Blu Cantrell's Backstage Beginnings

Tiffany "Blu" Cantrell was born in Providence, Rhode Island. Blu Cantrell was really into music at a young age - especially jazz. Blu Cantrell's mom was a jazz singer and Blu had plenty of opportunity to see her in action because her mom couldn't afford a babysitter. Whenever she had a performance she would take Blu Cantrell and her siblings to the show. As a young adult, Blu Cantrell found comfort in music - it helped heal her broken heart from love gone wrong. Some of Blu Cantrell's biggest musical influences include Billie Holiday, Sade, Sting, Prince, Aretha Franklin and Whitney Houston.

    It's not awfully amazing like Up, but it's still amazing, and much different from anything Pixar has done until now. So yes, I suggest you watch it. :D

    I know how it feels when the something bad happens to the person you were rooting for in a serial...but it's important to take the plot forward. Who knows, your favourite couple might come back together.
