writing, I’m really focusing on just life, and writing about life, and what we go through, and the ups and downs about it.

What do you want people to get out of your music?

I want people to be able to connect to my music. What they can get out of it is really up to them and where they’re at in life. In general, I would love for them to get a positive influence from my music.
