“I’m working hard to fulfill my dreams and to always do what I love, which is to write and release my music,” said Paris. “I hope that my music will bring joy and entertainment for all of my fans.”
Paris said she is realistic about her chances to hit it big as a singer.
“I know my journey will have ups and downs, but it will be worth it,” said Paris. “I might not always know what will come next, but I dream of sharing my gifts with the world.”
Currently, Paris is writing new music working with Los Angeles-based Eric Johnson at NIMusicGroup.
