You're still young with a very strong voice, who/what inspired you to start singing and how old were you?
Singing was always part of me since I was a baby, but I started singing professionally at the age of 10. A lot of big singers inspired me like Beyoncé, Whitney and Aretha plus others. I also used to watch X Factor and wanted to be there one day so my aim and dream was to meet Simon.
