It’s safe to say that I’m living vicariously through Lennon and Maisy Stella. These two seriously talented singers were discovered on YouTube and are now starring on the hit show, “Nashville.” I had the chance to chat with the girls when they were in town to help celebrate Special Olympics Minnesota’s Celebration of Champions.
Aside from my Q&A with the girls, I learned that Lennon’s go-to store on any shopping trip is Free People (Level 1, South); the girls do not agree on who their on-screen mom (played by Connie Britton) should end up with; and yes, their voices really are that incredible live. Here is what the girls had to say about working together, and what’s coming next.
Q: What is it like working with your sister every day?
Maisy: Fun! It is a lot more comfortable than working with someone you recently met.
Lennon: It’s comforting having my sister by my side and getting experience these things together is awesome.
Q: As singers and actresses, do you have any advice for young performers who are trying to follow their passion and form a career?
Maisy: Start putting up videos on YouTube if you want people to be able to watch you sing.
Lennon: Always stay true to yourself. Do it for the love of it and because it makes you happy.
Q: What’s next for you two? Movies? A new album? What can your fans look forward to seeing from you guys?
Maisy: Some movies and yes, an album. Hopefully soon!
Lennon: We hope to continue on the show, of course. In the meantime, we are working on writing and hopefully making an album!
