WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO PURSUE A CAREER IN THE MUSIC AND ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY?
From an early age, I had a deep love for singing and was determined to pursue it as much as possible. Joining the school choir was an excellent start to my musical journey and allowed me to further explore my vocal abilities. As I became more involved in choir, I was invited to join the school’s Gospel Choir, where I was able to really hone my vocal skills by learning how to sing with power and emotion.
My ambition only continued to grow as I started listening to popstars such as Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera – their powerful vocals and inspiring performances gave me even more motivation to chase my dreams.
YOUR SINGLE “NOBODY” HAS BECOME A GLOBAL HIT. CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT THE CREATIVE PROCESS BEHIND THE SONG?
My song “Nobody” was written about a difficult relationship I was in at the time. The message behind it is that no one has any authority over my heart, and nobody can tell me what to do. Andrew Lane, billboard music music producer I collaborated with, helped bring this track to life. We started by writing down the lyrics together on my iPhone , and then we grabbed an acoustic guitar to see how they sounded together. It all flowed naturally and the whole process felt quite magical. We shot the music video for “Nobody” in a stunning mansion located in Brentwood California. It was full of stunning costumes and everyone had a great time! If you have some free time, I’d definitely recommend checking out the video on YouTube – it really highlights both the emotion behind the song and our incredible production team’s work!
YOU’VE BEEN TO THE GRAMMYS MULTIPLE TIMES AND ARE A MEMBER OF THE RECORDING ACADEMY. WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR FAVORITE GRAMMY MOMENT SO FAR?
My favorite Grammy moment so far has been walking the red carpet. Wearing all of the amazing outfits and designs that were custom-made for me was an incredible feeling. Plus, I got to meet some of the biggest icons – such as The Weeknd, Tony Bennett, asap rocky Lady Gaga, and Pitbull. We had fun conversations about music and our experiences at the Grammys. I’m looking forward to one day being nominated myself, as it would be a dream come true! To make it even more special, I know that if it happened, it would not just be my own achievement but an achievement of everyone who believed in me and my career.
YOU ARE ALSO AN ACTRESS AND WILL BE STARRING IN THE SCI-FI MOVIE “PANIC” IN 2023. HOW DID YOU PREPARE FOR THIS ROLE AND WHAT CHALLENGES DID YOU FACE DURING THE FILMING PROCESS?
Playing Laurie Panic was a very challenging role, both emotionally and intellectually. I prepared for the part by doing extensive research into the genre of sci-fi thriller films. Movies such as The Fourth Kind and The Exorcism of Emily Rose served as a huge source of inspiration for me and helped me to develop my character in the film. Milla Jovovich is one of my all-time favorite action actresses, so I made sure to take notes on her performances while researching the script. It definitely took some time to get into the right mindset and emotions for this particular role but I feel like I really brought it to life with my performance. Working with director Gregory Hatanka was an amazing experience; he pushed me to reach further into my emotions and really help bring Laurie Panic’s character to life on screen. Being able to collaborate with him also allowed me to enhance my performance in ways that I never thought were possible before this project. Looking back on it now, I can’t wait for everyone else to witness what we created!

I felt heard and understood when working with these two talented producers. Each had a unique approach and perspective that allowed me to expand my artist vision in ways I never would have thought of on my own.
YOUR MUSIC AND STYLE ARE OFTEN DESCRIBED AS BOLD AND UNIQUE. CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT YOUR CREATIVE PROCESS AND WHAT INSPIRES YOUR UNIQUE STYLE?
My creative process usually starts with a piece of poetry that I write or even a simple idea that I have in my head. I then work with music producers and other songwriters to develop this initial idea into a song.
Inspiration for my unique style can come from many sources including life lessons, relationships, and family. It really just depends on whatever mood No matter what kind of emotion I’m feeling, I strive to capture it through my music and lyrics.
