First of all...NO Dream is ridiculous!!!! Writers are what make the world colorful!! It's easy to get discouraged from negative people! You can do anything you want as long as you work for it and have a passion for it! Keep Dreaming!! I can't wait to buy your book...
When performing are you observant of the crowd, or in the zone and focused solely on singing? It’s always interesting seeing how people are on stage.
Definitely both...I like to watch the crowd to see their reactions to the puppets but when I sing by myself I usually get so into the song...

I love making people happy and its so unique and fun

I haven't ever performed in front of that many people or celebrities

Has your successful career impacted school or anyway? How do fellow students and faculty handle it? Did you have to get a tutor or even be home-schooled because of your schedule?
I went to regular school up until this year....I am just gone too much so I had to move to online school but it's thru my public school. So I can go to all of the extra curricular activites. Its the best of both worlds for me. The students and teacher handle it perfectly. they just treat me as normal darci.

Me and my family were very excited to go to your El Paso show because that's where we live, and my mom is asking what would be the closest show you'd be doing when this whole thing settles down?

Awe...thank you so much!! I guess I would say it was getting recognized in public. That was so weird for me at first and to adjust to it. But now its fun and I love interacting with my fans...
