If you need someone to root for and to be impressed with their hard work and determination, Sofia Reyes is your girl.
She's been trying to make it in the music world since she was 8 years old. Her dad wrote songs with her, created a pop girl band for her, and then sent her on her way to Los Angeles... alone... away from the family still in Mexico.
Sofia told me about the hardest part about the move; she wasn't just alone, but it was a cold-hearted city that didn't like making friends in an elevator. After a few years in LA, she's made some friends, signed a record deal, and has a single with one of her favorite artists- Jason Derulo.
I asked her if it was scary to be the first artist signed to her label and how her song with Jason came about. She was very honest about it all, which will break your heart for her but then turn around and be excited for what's happening now.
