You have a very musical family and grew up surrounded by music. When did you realize you were also musically gifted?
The first time I realized I could sing was when I sang “Where’s The Love?” of the Black Eyed Peas in my room. I was eleven years old, was singing Justin Timberlake’s part of the song and thought I might have sounded good. So, I ran downstairs where my whole family was and said that I might be able to sing. I sang the part of the song, they said I sounded ok and I fell in love with singing. After that, I learned how to play the piano and the guitar. I also played the cello very briefly, but it was more an attempt to feel closer to my grandfather.
Do you think you’ll ever release a song where you play the cello?
I don’t know, because I haven’t picked up a cello in 15 years. It would certainly be a nice challenge, but I’m not sure if the audience will like it.
