“I started singing when I was about 12 - I remember waiting for my parents to be out of the house so I could blast the tunes and sing. Michael Jackson’s  Off The Wall album inspired me to do this.”

“It’s hard to say the moment that I decided to be a singer. It was such a progression that its hard to pin point. I had been to see some great concerts and it made me want to sing professionally - I realized the level I wished to progress to.”

“My favourite musical memory would definitely be seeing Stevie Wonder perform - there was an energy from the stage at the Ottawa Civic Centre - it was like hearing music from the soul.”

“R & B would be my favourite style  but I love all genres depending on the mood I’m in -  which can change daily. Rock would be be next followed closely by country.”

“My favourite top 3 songs would probably be Adele Someone Like You, Etta James At Last - an all time fave is Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody. I have a list of more than 50 but it really is endless.”

“I think one of the important things a student should know is technique is the foundation. It shouldn’t harness you but without it you can only progress so far.”
