Having a college degree gave me the opportunity to be... well-rounded. Also, the people I met at the university, most of them are still my colleagues now. People I've known for years are all in the industry together.
For me, there's still a lot of room to grow; I'm just happy that I have so much more to give.
I grew up in a community that was bilingual. I've done it for a while, singing in both languages.
If you write songs and if you write music that's very sincere and very honest, it's pop music, but it is pop music with a lot of honesty and a lot of heart.
I was a teacher for a long time. I taught at a community college: voice, theory, humanities. And nowadays, music education is a dying thing. Funding is being cut more and more and more.
If there was any other place I would live, other than Miami, it would be California. It's beautiful. The weather is just gorgeous, I love being here, too.
And for me, it's been, not only where I learned, but the people that I met there. Most of the people that I work with are guys that, one way or another, have been associated with the university.
And my career, the things that have happened have happened because of my music education background.
Oh, yeah, I've always thought of covering some of my influences like Billy Joel, Elton John, Stevie Wonder.
Well, I always wanted to be educated and be prepared.
I grew up speaking both languages, and for me that's really important.
I'm a big believer in education, period.
My style is a very universal sound, which is very close to where I grew up.
A real active music set, based and really concentrated on what the music's all about. That's what I'm all about - singing and a really good strong music set.
I have a bachelor's and a master's in jazz.
