Shelia Goss: Did you always know you wanted to be a singer?

Shelia: How did you end up on Roc-A-Fella Records?
Teairra: It was shopped around. Took it to LA Reid and he liked it and signed me. I was twelve when I started out and sixteen when I signed. I’m seventeen now.

Shelia: If you weren’t singing, what would you be doing and why?
Teairra: LAW. It’s just something that I’ve always found interesting.

Shelia: How much input did you have on your CD?

Shelia: What makes your album stand out from some of the rest?
Teairra: I talk about real everyday issues that people go through; however I’ll let other people be the judge.

Shelia: Who are some of your favorite singers?
Teairra: Prince, SWV, Jodeci, Michael Jackson, Destiny’s Child and so many more.

Shelia: How has your life changed since your success?

Teairra: Maybe later on this year.

Shelia: Will you be performing at any of the upcoming award shows?
Teairra: I will perform at the World Music Awards.
