What's In Your CD Player Right Now
"Acoustic Soul" by India.Arie
Why Do You Want To Be An AMERICAN IDOL
I want to touch people's lives. I feel that when you are given a gift, you should use it to give back. And what better way to reach so many people and be able to do so many good things.
Favorite Judge? Why?
I would have to say Paula Abdul, just because I knew of her first. But Simon and Randy are growing on me.
Least Favorite Judge? Why?
I like them all.
Anything You Would Not Change To Become The American Idol?
I would have a hard time cutting my hair too short or getting a relaxer.
What are you going to call your first CD?
I wanted to name it "Brown Sugar", but that's already taken.
