“I was introduced to Liza through the Michael Jackson [tribute concert]. My mother introduced me to her work when I was about 7 or 8, so she’s been a household name. She’s someone who I definitely look up to as an entertainer, all around. I don’t know what she considers me as, but she treats me so kind. She’s one of the nicest people I’ve ever met in this business–free-spirited and a big kid at heart. I went to her wedding; I performed at the [reception]. She’s still kickin’ ass.”
