Interview I decided to ask Claudia a few questions in order to help me write my article about Misty, I told her to image herself in her shoes to help me write my article.
Questions: How did you get into music? I’m the daughter of two musical parents who were my musical inspiration.
Where did you grow up? I grew up in a small council flat in East London yet I grew up surrounded by culture which inspired her me to busk and take part in local choirs.
Who noticed you? Island Record label owner Bobby Armstrong.
How did it happen? After a short meeting with Bobby I sung a few covers and mash-up and original songs.
Where was your most recent performance? I recently performed at the Camden Roundhouse Introducing Night. Claudia explained to Fusion, as the support from her fans has allowed her to sell a record-breaking 200,000 singles just in one week! Breaking Rita Ora’s record of 120,000. We were lucky enough to break this fabulous news to her. “I would have never dreamed that any of this would have been possible!” She exclaimed as I could see the tears of joy well up in her eyes
How was your first gig? I was extremely nervous at first but it was amazing to be in that kind of atmosphere, I was so pumped I nearly peed myself!
Who is your biggest inspiration? Bob Marley
Are there any future collaborations you may have? I recently had a collaboration with the extremely successful American star and rapper Kanye West. The song will be released later on this year. It was amazing to work with someone that has inspired me so much, I got so nervous onthe plane but don’t tell anyone that!
What are your plans for the future? I will be continuing to tour the UK this month and I plan to head for the O2 Brixton Academy on the 5th April 2013.
But I also want to hit Europe next.
