Hey y’all, it has been an exciting few weeks for me! I just had the opportunity to sing at South by South West (SXSW) in Austin, Texas, and it was a great experience, as it was my first time to perform at SXSW! I got to eat some awesome tacos from Guero’s Taco Bar, and sing in a really cool city, and got to meet some other amazing performers… I was very very excited because several of my family members that lived in Austin came out to support me. Another highlight was that I was finally reunited with one of my really good friends from Dubai. Shortly after I moved back to Texas, she moved from Dubai to Austin, and after four years of trying to get together, we finally did! 🙂
A few months ago, I applied to a Music Business camp/summer session at New York University, and a few days ago, they emailed me and told me that I had been accepted into their program! So, this summer I will be going to New York for a week. I will be doing many things business and music related. I will be working with many industry professionals, attending some concerts, and classes to learn all about what the music business is about. Hopefully I will be able to stay a couple days after the camp to sight-see, shop, and to see some Broadway musicals!
I also had a meeting with my vocal producer, Jaytel (who I have been working with on the project for the past year). We talked about putting the final touches on my EP… We picked out some pictures for the cover, and talked about release dates, and a release party! 🙂 Hopefully within the next month or so, I will have my next single out on iTunes, and I will let y’all know when it will be released! Stay Tuned! 🙂
