I was born into a deeply religious family. Growing up, all secular music was forbidden. My father once locked me in the closet for listening to Britney Spears ‘Toxic’…it also did not help that I wore a stuardist costume and perfected her dance. It was in that dark closet that I realized I needed to come out and make music.
