What is music to you? What does it give you?

Music gives me ultimate happiness. It's what helps me through a rough day, and what wakes me up in the morning. Without it, life would be dull.

What is your music dream?

To connect my listeners to each other through music. Every person on the planet has at least one song that they LOVE. So if I can spread the love of music through mine, I think I'd be doing something right.

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

The racial inequality, and people's hatred for others.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

I Hope You Dance by Leeann Womack. It is the very first song I ever sang in public at the age of 4 years old. My momma was a KDJ, stood me up on a speaker, and let me go at it. I still remember it like it was yesterday! <3

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Celine Dion is my #1! OTher than that, I love Snoop Dogg, Lil Dicky, Demi Lovato, Adele, and Jojo!

What inspires you to make music?

My husband, and connecting with my audience through my music.

What is the message you want to send with your music?

That no matter what they are going through in life, there is always someone who is going through the same struggle. Keep pushing, never give up on your dreams, and don't let others' opinions define who you are.

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

A bubbly, good nervous feeling. More of an ecstatic feel. Like I'm changing the world one song at a time.

How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

The music is all the same. Id love to have the chance to make it big, and make a different with my words, and not just my voice.

What do you think of Drooble?

It is great so far! Could be very good way to connect with other artists, and get my music heard more as well!

What frustrates you most as a musician?

How people judge you based off of appearance rather than quality and love for the music.

Do you support your local scene as a fan? How?

Yes I do! I recently wrote a jingle for my Ice Cream Parlor sponsor called The Screen Door in Gladewater, Tx. I'm also volunteering to sing Christmas carols downtown for their Christmas celebration. Also, if someone has something they need, or just need to spread the word about an event, I'm on it!

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

Love for their art, and love for the audience! Willingness to take initiative and accept constructive criticism.

Share some awesome artists that we’ve never heard of.
