What is the most inspiring place you have performed, and why?
The most inspiring place I’ve performed at was in Morocco for the “Tolerance” show, with a variety of other artists in front of 300,000 people, beachfront. It was for a great cause that encouraged world peace.
You spend a lot of time in Montreal, what do you love most about it?
What I love the most about Montreal is the delicious food; I’m a fatty at heart. Also, the shopping is amazing! But most importantly, I love the European feel to it.
What is your favourite restaurant in Canada, and why?
My favourite restaurant in Canada is “Tre Marie” located in Montreal. The ultimate in comfort food, it’s like a home cooked meal - mind you I’m not Italian.
Who would your dream dinner party include? Where would it be and what would you order?
The guest list to my dream dinner party would include Audrey Hepburn and Cookie Monster along with my closest family and friends. I would invade my manager Vito’s backyard for a pool party and have hot dogs, hamburgers, cotton candy and of course, cookies.
What excites you about your job?
The most exciting thing about my job is the opportunity to do what I love every single day. I thrive off of learning from my experiences in an effort to better myself as an artist.
What defines success to you?
I would define success as doing what you love and surrounding yourself with happiness.
What is the best advice that someone has ever given you…did you follow it?
The best advice that someone has given to me is to ALWAYS be myself and to be open minded to all sorts of critics. It can be very easy to lose yourself in this business.
