I think that talented people really do have insecurities, and that is one of the things that kind of motivates them, because that's one thing they Know they're up on that stage, you can do no wrong, the audiences is yours; theyre there to see you.
Sometimes ideas are coming so fast that I have to stop doing one song to get another. But I don't forget the first one. If it works, it will always be there. It's like the truth: it will find you and lift you up. And if it ain't right, it will dissolve like sand on the beach.
This performance was so fun for me, because it was my first time doing an acoustic set! My guitarist, Seef, did such an amazing job with my original "Bring Me In." This was for a Sip N' Paint event in Atlanta. #MusicMonday
AS SOON AS YOU GET OFF STAGE, THAT'S THE MOST DANGEROUS TIME FOR A SINGER TO KISS PEOPLE BECAUSE YOUR VOCAL CHORDS ARE RECEPTIVE TO ANY KIND OF GERM.
I really like jazz and soul, but I also love so many other types of music, and I didn't want to be afraid to blend and experiment.
I love many genres of music, and have always listened to a variety of it. As a classically trained vocalist, I tend to use classical tones in my music, but I also have some Jazz tones. I studied Jazz briefly, and I love the voices of Ella Fitzgerald and Nina Simone. I think it's a beautiful thing to not be in just one lane, and be able to be versatile.
I always hope that my music can inspire someone, the same way other artists inspire me.
God gave me a voice to sing with, and when you have that, what other gimmick is there?
My life is a song still being written...watch my lyrics evolve.
