1. Tell us about your craziest touring experience?
I seriously cannot wait to go on my very first tour this summer!! But since I haven’t had any of my own yet, I would definitely say my craziest experience would have been when I was a really young & used to be a be a background singer. I had the incredible opportunity to sing background for Ashlee Simpson @ the 2006 MTV VMA’s in Sydney Australia!! Sydney is such a gorgeous city & It was incredible to be there supporting another amazing artist & doing what I love!

Hmm. Well I adore New York.. & Miami is always a blast.. But if I weren’t from my city, I’d definitely love visiting LA!! It’s one of the coolest in my opinion.
4. What’s some of the best advice you were ever given?
One of the best pieces advice I’ve ever been given is to think incessantly about whatever it is I want to appear in my life & completely block out everything else that contradicts that, regardless of how it may seem on the outside looking In. Keep it up & one day it’s guaranteed to show up! .. Oh yea & always be yourself NO MATTER WHAT!!
5. What’s in heavy rotation in your MP3/CD player right now?
Honestly I’m super focused on writing an amazing debut album so I’ve got tracks on tracks on tracks on repeat while I’m in my zone! But if I’m not writing I’m getting inspired by someone cool like Bob Marley or maybe gettin buck w/ Big Sean or Drake.. & probably vibin out to Jhene Aiko.
6. The last good book you read or TV show you’re addicted to?
Last good book I read was “7 habits of highly effective people” by Steven R. Covey. It’s all about self empowerment & reaching goals in practical everyday life. I love watching bios on the biography channel but I’m also totally addicted to ratchet shows like Bad girls club too. Oh yea & I love game shows like total blackout & ninja warrior!

8. What are three items you can’t live without on tour?
My iPhone (so I can instagram) my favorite Lip gloss & a super cozy blanket!
9. Who are your major musical influences?
I’m a huge fan 90′s music so I often see influences in my music from Outkast, No Doubt, Missy Elliot, TLC & Busta Rhymes. I also am super inspired by Mariah Carey. She’s such an incredible voice yet such an amazingly successful songwriter. I hope I can have longevity like her.
