If you could pick any artist dead or alive to meet — who would it be and why?

Eva Cassidy – she had such magic!

What do you enjoy most about being a vocal coach?

Spending time singing and getting to know beautiful people! I absolutely love the feeling of seeing a singer break through and just kill a song they thought they couldn’t sing. It’s so personal and so magical! I feel lucky to be there with them for those moments 🙂

That's Young Whitney Nichole on the right!
