Meet 21 year old Makenna from Tampa, Florida
"My main purpose for creating this was because I had trouble falling asleep, so I started listening to it before going to bed. I never expected to have any followers, much less 4,000 followers, and counting."
What is the best concert you've ever been to and why?
The Chainsmokers by far! They were so different from the other concerts i've been to. I enjoyed the stories they shared. For example, Drew Taggart told a story about a post on twitter saying Dj's aren't real musicians because, all they have to do is press a button and the music plays. To prove them wrong, he played the entire next song entirely on a keypad he was holding.
Do you play any instruments? If no, which instrument do you wish you could play?
I like to sing, and I was in a chorus in high school. I actually took voice lessons all throughout high school and had voice recitals, but I'm too shy to sing in public.
Do you have a life slogan?
Absolutely, my mom always said 'Every mistake is an opportunity to learn." That has really helped me in life because I do make mistakes and it's all about what I learn from them.
If you were a singer, what current living artist would you like to collaborate with?
I think I would like to collaborate with either Hailee Steinfeld or Selena Gomez. Both are very big inspirations for me, and I have been following their music for a while now. I love how real they are in their songs, and how they express their true feelings. Selena Gomez talks about her relationships, which I can relate to, and Hailee encourages girls to love themselves just the way they are. I just think both girls are amazingly talented, and inspirational.
Is there anything else you'd like to share with the world?
I was very surprised when I got a facebook message from a musician asking me to take a listen to his music, and consider adding it to my playlist. Now, I've lost count of how many people have asked me to do the same thing. So, the first musician that asked me, I have actually become quite close with, and we've kept in touch. He told me that by putting his music on my playlist, helped him find his bandmates, and even sent me 2 free t-shirts from his band!
