While 2016 has had many unexpected world wide surprises, for me, it was a year of lots of personal and artistic growth. In this blog, I review the experiences that defined the past 363 days for me.


This year I had the opportunity to travel to several different countries I had never had the chance to explore. The artist in me seeks new challenges which in turn helps inspire new songs and creations via experiences lived. I was able to Vlog about my trips and create videos (25 total) I’ll treasure for the rest of my life, and I'm very proud of this accomplishment. These are the places I was able to visit in 2016:

  1. Puerto Vallarta & Guadalajara, Mexico
  2. Kona, Hawaii
  3. Paris & Versailles, France
  4. Malaga, Tarifa, & Madrid, Spain
  5. Tangier, Morocco
  6. New Delhi, Agra, Jaipur, Jodhpur, Udaipur, & Amritsar, India
  7. Bangkok, Krabi, Chiang Mai, & Phuket, Thailand
  8. Sydney, Australia


Being the music lover that I am, I had to compile a list of albums that got me through this year. My FAVORITE albums of 2016 (in no particular order):

  1. Rihanna- ANTI
  2. Beyonce- Lemonade
  3. Britney Spears- Glory
  4. Kanye West- Life of Pablo
  5. Ariana Grande- Dangerous Woman
  6. Sia- This is Acting
  7. One Republic- Oh My My
  8. Jojo- Mad Love

In 2016, I attended 3 concerts I loved:

  1. Beyonce
  2. Britney Spears
  3. Lauryn Hill 


On the love front, I’ve been completely consumed with my career and life that I honestly, haven’t had time for a relationship. However, I am open to one only if the right person who understands and supports my career and life were to come around. I’m very independent and am enjoying my single life at the moment. The only love relationship I have time for is with me, myself, and my career.


I met with Kelis twice (whom I LOVE!)

I released my EP “Dripping in Gold” containing 5 songs

Met a lot of NEW amazing wonderful people

Found out about music placements of my songs on TV/Ads

Worked on a song with Richard Harris (who I love and admire)


In conclusion: 2016- I want to thank you for all the wonderful experiences and blessings I had the opportunity to live. Cheers to an even better 2017!! Can't wait to share all the new projects I'm working on!! Thank you for your love and support! Love you guys!! <3
