BronxNet TV Appearance

Updated: Feb 14, 2019

An experience like no other, just the right way to end 2018. 2019, get yoself ready for the takeover!



I started to think I had fell off the map.. Mentally I knew I wanted to take November and December to organize my life, and that included not doing any shows. So when I was invited for an interview and performance I was reminded that all the work I’ve been putting in this whole year doesn’t automatically disappear. People are still watching, even when you’re not on stage. It was a universal sign that Lendsy, the producer of BronxNet, reached out to me when she did. After I got the call I was super excited to appear on BronxNet TV’s Artist Spotlight Segment November 16th. I had just finished working a lot of shifts with my temp job and I needed something to re-focus me on my arts.


“So when I was invited for an interview and performance I was reminded that all the work I’ve been putting in this whole year doesn’t automatically disappear. People are still watching, even when you’re not on stage.”

Being that the BronxNet TV studio is located at Lehman College, it was an easy travel for me, which I was grateful for, especially since it was the day after the ridiculous snow storm we had! When I entered the studio, I was immediately greeted with smiles and water. Impressed and relieved, I sat on the side with other guests as the crew prepared the set. We did a mic check and honestly my singing was not at it’s best. It was 9:30 in the morning….I don’t even remember the last time I sang that early! Everyone was really nice and down to earth, but the person that caught my eye the most was the host, Rhina Valentin. She was vibrant from the jump--singing, cracking jokes, just overall making everyone comfortable and engaged. She had me dying before they even started filming! And when it was time for us to do our interview, that energy transferred right to the camera.


It legit felt like I was talking to one of my Aunts; the questions and responses naturally flowed and I felt it was my best interview yet. I wasn’t nervous or too in my head and I loved that. Afterwards, I performed Will Be from my project #Delicate. Initially we had a technical difficulty, I couldn’t hear the instrumental track….and we were live! However, the producer quickly instructed the crew to do another take. And that second take felt SO much better! I was more comfortable and wasn’t really bothered by the technical difficulty from before.


Truly, I am grateful for the experience and happy that I was able to close out the year talking and singing on live television. Plus with each interview I only get better and better at sharing my story and why I doing this, the love I have for music and my pursuit with a career in music! Here's to 2019 and on!
