What got you into music? Getting into music has always been a passion of mine. I started off writing poetry and songs and then submitting them to contests. I won several awards for my poetry in addition to getting them published nationwide in the American Poetry Annual Book. Shortly thereafter I began winning awards for songwriting contest. One day I decided to put my own voice to my own lyrics and it just took off from there. Music is my passion and it is my gift to share it with others as well.
Anything to tell your fans? If I had one thing I could tell my fans it would be to thank them for their continuous love and support towards my music. I wouldn’t be in the position I am today without YOU!!! Thank you, thank you, and thank you forever and always.
My biggest goals for 2017 is for my voice to be heard nationwide. I want to accomplish everything I have on my list for 2017 plus more. I do not believe in giving up as failure is not an option for me. I also believe that Persistence and patience is the key to success without those 2 my dreams are only visions
