What got you started in music?
I started singing and performing on a smaller level during elementary school. I had a very supportive music teacher who put me on stage and had me sing at all the school events, despite how shy I was about it. It was during high school that I really started to realize how much I enjoyed music and singing, and started taking some voice lessons, and learning guitar. I began performing with a cover band comprised of good friends from school, and I started taking part in musical theatre and different talent competitions.
Do you remember the first album you ever owned?
The first album I ever bought for myself was Kelly Clarkson’s debut album “Thankful”. I’ve been a fan of hers since the very beginning and think she’s such a strong talent. Her vocals are just amazing and keep getting better with time.
