May 16, 2013

From walking the hallways of her middle school to showing off her talent center stage, Niece Elliott is a fourteen year old music sensation with a sparkling character and breathtaking voice.

While chatting with Niece at Audiostate 55 recording studio, I realized we have two things in common–a love for what we do and amazing family support. “For me having the gift to sing and my family’s support, I knew I could do it,” says Elliot. The more our conversation progressed, the more I realized we have more things in common–shopping, balancing school and work, and an understanding of true girl power.
