I was born in Chicago, Illinois, and grew up on the Eastside and Southside. I was always a fairytale girl.
I started singing in 3rd grade, R&B was my favorite genre and I am influenced by Janet Jackson and Aaliyah, H.E.R, Chris Brown, and Whitney Houston.
I can sing Opera, R&B, Reggae and write my own songs.
