• What do you feel is your greatest accomplishment so far?
Lilly:
The guy who wrote the “You Are So Beautiful” song came to our school, I don’t know if that’s an accomplishment, and meeting him was really cool. He’s what I think of when people tell me I’m not good enough. He told me that not to listen to anybody and to keep on playing music and you’ll succeed.

If you could star in a movie with anyone, who would it be?
Lilly:
Jack Black! I’m in love with him, he’s awesome. Or, Adam Sandler.

• What has been your most memorable performance?
Lilly:
Last year at Fan Fest, it was my first real performance not at a talent show, I went up during open mic and sang a song. It was weird, coming off the stage everyone was like, “You are so good, you should have been one of the acts!” That was really cool, it made me want to pursue it more.

• What’s in your CD player right now?
Lilly:
I tried to resist listening to them, but M2M right now.

• Do you like pineapple?
Lilly:
I love pineapple. Crushed pineapple tho, not canned!

• Where do you see yourself in two years?
Lilly:
Signed and getting my start.

• What’s one thing that nobody knows about you?
Lilly:
I’m scared to go to a store by myself, it’s really weird.

• What’s your favorite song that you wrote?
Lilly:
“Black Star”, it was the worst recorded one, but it means the most to me.

• Do you have anything you want to say to your fans?
Lilly:
Keep on keeping track of me, and come to my site.

• What inspires your music?
Lilly:
Pretty much anything dramatic or anything out of the ordinary that happens. Whenever I go out of town, I normally write songs because I think about things.

• What has been the most influential piece of advice you’ve even been given?
Lilly:
I wish I knew the guys name, but it was the “You Are So Beautiful” guy. Oh, and I think the biggest accomplishment for me so far, was having Britney Spears’ manager listen to my CD.
