What has been your proudest moment in life so far?
My proudest moment in life so far has been making it this far in the America Idol Competition, making it to the top 36 is an achievement in itself.
What is your definition of an AMERICAN IDOL?
Being an idol is more than being an artist. You have to feel it, want it, and be willing to be you. You cannot be anyone else but you, and you have to hope that you is good enough. Everyone has their own definition of an Idol, mine just happens be pretty simple. There is no definition, life is what you make it, and you are who you are, and if it happens to be the American Idol great!
Why do you want to be an AMERICAN IDOL?
Why does anyone want to be the American Idol? I love to sing, perform, and express myself to the world. Since music is how I do that there is not better place for me than the stage. I am not fake, and I am a great role model, but most of all because I'm true to myself, my music and I want the world to share the passion and my passion of music with me!
Do you think the audition process was fair?
Yes definitely, and even if I had been cut I still would have though it was fair because in this competition the best one shall win!
Who is your favorite judge and why?
I like them all, they're all so different and they're real, they speak the truth and I love that! The truth may hurt sometimes but it will help you to grow when you realize what the truth really means!
Who is your least favorite judge and why?
Once again, they're all great and everyone needs to stop bashing on Simon. He just knows his stuff, that's all!
What advice do you have for other hopefuls?
Just be you and never compromise who you are, anyone. I didn't change who I was at anytime in the competition to get ahead. I stayed myself and that's why I'm here.
What would people be surprised to learn about you?
They wouldn't be surprised about anything really except I am the biggest softy and romantic ever! Neither my image nor music really shows that, so it could come by surprise!
