Madison Square Garden.
Tea or coffee?
What is your go-to pastime activity?
I listen to a plethora of music on YouTube, for the most part.
If you had to choose a profession outside of the creative world, what would you choose?
Honestly, I have never played with the idea of becoming anything other than an artiste. I began playing the flute when I was very young and I can’t remember a time when I wanted to pursue anything other than music in my life.
