CLOSE’s “Base Level” column features the hottest new artists we’re buzzing about. Before they make it to the summit of superstardom, we spot them at base level–the beginning of their hopeful journey to the top.

California girl, Jadagrace, is only a teenager but she’s ready to take the world by storm. She was only a child when she got her start in the entertainment business and since then, she’s appeared in movies, television shows, and she’s most recently landed a record deal with West Gate. Her musical influences range from Michael Jackson to Ariana Grande and her sound is a unique mix of rock and R&B.

Get the scoop on Jadagrace below!

Age: I’m 15 years old, born in 1999.

Hometown: I’m a Cali girl! I’ve been in Los Angeles my whole life and love it. I do like visiting other place, but L.A. is home.

Musical Influences: I really love Michael Jackson. I also like Beyoncé and Ariana Grande. Michael and Beyoncé command the stage and someday I want to be able to perform like they do. I know Ariana is new, but she has a very unique sound and an amazing voice that I practice to every day.

How Do You Describe Your Sound? I would describe my sound as a mixture of pop rock and definitely R&B.

Biggest Break Thus Far? Probably starring in the the movie “Terminator Salvation.” I was 8-years-old and for that to be my first job it was amazing and and a great experience. That will stay with me for the rest of my life.

Dream Collaborations? Drake or Ariana Grande. I absolutely love Drake’s sound and I would love to work with him. I also would love to work with Ariana because she is so amazing.

If You Were The Love Child Of Any Artists Dead Or Alive, Who Would They Be? I’d be the child of Michael Jackson and Beyonce because they both have big hearts. Michael loved animals and they both do all they can to help people.  I love animals too. I’ve had so many pets. I even leave food for the wolves that would come in my backyard at night, but I was encouraged to stop.  I love helping people.  I will do the best I can to create peace and spread love throughout the world. Not only do Michael and Beyonce have big hearts, but they are dedicated to their craft just like me and they always go all out on stage and give it all they got! I know that one day I will be just like them.

What Is The Best Piece Of Advice A Celeb Gave You? I’ve gotten a lot of advice from Berry Gordy. He has basically taught me to live my life by the poem “If” by Rudyard Kipling. He has told me to never stop until I make it, and not to let anything get to my head. I have really learned a lot from him. I’m so blessed to have him in my life, he is brilliant.
