Who inspires you and why?
Lydia – I’m inspired by my parents. They are pastors and do a lot of great work in the community. I always knew I wanted to do something great like them and wanted to touch lives through my performance craft.
Evette – I’m inspired by my friends. A lot of us didn’t come from wealth or great resources. We went to college together and then New York. Everyday each one of us takes a step closer to our dream. The tenacity is wonderful.
What would you do to make a difference in the world?
Lydia – My dream is to have own studio in Harlem, for kids to work on and develop their own art, theatre, film and music. I want to effect change in my community back home.
Evette – I’d make a big ol’ love pill! Free and accessible (with no negative side effects) to give to the world.
What are your favourite holiday destinations and why?
Lydia – I love the magic of Disneyworld in Florida. So much so I’ve been 6 times!!
Evette – Jamaica!! I’ve never been, but looks so good on postcards. I plan to go after this tour.
What are each of you currently listening to?
Lydia – Fly before You Fall by Cynthia Erivo
Evette – Pandora: Mary Mary & Beyoncé
Happiness to you is?
Lydia – When I see things in life that I desire and hoped for coming to fruition. And spending time with all the people that matter most.
Evette – Feeling and seeing the love of God manifested through my life and people around me.
What does your future hold?
Lydia – “She’s waiting for her man to put ring on it” … hint hint!
Evette – I’m soon making a music video. Oh and Jamaica!
