Her parents attended the Deeper Life Bible church – a church known for its conservative stance and strictness; she also attended Deeper Life and was nurtured in the doctrine of the church.
According to her,
My parents struggled to allow me to do what I do now. When I realized they weren’t happy to watch me dance, I did it behind their backs. They eventually realized that there was nothing they could do to hinder my love of entertainment. My mother died several years ago, and I miss her in every way. My father is now my greatest supporter, although that wasn’t always the case. After a brief discussion, he agreed to let me fulfill my dream.
