"I want my music to take listeners on a journey that hopefully helps them grow, cheers them up on a bad day, or has a positive impact on their lives."
A: I was really young! I come from a musical family and was always surrounded by music growing up. My dad is a classically trained pianist and both of my grandfathers were musicians so I grew up constantly listening to music. I started singing when I was six in front of audiences and from that point on I always knew I wanted to perform! In fact, at the start of the music video for my latest release, "Somebody Loves You," I featured a video of me singing at a local park when I was a little girl and I ended it singing in a big stadium in Miami. I also included my dad on the piano in that video and various clips of us together. That song and video meant a lot to me and it brought a lot of things full circle.
A: The inspiration behind my latest music release, “Somebody Loves You,” was the start of the pandemic and what everyone was going through around the world. I wanted the song to be a way to inspire people and give them hope during especially difficult times. Through that release, I partnered with the United Way of Miami-Dade to raise money for their Miami Pandemic Response Fund and it was really rewarding to be able to give back to the community and make a difference in people’s lives. I wanted my song to remind listeners that they are never alone and that no matter what they're going through, "Somebody Loves You".
