How long have you been singing and when did you realize your passion for singing?
I have been singing for as long as I can remember! I realized my passion for performing at a very young age starting in parents as a young child. I remember when I was about 8 years old that this was something that I wanted to do! I want to make people feel the amazing power of music like so many of the greats who have inspired and helped me along this amazing journey of life!

Tell us something interesting about you. Could be anything from random/hidden/rare talents, upbringing, challenges you’ve faced or moment(s) from your childhood, etc. This is where you can express what you would like us to know that sets your apart!
I am a newly single mom who has grown up in the service industry and raised by an amazing mother! I have recently started my own baking company Delicious Deserts by Daisy while working full time and raising my amazing son who is following in my footsteps with his love of music. I grew up in parents then moving into dancing. Followed shortly by band where I learned to play every concert band wind interment and joined chorus/theater where my love of music was able to fully blossom! I have used all types of music to help me grow and tackle challenges in my life. I would love nothing more than to share my gifts with the world and help show how music is one of the most powerful tools one can have in this life!
