How do you continue to challenge yourself..
I listen to a lot of great music, and always focus on learning and growing pushing myself out of the comfort zone.

A am most afraid of…
Fear is something that I seldom think about. I believe in order to make it, you have to be bold and fearless.

Music began for me when…
Music has always been a true passion of mine, and my only vision has been to touch people’s lives through my voice and songs. I started singing when I was 5 years old.

Hurdles..
The music business is all about networking, and often releasing new and interesting content. I am blessed to work with talented people in the industry, who can guide me through this challenging road.

When I close my eyes…
This song is very close to my heart, it promotes love & passion in such a rhythmic way. I have always been interested in EDM dance music, which I believe to be very uplifting and energetic. The song is all about my own personal feeling. Every night when I close my eyes going to sleep, I would feel the true presence of Universe, God or whatever you want to call it. During making this album, I decided to share this unique experience, hoping to awaken the same feeling in the listeners and gain many new fans to help me promote the message of Love, Unity & Peace.

San Diego, California…
I live in the Sunny San Diego, and it’s a little challenging to do music here. I enjoy walking, listening to all kinds of music and watching a good movie.

Social Media..
I am currently active on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, they are all great if used correctly. I think having such powerful tools in today’s industry is a jump start for Artists to be found.

I would love to have 5 minutes alone with…..
Celine Dion, since like me, English was her 2nd Language also, and I admire her for managing to become such an Icon in a short time.

Popular Trends..
There is a lot of great talents out there, and I believe in order to be heard, you have to focus on songs which are trendy and popular.
