It was great meeting up with Chris Samuels and Tashna B of Vision Music Records and chatting about the future. Here is a little snippet about this upcoming star and her journey:
Which artists do you admire and look up to and who would you personally like to work with if you were granted the opportunity? I admire and look up to Celine Dion, Beyonce, Tina Turner, Leona Lewis. The person that I really would like to work with is Celine Dion. When you hear a new song that you can relate to, does it inspire you to get busy writing? Sometimes. Songs do not always inspire me to write. Sometimes I don’t feel what I’m listening to, but yes, when there’s a song that enjoy I will start start writing immediately. If you had a chance to perform somewhere, where would that be? The BET Awards. Do you sometimes get lost in your music? I get lost every time when I’m on stage and listening to music that I love. What does it mean to you, to be an artist? Being an artist to me, means that you have to work for what you believe in. What is your favourite food? I do not have a favourite food. I enjoy a variety of food. Do you have a hobby other then music? Working with people that can not help themselves gives me joy. When did you first realize you want to go into the music industry? At the age of 16.
