Interview @rhonda_mcknight

What is the first concert you ever went to?

The first concert I went to  Kelly Clarkson. I've loved her since I was really little.

 Do you sing in the car?

ALL OF THE TIME. I love singing in the car and singing to the people driving beside me. They always laugh and film it.

 How would you describe your style?

My style is honestly inspired by my mood. I don’t have a specific style, it’s just based off of things I like. I see something I think is cool and I make it work. I like mixing different styles a lot.

 What is your favorite everyday attire?

For summer, I love a dress with a cute throw over a jacket. When it gets colder, I love a cool jacket with a button down. Button downs are my favorite thing ever.

Are you a dog person or a cat person?

BOTH. I love animals so much. I plan on having both in the future.

What's your favorite place to eat?

Can you cook? I love Din Tai Fung. It’s this neat spot by my house in LA. It serves my favorite food, SOUP DUMPLINGS! I love cooking and baking too. Desserts are my favorite to make.

Describe your singing style?

My singing style is pop with a mix of a bunch of other styles within it. My voice and style are always growing with me.

Who inspires you as an artist?

A lot of artists inspire me. One of my favorites is Taylor

Swift. She’s just so cool. She has this confidence that is really inspiring and you can tell she loves all aspects of what she does. I respect her for that.

 Do you enjoy touring?

It’s one of my FAVORITE things ever. It’s so fun getting close with a group of people and traveling and then also seeing all of my fans and performing each night. I love making people happy and going on adventures.

If you were a t-shirt, what color would you be?

Why? Oooo this is a tough question. I would be black and white. It’s my favorite color combo and it’s a perfect balance. Ying and yang. :)

 What’s your favorite item of clothing you own right now?

I love this super cute, blue slip dress from Zara. It’s perfect to throw on when it’s hot out and it’s super comfy.

 What are social media platform you most on? What’s the craziest post a fan has sent you?

Instagram is the one I use the post. The craziest post a fan has sent me was probably this really cute video of them crying when she watched my music video. SO CUTE.

 What projects are you working on this year and next?

I’m in the studio working on new music, which I’m super excited about and then I’m hopefully going to tour at some point. I really want to see my CaiBaes in person! I love them!

 What makes someone beautiful?

I think uniqueness is what makes someone beautiful. There is something special and different for everyone and when people embrace that, it makes them so cool and beautiful inside and out.
