Before benefiting from her talent, CJ improved her musical talents through music and acting lessons. She draws her inspiration from artists like Lady Gaga and Katy Perry. CJ especially admires them for their sincere attitudes and drive to be themselves. Before the launch of the company's website, Ark Music hosted a meet and greet with the artists, both those who have launched and those who are still in production. She calls the group "one big family." But this 11-year-old with the bouncing blond curls doesn't just have a powerful voice.
CJ has performed in professional plays, both in the United States and internationally, including "Annie" and "The Sound of Music." She also wrote her single, "Ordinary Pop Star," which is nearing almost 1 million hits on YouTube. She also wrote it when she was ten years old. Regarding the song, CJ also wanted to clear up some misconceptions about the message behind the song. She was not trying to imply that she is a pop star and has to deal with everything that life entails. "The song is not that I'm already famous, it's about that girl who has the choice between living the life of a star or being a normal girl," CJ said. "She just wants a little bit of both, but she has to decide." Although CJ has not had to experience these choices yet, she is well on her way.
Her road to fame currently involves trips back and forth between Los Angeles and Florida to meet with record labels and to hype her new single, which should be hitting iTunes soon.
