Hillary will be performing singles from her upcoming debut EP throughout the United States in 2020 as a standalone feature artist and as an artist in SOS Foundation’s: SOS Tour, (www.sosfoundation.life).
Here’s 5 fast facts about Hillary!
Feelings are a big part of what she does.
In my opinion the best part of this “business”is the feeling I get when I know someone has enjoyed my work or when they are left with a perspective they didn’t have before. I think that’s really what music is all about, knowing how someone else feels or has felt and gaining knowledge from that. At the end of the day we all have different views and beliefs so we should embrace that.
She wants you to know something about the Deep South.
There are plenty of misconceptions about people from the Deep South, but I think the one that really drives me crazy is people saying that we are not intelligent. You may think we are “slow talking hicks” but we have important things to say. We also have an instilled drive and work-ethic that will ultimately get us where we need to be.
Forget song lyrics? Not a problem, she will just make them up!
The first time I sang in public I completely forgot the words and had to make up random words to go along with the song. That experience completely scarred me, but still to this day I do the same thing when I forget words. Oh well!
She’s got brains.
I think people would be really surprised to know that I am a nerd at heart. I get really into books and I love math.
Steak tartare is a no-no.
I refuse to eat any raw meat! I can’t stand the taste of anything that has not been cooked, it’s simply disgusting!
