How did you get started? 

Music is been apart of my life since I was a baby, sometimes my older brother tell me stories of me as baby sitting in his lap singing and he tell me that he always knew music was going to be apart of my life.

My family’s struggle to get a better life and way of living, also motivated me to take my music seriously cause I want batter for my family and me.

I want them to listen to my music and get something out of it. not only that I know what music means and the power it has, it can be motivational make you see things in a way you’d never see it, get away etc, and I know if I can make a person feel good about themselves or see that there worth more or have more then they think, it pushes me to even go greater and beyond. 

Where do you see yourself in five years?
