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!

    I've had tons and still do. I think it's easy to crush on fictional characters. Even ones form movies and tv shows, though they are real people that's not their real personality.  Hinata, Sugawara, Tsukishima, Kageyama, and Asahi from Haikyuu Onoda, Makishima, Kinjou, Shinkai and Izumida form Yowapeda That's just from two shows...
