Hometown: Chicago, Ill.
Song that makes you cry: "Living Proof" by Mary J. Blige. It's one of the most heartfelt songs ever. It's from the movie The Help, so just with that, it has a really great message.
Favorite childhood toy: Man, I remember I had this microphone. It's so funny, I had this microphone that came with a cassette where you could record yourself. And that's how you know it was old because it was a cassette. I used to walk around singing into that like "La, la, la, la, la" and now I'm here.
Forehead scar origins: It's a good-bad story. I got it when I was 4. I cut myself with a knife. I got 11 stitches on there. I was a very adventurous kid. Just leave it at that.
