Hometown: Brooklyn, NY
Singing: Change is Going to Come
Song By: Sam Cooke
Who would you say has most inspired you?
I would say I am inspired most by soul music coming from Tina Turner - because of her perseverance throughout her career; Shade - because she is effortless, poised and classy; Adele - because every song is so beautiful and memorable; Then there are Tracy Chapman and Nina Simone. I just love them. They are so different and have refused to conform to what society thinks is "beautiful". They own their blackness and natural beauty. Just simply amazing - and their writing is so real and revolutionary.
How long have you been performing?
A little over 10 years.
HOw did you get interested in Music?
Music is a form of therapy. It was what kept me sane and gave me hope when I was going through a rough time. It was how I found my "voice". By just being Jamaican, the culture itself helps you to embrace music, because there were always stage shows where local & major artists performed - near by.
What is the most fun thing you have ever done?
Well back in 2014 I went camel riding in the desert in Dubai. It was just breathtaking seeing the sunset in the desert, and being still - in the middle of nowhere.
