Tell me a bit about how your career started.
I guess we can say that my career started at 3 years old. I say! My mother-in-law is a singer who sings in different venues and clubs with her band and she used to make me go on stage to sing with them. Not knowing all the lyrics but I was still able to sing the melody and chorus of the songs. I was prepared to be on stage and play from an early age.
-Who inspires you as an artist?
Oh it’s easy Beyoncé! Beyoncé is a true performer/artist who knows who she is and knows what she wants to do. It’s been in the business longer than I’ve been alive and it’s still relevant today. I love her hard work and the time she puts into it. For me, Beyonce is one of the greatest artists and she cares about her music like I care about mine. I could only aspire to be like her when I grew up.
-Tell me about working on TINA?
Working on TINA is super fun and exciting. The cast and crew were very welcoming and we treat each other like family. Being on TINA THE MUSICAL on Broadway is always in the works and ready to perform; 8 shows per week / 7 days a week and giving the same energy as the day before. Honestly I love this. That’s what I love and being able to perform in a Broadway show for an iconic performer such as TINA TURNER on a daily basis is awesome. I can say that I was one of the few to experience the phenomenon of TINA and even to know its history even more.
-Tell me about working on Better Nate Than Ever?
Better Nate Than Ever was super cool too! We had so much fun while filming. Working with Tim Federle was great, he made everyone feel comfortable and made sure we had a great time. I still pinch myself to this day because I can’t believe I’m in a Disney movie with Lisa Kudrow!!! The shock on my face when I saw her walk out of the room. It was such a great experience.
– Who would you like to work with?
I would love to collaborate with Marsai Martin. I think she’s so smart, beautiful and go-getter. I mean becoming the youngest executive producer in Hollywood before she was an adult is such an accomplishment. She is so cool and would love to work with her one day.
-What’s next for you? New projects in sight?
Definitely new upcoming projects can’t wait for you to hear them.
-Tell me a surprising and funny fact about yourself.
Well, I’m actually double-jointed. It freaks my mom out because she thinks I’m going to break something but I reassure her that it’ll be fine haha.
– What are you watching on TV these days?
Currently, I am watching Stranger Things. I like to watch a little horror and vampire stuff here and there. Anything good and as my mother says “kid-friendly”, I watch.
– Anything else you want to say to America?
Keep reaching for your goals and never give up. That’s what I do and the sky is the limit for me. I plan to be on all your TV screens at home singing and performing.
