Why do you love to perform?
I love to perform because I feel emotions through music that are not felt the same way when speaking because of the song dynamics. Performing feels like an escape from reality, especially when reality gets tough. Singing is a way to embrace and express all types of emotions and then share it with the audience so they can feel it too. Music is the greatest gift one can receive.
