I love music so much and that kind of takes away from the fact that I am missing out on some things. I have always known that I wanted to be a singer and I knew that meant sacrificing some things for my dream. When I am home I hang out with my friends and go to dances, so I try and partake in some of the activities that I miss out on.
I just love the thrill of performing on stage. I believe that singing is something I was put here to do.
My ultimate dream is to become a famous star because I love to sing.
I'm overjoyed and honored to become a member of the Hollywood Records family,-
