If you could travel into any musical time or place, where would you go and why?

I would travel back to the 70’s or 80’s (club music). I have always enjoyed the music my Uncle plays from that era, it is fun & easy to dance to.

If you could invite 5 people to dinner (present or past) who would they be?

My Great-grandmothers from both sides of the family, My Mom’s mom, My Cousin Jaimie, & Uncle Frank

Do you have any hidden talents, hobbies or interests?

I am really good at touching my nose with my tongue and I love watching old shows from before I was born.

What is your favorite highlight/moment in your music career thus far?

I’ve been blessed this past year and am grateful for being personally invited to perform My original songs on the runway at LAFW and then in France at the Cannes Fashion Festival (during Cannes Film Festival) for Nancy Vuu Collection.  Going to France was a moment in time I will never forget! Also, Performing at Social Slam Selfie Awards or at the Susan G. Komen Run at Dodger Stadium in front of 15,000 ppl, and the moment I realized I wanted to be a singer.

What song best describes the soundtrack of your life? Something Big, by Shawn Mendes

What’s your favorite part of performing? Watching the crowd enjoy my music as much as I do.

What’s your ‘go to’ shower song? Beyonce- Flawless

What message do you want to share through your music?

You should forever Be Happy, and live the life You deserve. We are here for you and don’t care about what other people think.

What would you say to someone going through a rough time?

“Lift your head up Gorgeous, your tiara is falling” (not my quote, but I’ve always liked it).

If you had only 5 minutes to perform one song that could leave a great impact on the world today, what song would you perform and why?

Not Alone, my original song. I feel that my lyrics will touch others that have been abused or hurt, and these words would help cheer them up letting them know they’re not alone.

Just for fun … fill in the blanks!

Without music, I would be a depressed, little human.

Music is Me.

My hero is Mi Madre! 🙂

Life is unbelievably incredible!

How are you rocking your voice for good?

I am Rocking my voice for good by being a part of awesome anti-bully programs like Free2Luv and I AM THAT GIRL, turning self-doubt into self-love.  There is no better part in life then being there for another.  Spreading these two messages will change the world!
