My Mom and Dad taught me to play "Heart and Soul," on the piano when I was 6 and from then on I have been figuring out how to play. I wrote my first song on the piano at age 11 and still play it to this day! I found out I could sing when I was 11 years old at a family reunion in Charles City, Iowa. My sister, Jeni, dared me to sing karaoke. The only song on the list I knew was Whitney Houston's version of "I Will Always Love You." I think that was the moment everyone in that room knew I was destined to be a singer.
What was the first concert you ever went to?
The first concert I ever went to was Backstreet Boys when I was 16. The only thing I remember was thinking how crazy it was that all these girls were screaming so loud!
Who was your biggest musical influence growing up?
Whitney Houston has always been my biggest influence, vocally, and will probably always remain in that position.
Are you in a band? Have you been in bands?
When I lived in Indiana I sang with a band called No Net with Toby Myers, Moe Z, and Craig Koons. I also sang backup vocals and did guest spots with other bands, including Rich Hardesty. In California I sing with Jeremy Buck and I sing backup vocals for Keila Stewart's gospel group.
If you could jam with anyone, who would it be?
If I could jam with anyone it would definitely be Whitney, but that can't happen now so my second choice would be Aretha Franklin!
What's the biggest audience you ever performed to? What's the smallest?
When I was 17, I travelled to Fargo, North Dakota to sing the National Anthem for an Olympic Trials wrestling match. I will never forget the moment I stepped up to sing. I don't know how many people were in that audience but it was in the thousands! I have also travelled all over singing the national anthem.
