Chocolate-Covered MACOMB, MS-native AMERICAN IDOL: SEASON 15 Second Runner-Uo La'PORSHA RENAE covers the 2017 STEP INTO SUMMER Issue of DAILY VENUS DIVA Magazine!!!
Here are some interview interludes:
DailyVenusDiva.com: Between making it to the finals on the final season of American Idol, releasing a new album and performing live on stage with several musical heavy weights; you’ve had an extraordinary last few years. Have you had a chance to sit back and say, “I did that” and take it all in?
La’Porsha Renae: Not really. I’ve been on the move and hungry to capitalize off of all the exposure I got from Idol. Sometimes it hits me when I’m watching the audience sing one of my songs.
DailyVenusDiva.com: That’s amazing!! So when the audience sings your music they’re singing in different languages. To be able to touch lives internationally is such a blessing. What’s the best piece of advice that you’ve received so far and who was it from?
La’Porsha Renae: Best advice came from my mother. She reminds me to always remember who and who’s I am. She also tells me to remember my “why” for doing all of this and that’s my daughter. Those reminders keep me grounded and allow me to face adversity and obstacles with confidence and reassurance.
DailyVenusDiva.com: Let’s talk about this album. Already, All Ready. Tell me about the title?
La’Porsha Renae: The title represents defying all stereotypes and stipulations being put on following your dreams. It’s basically saying I am who and what I am. Take it or leave it. I have to change nothing about my appearance to be ready for what I’m doing. I’m ready just as I am. I want people to know that just because society has a popular idea of what someone should look or sound or act like doesn’t make it dictate what and who you can be. Do you. Everyone else will eventually jump on board or get over it. But always be true to you, no matter what others think.
DailyVenusDiva.com: You’ve said that God saved you through music. How did He save you and how important is your faith?
La’Porsha Renae: God saved me through music because when I get down, music is my therapy. God is my everything. I consult with Him before I do or say anything. When I mess up, He’s the first one I ask to forgive me because He’s been my everything when nobody else could reach me He was there. It’s important for me to keep Him first.
DailyVenusDiva.com: What are three of your career goals and how do you plan on achieving them?
La’Porsha Renae: Three career goals of mine are to inspire people, get my daughter and I financially comfortable, and retreat to a private island.
