(F)Jasmine, we’ve said it before, normally the other 14 years old are now in their math or german class or I don’t know & has to go to school How does your everyday life looks like – you are 14. Now you’re sitting here, but how does it looks likes on a normal day Well, uhm, I do spend most of the time on music. I’m home schooled at the moment & I like to go to school, but I still have to learn. I have teachers who teach me at home & I’m focused on music And is school hard for you, or do you say ‘I only do it incidentally’, or is it easy for you? Uhm … I do find it quite easy to combine school & music – doing both. School is of course incredible important. No, I find it easy to arrange both Was that a sentence form your parents: “School is very important”? Or do they tink about what you’re doing? Yeah, school is very important to me, but my parents support me with what I do. They encouraged me to go on with the music. And they would like to see that I’m successful We just saw some footage from your Youtube channel. There you are in your living room or in your child’s room at home & filmed yourself while singing. How did you do that? Uhm, so, I get a lot of help from my Mum, she supports me quite well. She knows for example everything about computer filming stuff. She’s in expert in that and yeah, we do that at home & my Mum helps me with camera and yeah, that’s how we do it. (M)Cool! Everything sounds very relaxed and easy going. Now, the album is coming in Autumn & you wrote your songs on your own. Yeah, I have a EP (album) coming out in the late summer and I’ve wrote plenty songs on my own You seems to have a very special relationship to the Germans. You worked with a German producer, a German DJ. Who was that happened? Uhm, well, I think, okay so, both – Robin & Felix are Germans & I also don’t know why the people german I work with are German, but I like them They work for the same record label & he contaced me over the channel & said ‘hey, I’d like to show you this’. I’ve listened to it & I like it – I’d love to sing it And with Felix I’ve posted a cover song on Youtube from “Ain’t Nobody”, he found it & remixed it. Now you are 14 and a shooting – what are your plans for the future? We get the feeling that you’ve come a long way. Uhm, the plan for the future is to keep doing music, keep doing what I love, traveling around the world, performing for everyone.
