Hi Sunny please tell us a little about you?
Hi, I’m eleven years old. I’ve been dancing since I was 3 and singing since I learned how to talk. I love to perform in front of a live audience and I love to visit sick children in the hospital and make them smile when they hear my music.
How did you get started singing and dancing?
My dad would show me videos of Michael Jackson and we would love to watch him perform. I thought “Man, I would love to perform in front of crowd like that and I would love to be a positive role model to all those kids like he was”.
Did you go to dancing or acting school?
Yes I took my first dance class in Dallas when I was three. It was hip hop and ballet. My first acting class was with Catherine Sullivan in Lewisville, TX and I continue to take both acting and dancing classes.
Describe your sound in 3 words?
Energetic, powerful and passionate.
Who influenced you and why did you choose to make music?
Mostly Michael Jackson influenced me in what I do. I chose to make music because it’s what I love and its what I’ve always dreamed of since I was little.
Tell us about your single “LIB”?
It’s basically about me, I’m the lightning trapped in the bottle trying to get out so everyone can get to know who I am.
Do you ever get nervous to perform?
No because when you really love something that much, your excited to express what you love.
Who is your biggest fan?
Actually my family is my biggest fan.
What type of music do you like listening to?
Tell us about the experience to work with talented people like Sho-Tyme and Damon Sharpe.
It is an amazing experience to learn from two very talented people and get to know things from different people’s experience. They are so fun to be around. There’s always positive energy going around.
Any future performances that you want to share with us?
Yes, there is. On July 31st I will be performing at the Wildabeast convention.
Who is your role model?
I have multiple role models that I look up to, including Michael Jackson & Taylor Swift.
How would you describe your fashion style?
I would describe my style as youthful, hip and different.
What are the 3 things you can’t live without?
God, family and hope.
Five years from now you will be…
In five years, I’ll be sixteen and hopefully I will be inspiring others to work hard and believe in themselves and to pursue their dreams.
If you could go open up for any artist on tour right now who would it be?
I would love to open up for Taylor Swift.
