When I asked the people who listen to my new album how they would describe it, everyone said the same word: light. I really think this second album is very positive. Compared to my inspiration, I try to lead a happy life without worrying about what people think, and I am inspired by everything around me. I could for example write a song about two people I’ve seen play in the street, or about a mother and her child and my feelings about these situations. For me, inspiration is everywhere. You just have to open your eyes.
The singer who joined the BBC 1 panel of ‘The Voice UK’ last year went on to describe her experience and how it has effected her attitude towards TV shows:
Being part of The Voice UK helped me discover many aspects of my personality, whether good or bad.

When it comes to my music as a singer, it’s much easier than when it is in a program where you can see me as a person with a certain character. I learned to take myself less seriously. ”

Tonight I have the opportunity and pleasure to show all my new versions of songs such as Price Tag or Domino, I am delighted. “
