Beginnings – The Choir

As many have, I started in the church choir, but I became an artist when I was given a poetry assignment at age 12. By the age of 14, I was a vocal music major in high school, learning how to incorporate my gifts of music with a unique way of using words. At a young age, music and poetry became my way of uncensored expression, and the vehicle that began to help me make sense of the world’s complicated matters.

Philosophy – 2017

My goal is to take my talents and abilities to the world stage and be unguarded and honest with my music, while opening minds and elevating a global take on how beautiful the song of life can be, even when the pitch and rhythm may seem a bit off. This is the viewpoint I speak from.
