“The first time I remember being on stage that was when I was in second grade. We had a choir concert and I sang about how to build a paper airplane. I was so confident. I was like, ‘Ooh, I like that here. I like people looking at me. ‘”

“I worked at Barnes & Noble in the cafe. I had actually spoken to my manager about the audition [for Jagged Little Pill], and he told everyone in the store. So they all knew about the hearing before I even got called back. I was in the freezer baking cheesecakes when I got the call. I started to scream. I called all my colleagues and I said to myself: “All of you, I got it! “”

“Each of my family members grew up playing a musical instrument or doing some kind of performance. My mother was a dancer and singer. She was working in a karaoke bar when she was pregnant with me. My grandmother played the piano. My aunt played the clarinet. When I was growing up my mom made a point of doing what I wanted for a career. She is a great support, as are the rest of my family. “

“From Beyoncé 4 album would make an amazing musical. I don’t know how it would all be woven together, but people are really creative. To look at Shredded-it can happen!”
