I've grown up in music. My mother, sisters, brother always were singing and dancing. My older sister had a song out in the 80's, my uncle had music studios. Music was always there. It's only the last couple of years that I told myself that I have to try at least, even if the things went wrong. Just to know that I did it. I made music.
