What’s your name , where are you from, and also what are somethings we need to know about you?
Kansas City, Kansas but I reside in Michigan and attend Michigan State University. I am a singer-songwriter. I’m just starting out and really breaking out of my shell so I’ve only caught a glimpse of my dreams but ever since I’ve started, I’ve realized how much of a passion I have for anything musical. I released my first single “Treat Me Right” and a demo “All I Want” on all platforms in August. I am currently working on an album titled “Let Me Introduce Myself” that will feature thirteen songs and I am very excited about the project. I am also an actress and have had small acting roles in several mini-series, YouTube series, theatre productions, and many bigger roles in musical theatre productions including A Chorus Line, the Wizard of Oz, and Fame! The interesting thing about me is that I never imagined myself doing what I do. As a kid, I didn’t speak much, pretty much mute. Hardly uttered a word. Was always attracted to writing and storytelling. I was also very musically inclined and I played nearly every instrument but my vocal chords. As I grew older, I decided that I would grow up and get a practical job where I can go to school and work straight out. I decided on becoming a lawyer. Well, my first year of college I was in the music room a lot. I started to sing more and develop my voice and I grew an amazing love for it. I auditioned for America’s Got Talent and started to sing little gigs around the area. Then the COVID-19 pandemic hit and while in quarantine I had a lot of time to myself to think, work on hobbies, hone other skills, and develop myself as a person and apparently as an artist as well. I started recording music over the summer, putting out covers on my social media, I joined an audio engineers club and learned how to record myself. This was when I discovered that I have a genuine love for music and although I am still in college working towards my undergrad degree, I uncovered my love for singing and all things music. This is what I want to do with my life because it wouldn’t be a job. It would be more than a career but a love. This makes me different because I didn’t come out of the womb singing. I was very shy about sharing my musical passions and I always shied away from pursuing anything like it. I had to grow as a person to recognize my potential as a musical artist. A thing that differentiates me from every other artist in general would be my willingness to learn and try new things. I am always willing to collaborate with others because I can learn from them and steal their vibes a little haha. I want every song that I release to be better than the next and the only way to do that is to keep learning each time I record. In five years, I see myself working and collaborating with artists that can inspire me. I see myself completely in the music and film industry, ready to take over. I see happiness. I think the legacy I want to leave behind is one of hope actually. I aspire to inspire others to pursue their passions because dreams are infectious.
