Rebecca was born in Florida, where she lived for the first 10 years of her life. In March, 2002 her family took a job assignment in the Middle East. Rebecca is now seeing parts of the world that most people never experience and it\'s been an exciting and wonderful experience.
Rebecca\'s musical interest began at the tender age of 18 months, singing tunes and lyrics before she could even form sentences. At the age of five, she performed in a talent show in front of over 500 people. Each year she sang for the show and each year she loved the audience and the excitement of performing. She began vocal lessons at age nine with a local music instructor who\'s students have gone on to Broadway and Hollywood. After moving overseas, she took voice lessons for a year. Then in the summer of 2003, she auditioned for NTS Productions and began new vocal training. Within six months, she began recording original songs and has since had the good fortune to have the great support of people who believe in her. She loves to sing 24/7 and gets involved with theatre productions whenever she is able. Rebecca spends time checking out current vocalists and performers and keeping up with the music industry on-line.
Rebecca is now 17 years old. She attends an American International School, where she has made friends from all over the world. Her experience overseas and at the international school has taught her that it is possible for many cultures, nationalities, races and religions to work together, learn, and appreciate life as one \"family\".
Her warm personality and charm and her love for helping others comes through in everything she does in life. She was born with a love for music and a passion for singing and is now living her dream of a singing career.
