NAME: Danielle Marie Gaudin
1. THE FIRST ALBUM I EVER BOUGHT WAS … I had to truly think this one through! Sadly, it was Paula Abdul’s, “Forever Your Girl.” I wanted to be a fly girl for “In Living Color,” so I bought that tape to practice my dance moves.
2. THE FIRST CONCERT THAT I EVER SAW WAS … B.B. King! My dad and I went together, and every year after, we made plans to see him and Lucille. He’s an incredible performer.
3. THE FIRST MUSICAL INSTRUMENT I EVER OWNED OR PLAYED WAS … Piano. I started lessons when I was five. I cried when my Mom made me practice, but eventually I grew out of that ;)
4. THE FIRST SONG THAT I EVER PERFORMED IN PUBLIC WAS … Some song I had written with my BFF at the time. We used to play guitar and sing at Cafe Dolce on Jay Street.
5. THE FIRST BAND I WAS EVER IN WAS … I’ve never really been in a band! I sort of just sing with everyone and anyone that will let me!
