DC: Tell us a little about the single you released Tuesday.
MC: I’m so excited to get to release this track as my single. It was created with two of my close friends and expresses a message I strongly believe in. There’s so much love and heart in it – it’s a privilege to get to do what I love and work with people I strongly believe in.
DC: When did you realize music was your calling?
MC: I always knew I loved music, but think it’s when college time rolled around that it really hit me – music is the only thing I want to dedicate my life to. I work around the clock for it and am happy to do so.
DC: In one word, how would you describe your experience on “The Voice?”
DC: What keeps you creative?
MC: Taking lots of walks! Drinking enough water. Resting. Spending time alone. Spending time with other people…as someone wise once said, “there is no such thing as an ordinary person.” I agree with that.
DC: You have a signature look that people love; what or who inspires your style?
MC: Thanks, very kind of you to say. My style is inspired by what makes me feel most comfortable, most at home, most ready to embrace the day.
DC: What is your staple fashion item?
MC: Hmm. A blazer! And a hoodie! Had to put two in there.
DC: Any advice for aspiring singers out there?
MC: Be yourself. Drink water. And if you’re feeling cooped up and in your own head, take a minute to walk, breathe, dance like an idiot, shout. Smile at someone. We’re not meant to live in our heads.
