Thank you for chatting with Music Update Central! You just reached over 20 million views on your video rendition of ‘Dancing In the Sky’. What has it been like receiving support from fans about this video? Receiving support from my fans on this video has meant everything to me. Support on any level is overwhelmingly beautiful but this song and video meant everything to me so to get so much amazing support on it is so cool and gave me the courage I needed to chase this dream.
What’s the story/inspiration behind the single? Has this song shaped your musical career? "BOLD" was written by an amazing Nashville songwriter, Corey Barker whom I'd already written a song with, but when he pitched me this song it just spoke to me. It was the song I needed. It's the perfect example of me and how i strive to live and i wanted people to hear it, first thing.
When did you know that you wanted to pursue a musical career? I had always dreamed of becoming an artist but stage fright always kept me from pursuing it. It wasn't until Dancing in the sky went viral that I really went for it.
You’re set to release a new single ‘Bold’ on April 9th. What can fans expect from this song? Yes! I'm so excited! Fans can expect a very fun, upbeat anthem! This is a song that you can blast in your car when you need a pick me up after a bad day, or you can sing along with your friends with the windows down.
MUC Random Question: If you had any superpower, what would it be and why? Hmmm, ok I'm gonna be really clichè here and say flying because I absolutely hate driving. Being stuck in a car is not my idea of a good time.
