R: Tell us a little bit about yourself.

A. I was born in Chicago, but I was raised in Trinidad, and moved LA when I was 16.

R: What do you do in your spare time?

A: I like to go to the movies, play soccer, facebook, twitter, and of course listen to music!

R: How long have you been singing? Did you always know that you wanted to become a singer?

A: I started singing at the age of 8. There was always music around the house. I always knew I wanted to be a singer.

R: Do you play any musical instruments? If so, how long have you been playing?

A: I play a little guitar and I used to play the steel pan (steel drum) in Trinidad.

R: Tell us about meeting Nick Cannon.

A: Well my producer Reo, set up a day for us to meet, and after two weeks when it didn’t happen I was like, this is never gonna happen. Then, one day Nick walked in and I was playing it cool on the outside, but on the inside I was crazy excited! I mean, it was Nick Cannon. So, I sang for him and within 5 minutes he was like, let’s do this!

R: How would you describe your music?

A: It’s like a cross between American pop music with an island twist. I call it BOBW…..Best of both Worlds!

R: Tell us about your new single “Spending All My Time.”

A: Well the song is written and produced by The Jam. When I first heard it, I loved it and knew it was a hit! It’s the kind of song that anyone can relate to. Whether it’s about a girlfriend, someone’s boyfriend, or a family member, it’s just a feel good song that everyone can relate to.

R: I read that you co-wrote some of you songs. What is your song writing process? How do you come up with the ideas for your songs?

A: Sometimes I may have an idea and we’ll start working around that or I’ll hear a track that the melody just jumps out at me from. Song ideas come from different experiences and things like that.

R: What is your favorite song to perform and why?

A: “Spending All My Time”. I like when the audience sings along with me. And, the choreography is pretty fun too!

R: Where can people get your music?

A: You can get my music on iTunes, and youtube has a lot of my videos as well.
