THE JOURNEY BEGAN FOR ME ON NOVEMBER 20, 1989 IN DE KALB, ILLINOIS, HOMETOWN OF THE NIU HUSKIES. I GREW UP WITH MY MOTHER, DONNA, MY BROTHER ZACHARY, AND MY FATHER, RICHARD. I STARTED SINGING ALONG WITH DISNEY MOVIES ON T.V. WHEN I WAS ONLY 3 YEARS OLD AND IMMEDIATELY KNEW I WANTED TO BE A SINGER. SINGING AND PERFORMING IS IN MY BLOOD. I'M PASSIONATE ABOUT IT. LIKE BREATHING AIR, I CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT IT.BY THE TIME I GOT TO THE 4TH GRADE I WAS ALREADY AN HONORARY MEMBER OF MY HIGH SCHOOL CHOIR. THE SAME YEAR I CHOSEN TO SING AT THE GRAND OPENING FOR GWENDELYN BROOKES ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. I WAS VERY HONORED TO BE CHOSEN TO DO THAT! I WAS EVEN MORE HUMBLED WHEN THEY ASKED ME TO COME BACK AND SING AGAIN AT THE TEN YEAR ANNIVERSARY IN 2008. GROWING UP I STARRED IN MANY PLAYS, MUSICALS, AND PERFORMING ARTS GROUPS.ONE GROUP WAS MWAH PERFORMING ARTS TROUPE. OUR GROUP WOULD GO AROUND TO LESS FORTUNATE HIGHSCHOOLS IN INNER CITY CHICAGO AND THROUGH PERFORMANCE OF DANCE, SINGING, AND SKITS WOULD CONVEY A MESSAGE OF HOPE AND PROMISE FOR THE FUTURE. HELPING KIDS FIND HEALTHY ALTERNATIVES TO DRINKING, DRUGS, VIOLENCE; RESOLVING ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIP PROBLEMS, BULLYING, AND CONTROL; ELEMINATING DISCRIMINATION STEMMING BETWEEN DIFFERENCE OF PEOPLE.THE OTHER GROUP WAS DEES DREAMERS A LOCAL CHILDRENS PERFORMING ARTS GROUP THAT WOULD PUT ON MUSICALS, PLAYS, AND LOCAL CONCERTS AROUND TOWN SINGING BROADWAYS TUNES.IN HIGHSCHOOL I SANG IN THE SENIOR CHOIR AND ROYAL COURT IN MADRIGALS UNTIL I GRADUATED AS A JUNIOR IN 2007. AT THAT TIME MY PARENTS’ DIVORCE MADE ME REALIZE I HAVE TO GO AFTER WHAT I WANT, SO I SET GOALS AND PREPARED TO WORK EVEN HARDER. IN FEBRUARY OF 2008 I MOVED OUT TO LAS VEGAS, NEVADA TO FULFILL MY DREAMS OF BECOMING A STAR, GRADUATING A YEAR EARLY TO DO SO. MY CAREER AS A PROFESSIONAL SINGER/SONGWRITER SO FAR HAS BEEN FILLED WITH SOME AMAZING MOMENTS. I’VE SANG IN NUMEROUS PLACES FROM GIANT CATHEDRALS IN CANADA TO DISNEY LAND, FROM KARAOKE CONTESTS IN KIRKLAND, IL TO BEING AN OPENING ACT FOR TWISTA AT THE CLUB CAMPUS IN DE KALB, IL. AMERICAN IDOL FOUR TIMES, IT WAS A GREAT LEARNING EXPERIENCE FOR ME. I'VE PERFORMED MY ORIGINAL MUSIC AT NUMEROUS PLACES IN LAS VEGAS , NEVADA INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO BALLY’S HOTEL AND CASINO, THE BOX OFFICE, THE FREAKIN FROG, MMA FIGHTS AT SOUTHPOINT CASINO, TOMMY ROCKERS, ORACLE NIGHTCLUB AND MANY MORE.I ENJOY WRITING MUSIC JUST THE SAME… IT GIVES ME THAT THRILL WHEN PEOPLE ARE ABLE TO RELATE TO ME AND MY MUSIC. I WANT PEOPLE TO BE ABLE TO FEEL WHAT I HAVE BEEN THROUGH AND BE ABLE TO LOOK UP TO ME WHEN THEY ARE HAVING ROUGH TIMES AND THAT’S THE BEST FEELING OF ALL.I SING A WIDE VARIETY OF MUSIC. MY FOCUS IS URBAN POP. I ALSO SING CONTEMPORARY, CLASSICAL, OPERA, POP, JAZZ, R&B, HIP-HOP, ACOUSTIC...AND YEAH THIS WHITE GIRL CAN RAP ALSO! FOR ME ITS ABOUT THE LYRICS. I'M REAL, SOMETIMES RAW, BUT ALWAYS TRUTHFUL AND PERSONAL WITH MY LYRICS. IM ALWAYS WORKING HARD IN THE STUDIO WRITING AND PRODUCING - GETTING THE RIGHT VIBE FOR MY MUSIC.SO THAT'S THE STORY SO FAR. TAKING IT ONE DAY AT A TIME. LOTS OF GREAT THINGS TO COME BECAUSE IM PERSUING THE ONE THING THAT WOULD TRULY MAKE ME HAPPY AND COMPLETE - LIVING MY LIFE AS A PERFORMER, ON STAGE, WITH MY NAME IN LIGHTS.STAY TUNED. THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT AND LOVE.
