How did you get interested in music?

My father, when he was young, was interested in becoming a musician.  His father (my grandad) said no. So he became an engineer instead, but his deep love and longing of music never waned.  My mom also, was on her way to becoming a piano virtuoso, but had to change course due to life and work circumstance.  This was all before I was born.  Right before my first birthday, my father passed away from liver cancer at the age of 49.  It was his last wish that my mom and I go to New York for me to live, go to school and thrive. 

I feel it's my duty to continue on creating and performing music, as I've been given the chance and opportunity to do what my father couldn't.  Luckily, I have the support of my family.  I've loved music since as long as I can remember.  I guess it's in the genes...

WHo would you say has most inspired you? 

Michal Jackson.  There will never be another.  I still can't really wrap my head around the fact that he's gone.

what is the most fun thing you've ever done?

That, my friends, I cannot say :) ...But, the second most fun thing I've ever done is play on a float raft to thousands in a New York City parade.

what would you like to be doing five years from now? 

I'd love to be in a cereal commercial. Lol. I don't know why, but it's been a silly dream of mine.  Or a makeup commercial.  Maybe that's more suitable.  I'd love to go on an arena tour with another artist.  I sang the National Anthem to 30,000 people at Staples Center and it was  quite a rush.  I can't imagine what singing my own songs to that many people - who know the words - might feel like.
