Interview With Trending Teen Singer-Songwriter Capri Everitt
HI CAPRI! THANKS FOR TAKING THE TIME TO CHAT WITH US! BRIEFLY INTRODUCE YOURSELF.
My name is Capri Everitt and I am a 15-year-old singer and songwriter from Vancouver, Canada.
DESCRIBE A TYPICAL DAY?
These days since the start of the pandemic, my life has been very different, as I’m sure everyone else’s has as well! This quiet time has allowed me to spend a ton of time on my music and my social media. I feel like I have been able to really connect with my fans over Instagram during this time as I have been doing tons of lifestreams.
WHAT DO YOU FEEL ARE YOUR BIGGEST ACHIEVEMENTS?
I definitely feel like my Guinness World Record is one of my biggest achievements. Getting invited to perform at Amateur Night at the famous Apollo Theatre in New York this past February was also a huge deal for me.
WHAT ARE YOUR AMBITIONS IN LIFE?
I have always wanted to become a singer as I love music with my entire heart. One of my biggest goals is to have a song that makes the Billboard top 100.
YOU CAN SING NATIONAL ANTHEMS OF 80 COUNTRIES, WHAT WAS YOUR REACTION WHEN YOU SANG SOME OTHER COUNTRY ANTHEM FOR THE FIRST TIME?
I felt very proud to sing these national anthems as people tend to be very passionate about them. It was also a little bit scary, however, as a national anthem is not something you want to mess up.
YOU HAVE TRAVELLED 80 COUNTRIES, WHAT DIFFERENCES IF ANY, DO YOU FIND BETWEEN EUROPE, ASIA AND IN THE US?
There are definitely changes in the cultures of each place. However, I found it was nice to experience these different places. There are fascinating differences for example, in Europe, many people can speak over 5 languages whereas, in North America, many people speak only one.
WHAT’S YOUR GREATEST STRENGTH?
I would say my greatest strength is my determination. I am always motivated to do my best so that I can achieve all of my goals.
WHAT DO YOU WISH YOU’D KNOWN AT THE START OF YOUR CAREER YOU NOW KNOW?
I wish I had known that social media is the most important thing for growing as an artist.
WHICH ARTISTS ARE YOU LISTENING TO AT THE MOMENT. CAN YOU PICK A FAVOURITE?
I love listening to 90’s pop as well as the top 100 right now. Some of my favourite artists are Shawn Mendes, Camilla Cabello and Ariana Grande.
IF YOU HAD TO ADVISE SOMEONE WHO’S JUST STARTED THEIR MUSIC CAREER WHAT WOULD YOU TELL THEM?
I would probably tell them that being in the entertainment industry is much harder than people think and you have to be extremely creative to get people’s attention.
