"I love a good quality jean in black or dark blue and a white V-neck and a blazer. The sockless shoe look during summer is always fun, too. I love a good designer belt to pop off the solid colors. Currently, a black and gray Louis Vuitton belt is doing the trick.

Blue jeans and a white V-neck make me feel most comfortable. I also have these amazing Kooples black pants that are so comfortable. You can wear them with a sneaker and also a great dress shoe. When I’m performing, I’m usually in all black. Or all black with a pop from a light blue jean jacket or burgundy windbreaker. I love a good quality sweat pant when I am backstage or rehearsing. Those hours can be very long, so I like to be comfortable.

My musical influences range from Celine Dion and Barbara Streisand to Freddie Mercury and Elvis. I draw so much from them – different vocal techniques to stage moves and ways to work a stage. I am a curious person and always learning ways to be better. Not perfect, but better.

Being on The Voice was such an amazing, powerful experience that taught me that my instincts were far more correct than I thought. I gained a huge sense of self on the show.

I absolutely love the 401 – it’s so dope! We have city, beautiful farms, and amazing shoreline. The culinary field in general is so over-the-top. I’m proud to be from Rhode Island.

I draw so much inspiration from stories and comments from my fans. They show me so much strength and I am eternally grateful for the love they show.

So excited to have released a brand new single and music video called “Soldier.” I love the theme and topic of this song. It’s about believing in yourself and standing your ground in this crazy world. Also, my annual Christmas concert will be December 15 at The Vets in Providence!"
