Sound Off: Sky Katz
May 22, 2020
OMG, are we crushin’ on this girl! Sky Katz is our Sound Off star today and we’re ecstatic!
With a new song called “Crushin” – that captured our attention (and our hearts) from beginning to end. Sky took time to talk to us and we asked everything about her new song, her aspiration for life and her participation in America’s Got Talent. YES, YOU READ THAT RIGHT!
1) Tell us about the story behind “Crushin”.
It’s my first song about having a crush on someone and it’s partially about something that was going on in my life at the time we wrote it.
2) What is the inspiration for your music?
My inspiration is always a combination of the music I’m listening to at the time and what’s going on in my actual life. Sometimes it’s more of one than the other, but overall that’s what’s behind it.
3) How did you start your career at such a young age?
I’ve always loved performing in front of an audience. When I was around 5 years old I would take the mic at parties and it just felt right to me. I secretly sent in a video of me rapping to America’s Got Talent when I was 10. My parents had no idea until my dad received a phone call from a producer to talk about having me be on the show. Being a contestant on that show was what gave me my start.
4) Favorite thing about Raven’s Home?
The best part about Raven’s Home is the amazing people I get to be with every day on set. It’s always fun and educational – everything about it is awesome.
5) How was being part of America’s Got Talent? What were the feeling and overall experiences?
It was like living in a dream. I’d been watching the show for years with my family and as I stood on the X on the stage I felt like this can’t really be happening!
6) Who is your fashion icon?
I admire so many people’s fashion. I am currently loving a girl on Instagram named Dilan.
7) Define your style in one word.
In one word my style is ‘me.’ It’s a combo of the trends and classic styles that I’m into at any given time.
8) Who is your music idol?
Nicki Minaj is my #1 idol. I’ve worshiped her since I was 3 years old.
9) If you could work with any artist, who would it be?
If I could work with anyone it would be with Nicki. We’d make an amazing song together!
10) East Coast or West Coast?
I have to stay true to my East Coast roots. Biggie, Jay-Z, Nas – love them all.
11) What is your favorite food?
My favorite food is shaved ice. I have a crazy sweet tooth and love everything that’s super sugary.
12) Karaoke anthem?
“Super Bass” by Nicki Minaj is my go-to for karaoke.
13) Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
In five years I hope to still be making music and continuing acting on TV and in films.
14) What does popular mean to you?
To me, popular means having people like and respect you while being a likable and respectable person.
15) Do you have any upcoming projects?
I’ve been working on season 4 of Raven’s Home and hoping to drop a new single very soon.
