HCM. When did you start making music and taking it serious?
Joined the church choir as a child and was a faithful member of the school choir Elementary-High School. I frequently performed solo acts in school activities, at concerts and community events, and talent contests. I enjoyed writing poetry and was an advanced writer in school. Throughout school my love for song writing grew stronger and I discovered a soulful sound from within, created my stage name HerSoul and began recording. My first recorded songs were Struggle No More ft Young Nechi and Better Days. I am a versatile artist singing and performing genre of songs ranging from R&B, Soul, Blues/Southern Soul, and Hip Hop.

The vision that I have and the mission that I’m on is way more than music!! Anytime I can brighten others’ lives with this gift and help the next individual keep hope alive I’ve mastered a goal. I wouldn’t say I’m the best but I’m rather effective at what I do.
