To the untrained eye, Elise Estrada may seem like a newcomer to the music world, but look a little closer and you'll see a girl who's been giving all she's got since she was a toddler. Check out our interview with this up-and-coming star who just won the Canadian Radio Music Award for Solo Artist of the Year!

Sindy: Hey Elise! Most people know you from your break-out single Insatiable. What more should people know about Elise Estrada?
Elise Estrada: I have so much more to give! I have so many dreams and I'm sure this is just the beginning for me. I'm also a daughter, a sister, a girly girl, and kind of a nerd! There are a lot of sides to me.

Sindy: Your new album is out in May 2008. Can you tell me about that?
Elise Estrada: I'm working so hard to make sure that every song is a hit. I really want people to dance their way through the whole album - from start to finish.

Sindy: You've tried your hand at pageants, acting, singing and dancing. What drives your desire to perform?
Elise Estrada: Don't forget modeling! Ha! Yeah, I've always had an interest in performing. You could probably say my mother was a bit of a stage mom, but as long as I can remember it was something I loved too. The love you feel from the crowds is just so great. I can't think of anything I'd rather do.

Sindy: Who were your musical influences growing up?
Elise Estrada: My mom, mostly (laughs), but also a lot of Motown because that's what was playing in the house.

Sindy: How about these days? Who are you listening to?
Elise Estrada: You know what? I loved the new [KWLINK ]Britney Spears[/KWLINK] album. I know it's not exactly fashionable to say that, but I thought it was awesome. I especially loved Piece of Me.

Sindy:Do you think of yourself as a role model for young girls? What do you do to be a positive one?
Elise Estrada: It's definitely something I've thought of because I have a younger sister and I want to be a good role model for her. I guess I just try to keep in mind that young eyes are watching me, and try to keep my behavior in check because of that.

Sindy:Who is your role model in terms of your career?
Elise Estrada: Beyonce! She's really made all of the right moves in her career. I love her!

Sindy:You grew up in a pretty traditional household and went to Catholic school. How does your family react to some of your racy music videos?
Elise Estrada: They do gasp every once in a while! But they know who I am, and what I'm about so the occasional short skirt doesn't bother them. They know I'm a good girl.

Sindy:Great. Thanks so much, Elise. Is there anything else you want to say to your fans before you go?
Elise Estrada: I just want to say thank you so much. Please keep in touch with me through my MySpace. I read as many of your messages as I can!
