Quote; “I think I came out of the womb wanting to be a musician, and even though I went through the ballerina stage, the nurse stage and the princess stage, by the time I was five, I had the goal in sight.
I am really blessed to be able to make a living doing what I love. The days go by fast and there is always something to learn. If I could offer only one piece of advice to singers, it would be ‘Don’t lose the Joy’”.
