Alexisjoyvipaccess: Can you tell us what are some pre-show rituals that you’re going to do before your performance tonight?

Alexisjoyvipaccess: Definitely! So, can you tell us who some of your musical inspirations are?
Raquel Castro: Christina Aguilera, who I was on her team for “The Voice” is one of my big inspirations. Beyonce is also a very big inspiration to me!
Alexisjoyvipaccess: Interesting! Full of girl-power charisma! Raquel Castro: Yes! Love the girl-power!
Alexisjoyvipaccess: Yes! So can you tell us some upcoming projects you’re working on that your fans can look forward to?
Raquel Castro: I’ve been writing a lot of music, I’ve been working on an album; so we haven’t found any record labels yet, so we’re kind of just hanging low; and behind the scenes and just getting the album ready, getting my sound together, so that’s really what I’m working on right now!
Alexisjoyvipaccess: So all your fans can look forward to that, we can’t wait to hear your album, of course! Raquel Castro: Thank you!
Alexisjoyvipaccess: Speaking of your fans, if you could bring out one message to all of them watching right now, what message would that be?
Raquel Castro: Just really stay positive and if you have a dream, whether it’s anything, a big dream, a small dream; always go for your dreams and never let anyone hold you back and never let anyone tell you that you can’t do something, you have to believe in yourself, if you want other people to believe in you!
Alexisjoyvipaccess: Definitely! I totally agree! Thank you so much for talking with me and I wish you continue success with your career. Good luck tonight!
Raquel Castro: Thank you! Thank you! Thank you so much!
