What was your childhood like?
I always had dreams of doing something great and because of that I developed an unquenchable passion for music and the arts, with the help of my grandmother the late Kayla Lockhart Edwards. I spent so much time with, I used to be called her “shadow”.  I was always in plays and productions and when I wasn’t doing that I was travelling the world with my mom.
