1. How did you get into the music industry?

It just kind of happened on its own; Destiny! Jaja, I’ve always loved singing, so I joined my church choir where I was surrounded by talented musicians and singers. Later on they asked me to join the tour for a known artist at that time. I said yes and the rest is history! Well on Google, too.

2. What is the biggest message you would like to send to your listeners through your music?

I want my “LuvLee’s” to feel. I want for them to let me take them through a rollercoaster of emotions and provide them with an experience of the stories behind each song.

3. Dream Duet(s)?

Oh my, yes! Yes! And yes! I’m dying to COLLAB with Nathy Peluso, Yendry, Residente, Khalid, and so many more.

4. Could you tell us about what inspired your single "Feel So Lost"?

A moment in my life where life was tough. I let the love of my life slip away, or so I thought he was back then!

5. Any charities or movements you are passionate about?

I looooove working with children, they are the voices of the future. I love working with organizations that support children worldwide and work with them to empower and inspire and provide them with the needed resources. I’m currently an ambassador for Latinas y Lideres who provide feminine items along with school supplies and more to young women in the Dominican Republic.

6. What was it like to see yourself on a billboard in Times Square?

It was a dream come true. My gosh, I still remember that feeling, it was unbelievable, exciting, nostalgic. Nostalgic, because I used to walk by those same streets everyday on my way to work, and always looking up and dreaming that one day I’ll be in one of those big billboards.

7. Any new projects you are working on?

I’m always working on something, I don’t stop! Album coming up, collaborations, a 2022 tour and so much more. Uffff I can’t wait!

8. How can aspiring musicians stay motivated in such a competitive industry?

Authenticity is key. Staying true to yourself for the world to see is refreshing. There is so much of the same out there, that people want to feel relatable to you, and what better way than just being yourself. That’s what makes the difference!

9. Any memorable live performances you can share?

Yes!!!!! Right now, the one that came to mind was when I opened Grammy winning Colombian artist, Manuel Medrano, what a night! Got to meet him, what a being! He was so lovely.

10. Life advice you would give to your past self?

Don’t be afraid, just go for it!
