Today, we have singer/songwriter, actress, AND model, Kristinia DeBarge! The star opened up to us about her start in music as a part of the famous DeBarge clan, her own aspirations for her career, and her new upcoming show on weTV, Growing Up Hip Hop!
Growing up as a part of the famous DeBarge family R&B lineage, Kristinia noted that there is “never a dull moment” with her family. “My family, they’re not only talented, but they’re very funny, awesome great human beings,” she said. Having that strong background in music, Kristinia knew that she wanted to sing at the young age of 3, and began taking her craft seriously at 12. “I kind of hid it from my dad [James DeBarge],” she laughed, not telling him that she had that talent and passion for singing until that time. “He was like, ‘Oh my gosh! All right, let’s get you in the studio!'” They stayed up until 4:30 in the morning writing and recording the song, and Kristinia was committed to the process even at that age. “He was kind of testing me to see how bad I really wanted to do it,” she stated. Clearly she proved herself!

Today we have on the blog, model/actor Frankito Arias! Frankito is relatively new to the industry, and was introduced to acting and modeling back in 2011 by his current manager, Tahyira Savanna. “The truth is, it was just something fun to do and she thought I had real skill.” The duo were both new to their jobs—Frankito to acting and modeling and Tahyira to managing—but they gave it a shot anyway. “The response was so good, we started to take it more seriously and now that I have had a taste of what it is I found my true path,” the actor admitted.
