“The years I lived in Detroit had a big influence on bringing out my artistic side. I got exposed to R&B, jazz and techno, which was brand new to me. Detroit is a gold mine of talent ---think, Dwele, Kem, Underground Resistance, etc. I got to see some of those artists perform before they blew up.” ---Cherrie Amour
