“I made this playlist for dancing to my favorite style - contemporary - and also smooth improvisation. songs that make you feel something”
What is the soundtrack to your life?
Homecoming by Beyoncé has really been "giving me life". The live band for the music is lively and backs her powerful tone and lyrics. I love the rawness of her voice and the accompanying music. I can workout, dance, feel like I'm at a concert, cry, and feel empowered like a bad bitch to this soundtrack. Thanks Bey for all you do!
What’s more important to you? Music; or Lyrics? Why?
To me, the music is what makes the rhythm and the flow of the song. Yet, what is more important to me are the lyrics which pull the song together to tell its story and lead it in a moving direction for listeners. Finding words that resonate with them and their feelings at the time.
Favorite artist? Top 5?
Alicia Keys, Drake, Sam Smith, Beyoncé, Bad Bunny - in no particular order
If you had the chance to interview an artist, who would it be? (Dead or alive) and why?
At this point in my musical life, I have been listening to Billie Eilish a lot. She is a little bit younger than me but sings with such meaningful and soulful words. She also was a dancer, so I would just love to chat with her as a friend on a level playing field. I would love to know how she is feeling after the fame. Also, where she gets her inspiration from!
