Madison Square Garden, because that's where all the big leagues perform.
How has music inspired you?
Music has always been a huge part of my life. I listen to music when I'm feeling down or just a certain way. I don't know what I'd do without it!
Do you have any formal singing training?
What album would your friends be surprised you own?
I'm not really sure. I guess the strangest album I own would have to be Etta James, only because she's one of the older artists. My friends are mostly familiar with music that plays on the mainstream radio.
If you could perform with any person or group, who would it be and why?
So many people to choose from! I can't choose ... one of the people would probably have to be Beyonce. So many people compare me to her, I would just wonder how it would sound if we sang together! Plus, she's amazing.
What do you do to unwind after a performance?
I don't really have anything that I do. I just go with whatever comes to me!

Like I said, I've been doing this ever since I was a real youngin' so I've had the practice and experience to work on some things.

I think my genre of music is a lot different from any of the past idol winners or from my competition here. Everyone has their own style and I think I want to go more mainstream more 'Beyonce' style. I want to be the girl that can belt but can sing upbeat songs.
If you couldn't sing, what other talent would you most like to have?
Singing is literally my only talent. Ha-ha. I'd love to learn how to act though.
What has been the most unique job/chore you've ever had?

That I've made it this far! It's actually a lot harder than it looks!

Just another chance to get my name out there. I want to go on tour and make music! I'm ready for it all and am working hard for it!
