First concert I went to was Summer Jam 2013
New Jersey Met Life Stadium ! I won tickets and Mariah came to sing with Miguel, Lil Kim and Fabolous performed. Nicki Minaj and also Rick Ross was there too! A great show.
Tell us about your first performance.
I had many performances growing up, but I say this year was when I started taking my craft seriously and I performed at SOBS. It was with major record labels showcase which was great to meet the A&R’s, drewski and network! It was scary until they called me, and then I felt like a boxer getting in the ring and it was liberating.
What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
My friends say I’m fearless, and one time I went to The Dominican Republic by myself. I had a blast met strangers and even rode on a buggy with one the locals to the other side of town. I did good for not knowing any Spanish.
