The 16-year-old singer opened up about traveling and memorable moments in her career. Check it:
On traveling: “Hawaii. The water is so beautiful, clean and clear. You can still see your hand when you put it in the water. Their mountains are so majestic. Last time i went there, we went hiking on the mountains. We found a waterfall surrounded by exotic purple flowers, I never wanted to leave.”
On her memorable moments: “Receiving the Key to the City of Memphis and building a performing art school for kids. Being able to give kids who share the same passion as me, an opportunity to grow and do what they love in a safe environment, is the best feeling in the world.”
The spots focus on Civil Rights activist Rosa Parks, writer Phillis Wheatley and musician Miles Davis as part of Nickelodeon’s ongoing Voices campaign, a youth-led movement to educate viewers by paying homage to those who have impacted our world.

How to Rock is just days away from making its debut on Nickelodeon and JJJ hears that there’s a big party planned.
We had a chance to sit down and chat with the new cast of the show and star Cymphonique opened up about Kacey Simon, physical comedy and more. Check out what the 14-year-old actress/singer had to share:
JustJaredJr: Hi Cymphonique! Can you tell us about Kacey Simon?
Cymphonique: “I play a girl named Kacey Simon and she starts off as the most popular girl in school. She even has her own clique called ‘The Perfs’ which is short for Perfects, so it kind of starts off as Mean Girls, almost (I love that movie by the way). That’s what they kind of remind me of, her clique. All they really care about is material things and the latest gossip.
“She comes back to school one day with braces and glasses and her Perf friends, they don’t think she’s perfect anymore. So Kacey finds new friends who say, ‘We like you for who you are. We don’t care if you have braces and glasses or if you don’t have braces or glasses. We accept you.’ She winds up being the lead singer of a new band, Gravity 5. Kacey is very passionate. She’s super funny and sometimes she can be a little dramatic and crazy but at the end of the day, she’s always there for her friends and she loves music and performing.”
JJJ: Did you read the book before hand? What Kacey do you like more?
C: “I’m reading the book right now and I love both Kaceys! But I like the spin they put on her for the show. I think book Kacey was a great inspiration for show Kacey. [Author] Meg Haston is very talented.”
