How Do You Describe Your Sound? My sound is unique. You can hear authentic Dancehall in my voice once I’m on a mic.

If you were the offspring of any entertainer (dead or alive) who would be your parents? The Marleys and The Jacksons.

What do you want fans to walk away with when they hear your music? I want fans to walk feeling sexy and confident. My music is to lift your spirit make you happy and to make you want to dance any where despite your shape or race.

What’s next? My next mission is to open up doors that females in the Dancehall fraternity have never open before. There is no category for Dancehall in the Grammy awards and I want to be able to leave them no option but the acknowledge this female from Jamaica for that category.
