British sensation, Rebecca Ferguson is fast becoming the next great voice to catapult from across the pound. You know we keep it fresh over here at SFPL, so it’s only fitting that we grabbed the songstress for an exclusive Q&A.
The British beauty chatted with us about her dreams, her new fame and her future goals, check it out …
How does it feel to look around and see your dreams come into fruition?
Strange – I still find it hard to believe. I am very grateful. It took me a long time but I got there in the end.
It seems as if every writer wants to eventually take a chance at “stardom.” What makes you different from the rest?
I’m not in it for the stardom. I write music and have been given a gift. The fame is not an attraction for me.
When did your love for music start?
Ever since my earliest memory. I don’t remember a time when I never loved music.
Who were some of your musical inspirations growing up as a child? Who are some current artists you gain inspiration from?
As a child I just adored Whitney and Cher. I just wanted to grow up and be them! Currently I really like Sia, Paloma Faith and Lana del Ray.
Who are the Top 3 artists and/or writers you aspire to work with?
I aspire to work with Tracy Chapman, Kings of Leon and Aretha Franklin.
What does the term “Fly” mean to you?
For me, it means cool, confident and knows who they are.
How would you describe your personal style?
My personal style is classic. I take inspiration from the likes of Audrey Hepburn.
What are your Top Fashion Must Haves?
A good bag and a killer heel. :)
Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?
Who knows what the future holds. I just hope I can continue to do what I love.
What does a regular day for Rebecca, now, consist of?
A regular day consists of waking up early, getting picked up, the usual interviews, meetings and performances. It sounds a lot more glam than it actually is.
A lot of people do this solely for the fame and fortune. Why are you here?
I do it because I love music and creating a lifestyle for my children that I never had.
Lastly, is there anything you would like to leave our readers with?
I love you ‘Lil Angels.’
