The 14-year-old singer and former America’s Got Talent competitor says that this album is about “the awakening” of herself “as an artist and a person.”
“I’m now 14 and growing into my artistry,” she tells JJJ.
She also opened up about how she prepares her voice for performing, most memorable fan moment and who her dream singer for a duet is.
JustJaredJr.com: Which song on the album was the most challenging vocally and why?
JA: “Vocalise” was the most challenging – it has enormous range and has to be very fluid with long phrases – I wanted to do it as a challenge!
JJJ: How do you prepare your voice for a performance?
JA: On the day of a show I try not to speak too much and I avoid foods like dairy, cofee etc. I tend not to eat before a performance. I did a little warm up before I walk on stage – I’m then ready to go!
