My name is Layla, and I’m a singer / songwriter living and preforming in Orlando, Florida. I’m twenty-three and the oldest of seven. I love life fully and deeply and I live for the little things that make me smile - summer thunderstorms, a ladybug on my window, sunflowers along the side of the road. My day isn’t complete without coffee or tea and I’m constantly collecting inspirational quotes to surround myself with. I’m a family girl at heart and the people I love make my life what it is. I absolutely love the Lord, and I would be nothing without him.
Since I was a little girl, all I wanted to do was perform and sing for people. I used to stand on the ledge in front of my grandparents’ fireplace and put on shows for my family. That feeling I got from preforming in front of people has never left me. Music makes me feel things that I can’t begin to describe, things that I never thought I would ever feel. My dream is to share my music with thousands of people and my goal has always been to be a positive role model, to inspire, move, and touch people with my songs. I’m happy to say that, with a lot of determination and hard work, I am happily in pursuit of that dream.
I’ll leave you with this - I am not perfect and I am okay with that. I make mistakes and I learn from them. I enjoy every second of my life, try not to sweat the small stuff, and most importantly I try not to let people get me down. My life is an adventure, an unwritten epic, something to be taken a day at a time. I will enjoy every laugh, remain strong through hardships, and make the most of every moment I am blessed with. I believe in facing my fears and speaking my mind. My story? Well, I guess you could say it’s just the beginning.
