I always wanted to be a singer, a popstar...for Jesus. Sounds cringe but it’s entirely true. The dream I had since being a little girl was about to come true. But I couldn’t imagine what would happen next…
After spending many years chasing opportunities, making sacrifices, and working hard, things suddenly took off for me. In 2013 I was scouted for a TV show called The Voice UK. I had my doubts about going on a reality talent show, but I decided to give it a go.
And before I knew it, I was secretly working with will.i.am in the studio most nights and was a signed artist to Universal Records before my second live show. I flew to LA shortly after the show ended and spent most of a year working in the famous Record Plant recording studio with Will and the top songwriters of the industry.
I toured with will.i.am around Europe in massive arenas. I toured with Jessie J in front of thousands in the UK and sang on stage with her. I performed for Carole King alongside Lady Gaga, Alicia Keys and Pink at a Grammy event. I was living the dreams I had for myself, and they were incredible, amazing, and... so unbelievably lonely.
