important role in your life as you
N: Yes! Its the one thing I knew I
could do really well.. I played the
piano for 12 years and the violin for six years. I was in a children's orchestra:) Music always came very naturally to me, I understood it, and it made me feel smart and confident.
WW: When did you know you wanted to be a singer?
N: When I was 5 and my dad would rent me Whitney Houston music videos from Blockbuster. We watched Star Search every Sunday! My dad would always sing (in perfect pitch) and my older sister would always sing in church, at family parties and talent shows. She made me want to be a performer..
WW: How did you feel when you were signed to Universal Music Group?

The "Hurry Up and Wait" part. And Dealing with fake people...
