Watching her sing sends chills down my spine, and that's in a good way she intended.


She can sing this real high notes on the chorus, and then switch to the lower notes on the bridge. Her range is incredible!!


She is amazing. I hope she makes it BIG as she deserves it. I can't stop listening & watching her videos. She's talented, beautiful & captivating!!
