Tell us about your first concert experience:
My first performance was at my high school actually. I was nervous at first, but was surprised to see that the crowd appreciated what I had to offer as a performer.
If you couldn’t be a musician, what would you be doing instead?
I’d probably be a lawyer.
If you could collaborate with one artist, living or dead, who would it be and why?
Jay-Z because he is regarded as such a legend. As one of the best rappers and artists of our generation, he is someone I’d like to be able to share a record with.
If you became President, what is the first action you would take?
I’d work on healthcare reform. I know it’s easy to say, but that would definitely be my main focus and I hope that it continues to be a focus of current and future presidents.
