As a vocalist, television personality, and custom wig creator when did you first want to become apart of the entertainment industry?
I honestly think I was born to entertain or “inspire” through the arts, however it was at the age of 6 when my mom realized my talent and begin to encourage me to develop it.
In terms of music, who inspires you (or what artist do you love?)
I absolutely love, love, love music. A few of the more prominent artist that inspire me are the late Mahalia Jackson, the incomparable Whitney Houston, Brandy, Luther Vandross, India.Arie, Chaka Khan and Stacy Barthe.
How did you began the craft of creating custom wigs for women?
I’ve always had a passion for haircare so I started on myself. As a result of the countless comments from women (both good and bad) and request, I begin to start doing custom wigs.

Vocalist of course which is my gift and as far as talents I’m a makeup artist, fashion stylist, songwriter and dancer…. who knows what else; I’m still discovering gifts (smile).

Trench coats, leather, winter white, red lipstick, big Texas hair, over the knee and thigh high boots. Winter is known to be a Fabulous girls favorite season (besides fall) because you can layer which keeps you warm and you can also play with different prints which will always keep you fashionable and unique in style.

Street regal, high fashion, heavy glam and polished. Lipstick, lip gloss, BANGLES and chunky gold jewelry…. They’re my weaknesses! And my “Crowned Q” signature earrings.
