Glad we got her on show before she fricken blows up around the world because ISABELLE is a superstar inside and out. This week we are joined by Isabelle Pasquelone, born and raised in Atlanta, she's a singer, body positivity activist, and former American Idol contestant. Growing up, she was the "singer chick", who was always, always, always singing, starting voice lessons at 7 years old. For college, she attended the prestigious Berklee College of Music, the only college she applied to BTW (*snaps for Isabelle), where she created a vast network for herself, learned traditional songwriting and the craft as a whole, and never regretted her decision.
Basically, we dive into her music-based WORLD, including her ...
experience with AMERICAN IDOL - how she never wanted to audition, got to the top 20 women finalists, how the whole thing is very unrealistic, and what it did for her career
HOPES and EXPECTATIONS on making it + her career during American Idol
the deep knowing of the outcomes of your experiences + opportunities
time on BROADWAY - and the up's and down's of that life
move to LOS ANGELES, like many of our amazing guests
new song UNLABELED, the music video, + how it stemmed from being told she was "too big" to be a singer or to be in Hollywood
real issues behind being a BODY POSITIVITY ACTIVIST - like Isabelle and Danika Brysha
solutions and optimism for building body positivity, whether you're bigger, smaller, older, younger, and anything in between
ability to FEED HER CREATIVITY
response to people saying she's so "brave" for just being her

SO MANY QUOTABLE GOODIES in this episode #Almost30Nation! We hope you feel as inspired as we do by our conversations with Isabelle.
