| Who is SPark.?
SPark. is exactly what my single Let’s Ride G.I. says I am. Im just a regular girl from the G. I’m sweet, silly, funny, caring, and loyal.I love to wear sneakers, sweats, big earrings, and hats. I love to shop, go out to eat, dance in the mirror in my room. One thing that has always been extremely important to me is my family and friends. They are who has kept me “normal” in the midst of my success. I have found myself in the studio with Kanye West, or on stage with with Faith Evans, Jaime Foxx, who ever and I’m still giggling at a text from my big sis, or a silly email from my Mom. Im a sucker for love as you will hear in the majority of my songs. I still find myself listening to a good love song smiling just like I did when I was 13.
| SPark. The Artist
Im pretty much the same on stage as I am off. Maybe a little more sexy, confident and aggressive. SPark. the artist likes to wear sexy dresses and pumps. When I’m on stage its MY stage. At a young age I learned how to command the stage and control the crowd. I like to have the crown interact with me on stage. I like for fans to sing along with me, and clap and wave their hands. That makes me feel good and let’s me know that everyone is having a good time. As for my music, I like to create music that makes you smile, encourages you, makes you cry (For a good reason), or just makes you wanna dance. I try to be very honest when I write. I lived in Atlanta for 4 years and did a lot of writing for artists down there when I worked with Dallas Austin. I learned so much from that experience that I just took notes and incorporated that into my style of writing. But to sum it up, Im the same off as I am on stage. Always smiling…
| SPark. on Performing
I wanted to perform before I wanted to record. People always tell me thats backwards, but thats the honest truth. I love live bands. Hearing the music blaring from the monitors, and seeing the crown in front me smiling and clapping their hands, that is the best feeling in world. I love to push myself to the max when I perform. My mentor from Indiana University Bloomington Tyron Cooper always told me “You’re only as good as your last gig.” So with that in mind whether is 20 people or 200 Im gonna give everything I have.
Right now I have an album out called “Feels So Good” available on itunes, cdbaby, and amazon.com. I wrote and vocally arranged the entire album with a few samples. I also have a single out called “Let’s Ride G.I.” thats available at www.sparkersings.com I have a song that I just did with Hit Skrewface, and another song with who I like to call “The Mogul” D-Edge. I also have a remix to “Let’s Ride G.I.” that will the amazing Freddie Gibbs on it. Im so excited to be a new member to the Str8 Slammin Family. I love that I’ve know most of these guys for a long time so it just feels right. They treat me like a sister, and I love them for that.
