How did you get your start as a Singer?
When I was five years old, my parents put me in piano lessons and I would constantly be singing along to what I had written. Because of this, they decided to put me in singing lessons as well and ever since my first live performance, I have not wanted to do anything else!
What was it like traveling the world to raise money for SOS Children’s Villages?
Traveling the world at such a young age was probably one of the most enlightening and educational experiences I believe I will have for the rest of my life. Due to the fact that we stayed in orphanages in half the countries we went to, I had the opportunity to experience cultures completely authentically.
What was the process like leading up to the Guinness World Records event?
We set out on the 80 Anthems journey not thinking of the Guinness world record at all. It was actually only when we were in country 79 (England) that we thought of visiting the offices. They immediately loved the story and invited me back for an interview. Later on, they ended up verifying my record as well!
You have performed live in front of thousands of stadium members at sporting events, what is it like to sing in front of all of those people?
A funny personality trait of mine is that I can sing in front of as many people as I don’t know without getting nervous at all. However, I tend to get a little nervous when it’s in front of people I really care about.
How did you get cast on GoatFamLA?
I actually love telling this story. It all started when I made an audition video based on Elle Woods’ Harvard Admissions Essay from the movie Legally Blonde, and sent it in to GoatFam’s Instagram. The manager of the house absolutely loved it and she flew me out the next week to join the squad. It has been the most fun experience of my life and definitely the best year so far!
What inspires you to make your own music?
Singing is my passion and I believe that the only way you can make people feel with your music is if your music is true to you and comes from the heart!
What’s the typical process like for making a song?
I will typically come up with a chord progression or find a beat that I like and I will freestyle melodies until I find one that fits perfectly. Then I will apply a strong feeling that is relevant in my life at the time and will write the song about that! I find that the strongest emotions make the best songs so I try to completely let loose when I write!
What are somethings outside of music that you like to do for fun?
My favorite things to do in my spare time are taking dance classes, hanging out with friends and school work (because I am still a senior lol).
