Personal Quote:

When I first heard those references used towards me, I found it incredibly hurtful. I'm a girl who knows what she wants. I am outspoken. I am strong and I think that sometimes a strong woman with an opinion is called a diva. If a man is strong and opinionated, he's considered powerful, but if you're a woman, it's regarded negatively.

Trivia:

She has wide vocal range. Her range is Eb3 (Give Your Heart a Break) to D6 (the beginning of the Diva episode) In an interview, she revealed she is a belter and soprano. She has belted an A5 during Halo/Walking on Sunshine. See more »
