THREE BIG ANNOUNCEMENTS!

I have been sitting on some VERY exciting news. Some of you already know, but now that I’ve reached a new milestone on YouTube, I figured it was the perfect time to share the good news with everyone!! Thank you all for the support and belief in me! Many exciting things to come!

Update | Illinois’ Got Talent

Hearing the Lt. Governor of Illinois, Juliana Stratton, and the state’s top LGBTQ radio host, Jonny Gray, rave about my work today on Illinois’ Got Talent was unreal. I am so honored and humbled. I did not win the audience vote, but the response from the judge’s panel was exactly what I needed. I face a lot of doubt and insecurity about my work (as I think most artsits do), so getting their feedback meant the world to me. Thank you to all who supported me and the well wishes. I’m so thrilled I got to be a part of it!!! 🙂
