Isabela Merced Says This Singer Taught Her How To Sing

Isabela Merced revealed she would copy Christina Aguilera‘s singing when she was younger.

The 19-year-old singer and actress took part in the “8 Bit Melody Challenge” with Seventeen, and when Christina‘s “Genie In A Bottle” was one of the tunes, she opened up about how she learned to sing through it.

“Honestly, Christina taught me how to sing. I would just like copy everything she did in that song, every riff, every inflection,” Isabela said. “Everything that she did, all the vibrato too, I matched it perfectly, and I would work at that. I was like six when I started doing that and that basically, I think, was the reason I sing.”

Earlier this summer, Isabela dropped her debut EP The Better Half of Me, which she said was born out of quarantine. Listen now!

The 18-year-old actress and singer released her EP through Republic Records just seven months after her music debut single “Papi”.

Isabela opened up with us about how her new music came about.

“This EP was born out of quarantine. I’ve been in the studio with my brother just writing songs and working on new ones,” she told JJJ. “I was finishing up ‘Apocalipsis,’ and the idea for it came from that. 5 songs reflecting my growth in 2019.”

“Isolation has really forced a lot of us to be introspective and this EP is an example of that,” Isabela continued.
