Sitting down with Adina Howard was much more then I imagined. Just by talking with her I could feel how warm hearted, true, and genuine of a person she is. She’s a true gem, and a beautiful person inside and out. I sat down with Adina after her performance in Roanoke, VA where she had the crowd screaming for more. She gave a performance that had everyone on their feet.
First off Adina Prestige would like to thank you for allowing us to interview you after your great performance tonight.
Right now my main focus is getting my education. I’m currently enrolled in culinary school, working on my culinary degree but I will be working on getting an album to my babies (fans) because that’s important.
Look let me tell you, when I got a B, because my goal was to get all A’s, my goal was to be suma cum lade. When I got my first B, my heart hurt so bad so much so I was ready to cry, but magna cum lade is good, so right now I’m rocking A’s & B’s, and the experience is amazing, it’s absolutely amazing. I’m loving it.
I don’t have a favorite dish but I love international cuisine
Absolutely, I know one artist that is totally under rated that I would love to work with he’s a rapper that goes by the name Tech N9ne, I would also love to work with Tank, there are so many more out there that I would love to work with also, whether it be doing a duet together or working doing some productions or songwriting, the thing is if they would like to work with me, I would love to work with them, but it’s kind of difficult because a lot of times we artist have our egos, and most of us want to work with who’s hot at the time verses saying let’s just go ahead because you’re a great artist and I’m a great artist too. The industry is about selling records, and they want to jump on the band wagon of who’s hot right now, and being that I’m kind of on the back burner and out of site out of mind, but in due season, and if not I’m alright cause I can hold it down on my own.
So many. Prince and Madonna, those are my main two because of their brash forward and mentality of expressing themselves however they choose.
My favorite I don’t believe is on the album or one of the ones that people focus on. One of my favorites, actually I have four that I enjoy. One of the songs I wrote is called What Do I Do, it has that neo soul type of vibe to it. The other one that I wrote is called Missing You, it has a 50s jazz harmony type vibe. And then there a song on the Private Show album called I Forgive You. And the other song I love is called Too Close
No I enjoy performing Freak Like Me for my fans because they love it, and I love to see them happy and getting up out their seats and dancing. That for me moves me when I sing it.
