It looks like Brandy won’t be the only star of the family! While talking to Parade magazine, Brandy admits that her 9-year-old daughter, Sy’rai, has the entertainment gene.
On Sy’rai following in her footsteps: “She loves to sing and dance. I’m trying to keep her life as normal as possible, but I’m definitely encouraging her to do what she loves to do. She’s a little bit shy to sing in front of me now, but I’ve caught her singing and she sounds great. I know she has the entertainment bug. I’m just trying to have her hold out for a little bit until she gets older.”
On the role music played during her childhood: “Music has always been my life. I was born to sing. I was born to express myself in music. My dad was very involved in music, he’s a musician, so we were always listning to music and singing. I don’t know what my life would be without music. It’s like my first language.”
On the ups and downs of celebrity: “Fame can change you. It can either can either make you or break you. I’ve gone through my ups and downs and different challenges, but there’s a foundation that I’ve had from my family and from trying to keep honest people around me that’s kept me on the right track. I’m not saying I’m perfect. I’ve made mistakes and gotten off track in certain ways, but I was able to keep a good head on my shoulders and I want to continue to do that. I’m older and wiser now. It’s not just about people noticing you, its about really changing people’s lives. That’s what I want to use my fame for.”
