Recently, I had the honor of interviewing the very talented PreZcotts Sisters.   Continue to read on and learn more about the sisters and about their song “Stay True.”

Relate:  Tell us a little bit about yourselves?

A: My name is AnaLeyna, I’m 17 years old and I am the oldest of my family. I love to write songs and play the piano. Music is really a passion of mine.

C: I’m ChaLyn, I love basketball and love to sing!! I’m 15 years old and have 6 siblings…

R: My name is RaNelle, I have 5 sisters and 1 baby brother. I’m 13 years old.

M: My name is MaRiah, I’m 12 and have 6 siblings and I love to sing with my sisters…

Relate: What is it like singing with your sisters? How long do you practice singing each day?  How do you handle disagreements?

A: It’s fun, we all trust each other and we are completely comfortable together. It makes practicing fun! To keep our voices in shape we try to practice together an hour every day but we are always singing individually to keep our vocals warm.

C: It’s comfortable, familiar…I really enjoy it!

R: It’s really fun. We sing together almost everyday!

M: We have lots of fun and we laugh a lot. I practice everyday…

Relate:  I read that you write your own music.  What is your song writing process?  Do you come up with the words first?

A: My song writing comes naturally… It’s unpredictable how the song will come. Sometimes the music is playing in my head and then the words just flow onto the paper. If there is an emotion behind it, I can write a song in an hour. I thank God for this gift.

C: I didn’t write any of the songs on our new CD “GOSSIP” but, I like to write poems.

R: MaRiah and I wrote “Stay True” on our new CD. The song talks about bullying in school. We are very proud of that song!

M: I co-wrote “Stay True” with RaNelle & AnaLeyna…I hope to write more songs.

Relate:  Tell us about your debut album “Gossip.”

A: Gossip is going to make you smile, laugh, fall in love and it will even make you cry. There is a story behind each song and a message for everyone to go with it. Our album features all types of styles and lyrics. Anyone can listen to this album and enjoy the music it plays. That’s what we wanted and it’s so amazing to see it all come together.

C: Well, it costs $10… (laughs). Its super cool and the songs can be easily loved by everyone. There are happy songs, encouraging songs, and inspirational ones also.

R: We have anything you would wanna listen to on this CD!! I love it!

M: It has an awesome variety of songs…people will really love it!

Relate:  Tell us about your single “Gossip.”  How did you come up with the idea for this song?

A: We wanted to have another upbeat song on the CD that was fun and appropriate for kids all over the world to sing. Gossip is something anyone and everyone can relate to. I enjoyed being a part of writing process; I share the credit with my good friend and co-producer, Aaron Accetta.

C: That was AnaLeyna!

R: AnaLeyna & Aaron Accetta wrote that song in one afternoon!!

M: Rich Correll who created Hannah Montana directed the music video for “GOSSIP”

Relate:  Do you have any plan in the near future of going on tour?

A: We are planning to go wherever our fans take us! If children all over America want to use our music to encourage and support them then we just tell them to let us know! We are on our way! We want to be there for our fans, if a tour gets us there then let’s do it!

C: That would be a dream comes true for me!!!

R: It would be awesome, but I know I would miss my mom, my little sisters and brother.

M: Yes, that would be sooo cool! I’d miss my family though.

Relate:  If you could tour with anyone in the world, who would it be and why?

A: I would tour with Taylor Swift because all of her songs speak to me. I can relate to them and I know boys and girls all over the world can too. I’d love to be a part of that. Hey Taylor, give us a call! (laughs)

C: Justin Bieber because he’s pretty awesome…

R: My family because they are so special.

M: My mom!

Relate:  What singers and bands do you listen to?  What is your favorite song by each one?

A: My favorite artist of all time is Alicia Keys because I love her style. One of my favorite songs is from her album “The Element of Freedom” and it’s call ‘Wait til you see my Smile’. The hook gets stuck in my head for days. I listen to a lot of other music though. My favorite band is The Katinas. They are a brother group just as we are a sister group. We’ve met with them a couple of times and every time they had encouraging words and beautiful voices. I love them.

C: I like Mariah Carey’s old songs like “Someday” “Always Be My Baby” and “Make It Happen”

R: I listen to Mariah Carey and Leona Lewis.

M: I listen to Christian bands a lot. I like “Move” by Mercy Me…

Relate:  What has been your most “Star Struck” moment?  Who was it?  Tell us about what happened.

A: My most Star Struck moment of all time is when I heard The Katinas sing in the Creation Lab Studios acapella.

C: I dreamt I met Justin Bieber the same night that  I watched his movie for the first time…

R: When the Katinas sang just for us.

M: I met the dude from “Shake it Up”…Deuce.

Relate:  What are five things people may not know about you?

A: Hmmm 5 things people might not know about me…
1. I love Oreos… But I rarely eat them.
2. I love driving at night. Lots of green lights and no traffic!
3. I am the oldest but the shortest…
4. Nail art has been my latest obsession.
5.  My favorite car is the latest Cherokee Jeep.

M: I love volleyball and basketball, my 2 little sisters are named Yvana amd Taleya and my brother’s name is Bryton. AND I have the best mom in the world!!

Relate:  What is the best advice you have ever gotten and by who?

A: The best advice I ever got was from my Dad. He always taught me values through his actions. He always told me “you gotta forgive em” and to never hold a grudge because it can eat you up inside. He always gave the best advice!

C: “Stand up for what you believe in, even if you stand alone” – my mom.

R: My mom always told me to stand up for yourself…

M: To stand up for what is right, no matter what…my mom tells me that…

Relate:  What advice would you teenage girls in general?

A: My advice to all the teenage girls out there: Beauty truly does come from the inside. How you treat others is what creates your image. Sure the latest trends and fashions are always fun. But we can’t change the world with what we wear… But we can change the world with what we do.

C: Well it’s easy to get caught up in what everyone is doing (clothing, language, etc.)
Don’t let peer pressure get to you!

R: To “Stay True” to yourself…

M: I don’t know…I’m still 12.

Relate:  Other than this one, what is the strangest question you have ever been asked?

A: I think this IS the strangest question I’ve ever been asked! I’ve been asked funny questions in the past though. The cutest one was “uh are you guys…famous?” after an elementary school show we did recently. I smiled and said “you are what makes us famous” : (laughs)

C: My mom once asked me if I’ve ever tasted nail polish remover? Which is most defiantly strange.

R: I think you just topped it off…

M: You like math? It’s kinda not my favorite.

Relate:  Are you on any social networking sisters if so, which ones and what are their addresses?  Do you have an official website? Do you have a youtube channel?  If so, what is the address?
