With her sights set on national success, she is in the studio preparing to release her debut EP/album and continues to stay busy with modeling and acting opportunities.
Here is True in a conversation with GOGO magazine.
1) When did your journey as a musician begin?
My journey as a musician began at the age of 3. I had sung “last night” by Az yet in front of my entire family embarrassing my parents lol. It’s been history ever since.
2) Tell us about your different professions.
I am a singer, songwriter, dancer, musician, actress, model and during covid a phlebotomist. I was a frontline worker as well working at the hospital.
3) Which has been your first track?
My very first track “School Girl Crush” was recorded when I was about 10 years old with my sister and her best friend. I was in a girl group.
4) Who has been your inspiration?
My family mostly. Especially my 5-year-old niece. She looks up to me and she sings as well. When I look into her eyes it makes me go harder. Music-wise I’d have to say, Toni Braxton. She wasn’t afraid to sing in her low register and still be feminine. Whitney Houston, because her voice was one of a kind. Aaliyah her tomboy style is unmatched to this day, and Teena Marie because of her originality, and musical choice blend is the most memorable moments of my life.
5) Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?
I see myself touring the world, inspiring millions to live their dreams and to follow their hearts. Really just Acting, performing, and creating.
6) Which has been your most memorable project or song?
My new single is actually a moment for me. It’s based on a true story of mine of a bad relationship I’ve been through. So this new project means more to me than anything.
7) Tell us about the story of signing to Sky’s the Limit Entertainment’s Label?
I actually have known Travis (one of the owners of the label) for a long time. We worked together on several projects, but God had plans and pretty much just put us together. It worked out this way and I couldn’t be happier. We started on a compilation project for a TV show but that grew into me signing with the label and the best is yet to come.
8) Share some of your achievements with the magazine.
I would have to say signing with Sky. Having a team and successfully releasing a single independently is amazing and to know the best is yet to come just makes me more excited.
9) How was life in quarantine?
I live in Atlanta, so it didn’t really stop. LOL
