Q: i would like to know what is your middle name? when did you find out this singing talent of yours?
A: My middle name is Ruth after my grandmother on my mother's side. I used to not care for it so well, but now that I am older I really appreciate having a name as meaningful as the one I was given. I have always had a love for music for as long as I can remember. I would sing loud in the car to every song on the radio. I would sing through the house, down the streets, in stores. I didn't care who heard, I wanted them to hear. Once I hit high school is when I really decided to pursue it as a career choice, and now not only has music become my career but my entire life. Music changed my life in many amazing ways, and I wanted my music to do the same thing for someone else. I don't look at singing as a talent par say, but more of a gift that I was lucky to have been given. I think anyone can, and should sing if that is what makes them happy. It could just be singing in the shower, or singing along in a car. It is freeing even if no one is listening.
