After making a move to LA with just a little bit in her savings, Thuy hit the ground running. With the blessing of her parents, she strived through to make music her all. The pop star’s first song, Hands On Me received plays on 106.1 KMEL. This was the start of something major.
“111 is not a bop. It’s a moodier song that talks about the anxieties of the world. From the struggles of not feeling yourself or not good enough. The good part is that music will always be adapotable and inspirational even if you’re not going through the same situation.”
