    I love to sing, and act. I love to do lots of things. I’m a 13 year old girl, that loves little kids and is always singing nonstop, ask anybody. But anyway, I hope you can email me and let me at least have a chance because no one ever gives me a chance so I’ll be grateful even if I can get this little chance to sing in a musical. Again I sing non-stop, even make my own songs.
