I’m a 15 year old singer from Tyendinaga. I’ve been raised in a musical family of Mohawk, Scottish and Irish heritage. I have a passion for music and when I was eight years old, my brothers convinced me to audition for the television show Karaoke Star Jr. To my surprise I was chosen as the youngest finalist on the show. This was the beginning. I started a Youtube channel during the time on the show, that currently has 22million views and 87 thousand subscribers. Later that year, I was fortunate to win YTV’s “Virtual Next Star” singing contest. Presenting Justin Bieber with his first platinum award at Canada’s Wonderland was part of the my prize.
My life is now filled with amazing musical events, people and goals. I have found that I also love singing old jazz style songs in the style of Sarah Vaughan even.
Now I’m focusing on song writing and will be releasing several originals this year on itunes and can also be followed on Spotify. I’m excited to be part of Dance for Kindness 2016 and have been asked to write one of the songs for this year’s events.
If you are thinking of going down an artistic path, work hard and follow your dreams. Even if it seems like it is not possible, just do it because you love it.
