Her singing idols were Shania Twain, Lee Ann Rimes, and her own grandma, who was once a singer. The future singer always wanted to be in the center of attention on stage: she had never been afraid of public performances. Being a 10-year old girl, thanks to her innate artistry and stage charisma she became a real star in her native town.
