When did you start doing Music?
I started singing by the time I was 3. Holding a tune and keeping a beat. But I knew that I wanted to seriously pursue a music career by the time I hit middle school.
Tell us a little about your childhood?
I come from a very musical family—I am the distant cousin of Mahalia Jackson and my father grew up performing in a family R&B band along with his brothers and sisters and my Mom occasionally sang back up in my dads band, so I was always around music. I started singing by the time I was 3 and at 7 I formed my first group – “5BC”, (5 Best Cousins) and we sang and performed dance routines I choreographed at family events and various school talent shows. By 7th grade, 5BC had dissolved but I continued singing and grew to love songwriting. Music has always been a part of me.
