In 2002, she was signed to Timbaland's short-lived Beat Club Records, releasing two singles before her Timbaland-produced debut, Simple Girl, was shelved. In 2005, she set work on her second album under the name 'Blue Eyes' and released a single "Lookin' For Love" to radio. Her second studio album Changes was set to be released in 2006, preceded by the single "Who I Am," which was sent out to radio.

The following year, she signed with Mathew Knowles' Music World Entertainment label in 2007.[1] She was set to release her album "Changes" on the label, but left soon after six months.[2]

In 2008, she joined pop singer Madonna on her Sticky & Sweet Tour as a backup vocalist, replacing Madonna's long-time backing singer Donna DeLory, who was pregnant at the time and unable to tour.

In 2010, she released her album "Changes" digitally on the ReverbNation store for a limited time.[3][4] Later that year, she recorded a couple of remixes which was made available on YouTube and her Soundcloud accounts.[5]

She joined the New Kids On The Block and Matthew Morrison tours in 2011, singing backup for them.

As of 2012, she's currently singing backup for Madonna. She performed on her MDNA Tour and Rebel Heart Tour runs.[6]

In 2015, she launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund her Scream EP which successfully met its goal in February.[7] In July, she premiered the EP's first single and music video "Lockdown" to her backers, with the digital release (and YouTube/VEVO) in August.[8] On September 21, the EP was made available to her backers, with a digital release set in the next following weeks.[9]
