If you could meet any singer – dead or alive – who would you want to meet? Why?

I was extremely fortunate to have already met such people. Luther Vandross, Tony Thompson of Hi-5, and the Greatest Entertainer ever, Michael Jackson. Top pick-Michael Jackson, because words could never explain it, except that, he simply was THE BEST@ it!!

What song brings back the most memories for you? Why?

“Kissing Game” by HI-5, brings back the most memories because, I was on the road with them, as the record was blowing up.

What’s your favorite musical era? Why?

The ’90s, because each music genres, had their own identity.

What artist would you most like to work with now? Hmmmm…Brandy.

I would wanna work with Brandy because I love her tone. When I met Brandy in Miami’s Hit Factory, Teddy Riley played some additional vocoder production on her “Full Moon” cd. And she was so professional, sweet & genuine.

What’s your favorite summertime song?

“Kissing game” by Hi-5
