I have been singing since I was very small. I have been running my own karaoke for over 12 years.
During the past few years, I have started to perform at local open mike events. My vocal coach used to play guitar for me, and encouraged me to start writing my own songs. Unfortunately she is now no longer available so I need to find a guitarist to work with on both covers and originals.
