What is your earliest memory of music? And, how did you get started in music?
My earliest memory of music was my mom playing "The Sweetest Taboo" by Sade on Saturdays as she cleaned. I believe I was around 5. I always wanted to do music at a young age, but we didn't know how to start.My Mom happened to be in the hair salon and started chatting with someone; she mentioned that I sang and a couple of weeks later I was with her and that same lady put me on the spot She asked me to sing in front of everyone in the salon and I did. She called a producer she knew and I sang for him on the phone, then we met and that's where it all started.
