How did you hear about Metro Idol?
My Family, My Aunt insisted on me to take on the challenge

Where and Which night did you perform your preliminary?
Z Grill Bar Flower Mound on a Tuesday

How long have you been singing? and when did you realize your passion for singing?
Since I was 5 , My mom was/is a band performer and growing up watching her seemed like something I would like to pursue too growing up ! She would throw me up on stage to do some song sets on my own at about 8/9 years old and then I got into doing voice over commercial work at Luminous Sound here in Dallas!

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 you apart!
Well I was a teen mom I had my beautiful daughter at 17 in highschool and graduated with her in my belly shes now Seven <3 , and then I had my son at 19 ! hes now 4 years old ,super handsome ,but a bit of handful lol , because of being a full time single mom they are my main priority so i haven’t been able to sing publicly up until now (: I would like to someday join a band and perform my own music/covers soon myself ! I Play guitar,Viola,ukulele,Piano and write/record my own music on the side at home .Music and being a mom is basically my life , I am also a dog mom as well right now she is purple for halloween . I Organically dye her for holidays/special occasions with Manic Panic from my local Sallys haha. As a child I’ve always had a joy for singing. My family always threw me on stage /made me sing publicly often and honestly -getting positive feedback from strangers was a big confidence boost to keep help me continue performing/working on myself musically.
This competition would help out not only financially for my kids and myself ,but i would also invest more in myself musically !
Thank you for this opportunity !
