I’ve always enjoyed singing, but I didn’t do it as a kid. I didn’t go to stage school or anything, everything was always about the dancing. I always felt like I could sing a bit. Like you can tell when someone’s out of tune, and I was like, ‘I’m not out of tune. I just need to learn to do it properly, with technique.’
It should be easy, like, that’s my comfort zone.
What I do now is just acknowledge the fact I’m nervous and try not to fight it or resist it.
