Personal Quote:

I have been singing anonymously my whole life. I have sung the hooks on a lot of rap and R'n'B songs - I just never took the credit. Music has been a part of my soul since I was born. It's something that I have always done, but I have done it very quietly. I'm also a serious karaoke aficionado. I even have a T-shirt that says 'I love Karaoke'. See more »
