Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.

'I started singing on the age of five in my grandparents' living room. My sister and I used to dress up in my grandmothers old clothes and perform for them. My favourite song was My Heart Will Go On by Celine Dion.
My aim is to inspire people with my music and theatre pieces. I fell in love with drama and music because it is a way of escaping reality and experiencing the beauty of life.'
