Interview with ChloeJ

Iain: When did you first start singing?

ChloeJ: I started singing ever since I basically came out of my mom! I actually started taking singing lessons when I was 5, and I have been singing ever since. My mom told me that when I was younger I always used to say, Oh, I m gonna be a famous singer when I m older! I don t remember saying it, but I guess I have always enjoyed singing.

Iain: Do you have a certain style you enjoy singing?

ChloeJ: I really like singing RnB because I think I have that soul in me. Beyoncé really inspires me. She can dance, act and sing, and I can do those things to, so I hope I can become like her one day.

Iain: Who are your favorite musicians?

ChloeJ: Beyoncé, Alicia Keys, Mariah Carey, Usher one of my all time favorites. I started listening to him ever since I was in elementary school. I also like Neyo.

Can you do any Usher dance moves?

No, but I can dance. I can t do the moonwalk yet, but I am practicing! It would be something cool to learn.

Iain: What inspired you to sing?

ChloeJ: I started to like singing, and listened to the radio when I was younger and I always used to sing along. I loved it and I want to touch people s lives through singing.

Iain: Who would you most like to go on tour with?

ChloeJ: Beyoncé would be really fun, Lady Gaga. I think she s really weird but she s cool. She would be great to talk to!

Iain: Are you interested in fashion?

ChloeJ: When I am older I hope to design some clothes. I am really into fashion and I guess I have my own style. I kind of follow what everyone is doing but I put my own touch on it.

Iain: Do you want to play roles in movies later?

ChloeJ: I have been in a music video and some feature films such as Edges of Darkness where I was a zombie. I really like this show called The Secret Life of the American Teenager It s a TV show here in the US and its really good, and Id like to be in something like that. It s on ABC family. I d play the main character, someone who s funny, but serious too.

Iain: What do you like about acting?

ChloeJ: I think it's cool putting yourself into someone else s perspective and not being you for a second. I think its cool to be in someone else s shoes and to think what they would be thinking.

Iain: Are you recording any tracks?

ChloeJ: A couple of weeks ago I started recording 3 new songs in Las Vegas with Producer MarvelousJ. He's really fun to work with. I have 3 songs with him, and we are waiting for them to be mixed and hopefully they will be on the next album. We are working towards that.

Iain: Do you have a message for people wanting to achieve success?

ChloeJ: If you want to be something like an actor or singer or anything really, just believe in yourself and keep practicing. Don t let anyone tell you that you can t do it because you can, if you really believe. Practice makes perfect. That s what I learned, and my mom always tells me that even when I don't really want to practice. It really does work out in the long run. Keep doing what your doing, and hopefully you ll get there one day!
