OM: At what age did you discover the impact your voice has on people?
SB: The first time I sang by myself. I was 12 years old and singing "My Boo" by Usher for my classmates. People got a bit quiet, maybe surprised. That’s when I understood people felt affected by my singing.
OM: What do you do before a performance? Do you have any kind of preparation rituals?
SS: Actually not... Well, I do really like to smell nice. I like to be fresh and clean before a show. I normally wear Balmain or Thierry Mugler perfume.
OM: What designer would you rather wear on stage?
SS: Maybe Givenchy. I also really like the designer Craig Green.
OM: Your 25th birthday is coming up. How will you spend it?
SS: Crying at home, haha.. no, just kidding! I’m not sure what to do, though. I might try to celebrate the release of my new record at the same time. That would be a nice party.
OM: What do you normally do on Sundays?
SS: I make my friends go to a bar with me, even though that’s normally not a place to spend Sundays, but I always miss the Saturdays so I guess I’m trying to catch up.
OM: Who’s your best friend in the world?
SS: Oh... That’s a really hard question. But I’d have to say my baby sister, Seidato. She’s 15.
