WORSHIPPING WHITNEY

I started singing in choir at the church next door to Whitney Houston's [in New Jersey], and everyone used to say, "You're the next Whitney."

COLLEGE CAN WAIT

I was studying political science but left to do a tour of Hairspray. Everybody was like, "But you're at the top of your class!"

TRAINING FOR FAME

It was like a two-month boot camp. I learned to play Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata."

READY FOR STARDOM?

I'll put on my seat belt and strap myself in!
