    With musical influences such as Michael Jackson, Chris Brown and Usher, I gained a passion for singing, dancing and performing as a child.

I had sung Chris Brown's Yo (Excuse Me Miss), and received a lot of positive feed back from that performance so from there, I began to take my dream of being a professional musician much more serious.
