Kayla Calabrese is of light and love with a heart of gold. She works hard and is hard on herself. As I listened to Kayla share her story with me I could hear such drive and passion from her in everything that she is involved with and I could feel her dedication. She told me that when she was in school she would cry if she did not get an “A”. Kayla wants to do her very best at everything she does and she does. I asked her where she got her work ethic and she said it came from both of her parents. Her father was a trucker and gone a lot but although she missed her Dad she saw the hard work and dedication her father had for his family and picked up those qualities growing up. She also saw how in life you get knocked down every once in a while and learned that getting back up and moving on is the only way to go.

While her father was on the road to provide for his family her mother was living much of her life as a single mom instilling values and important lessons to the family. “She was the one who was always there if I was down on myself for not being perfect. My mom brought me back to earth and showed me there is so much more to me than whatever I thought was so bad.”

Kayla’s parents worked hard together raising their family and building a strong foundation for Kayla and her siblings to grow from. Great job Mom and Dad!

My dad and I acting goofy as always!! Lol

Kayla loves her family very much and the values that were given to her.

Kayla is doing everything right and her hard work is paying off. Not only is she a rising star but her devotion to helping others is such a big part of her life. Kayla is a nurse and cares for others with tenderness and compassion.

I asked Kayla about her dreams and plans and she said she really wants to be a role model to young girls. Kayla says with all the bullying and negativity that has happened with social media she wants to be a light of inspiration to the young people of the world and help them to know that life has so much to offer and help inspire them to be strong and beautiful inside. 

Kayla says she would someday like to open a gym for girls to learn gymnastics and be a mentor to those who come to a safe place where we all uplift one another.

“One of the best things that I get to do as an artist is inspire the younger generations. I love having little girls and boys at my shows and love knowing that I can have a small influence on their lives. I think kids today have it a lot harder than previous generations due to the impact of social media and bullying. I am all about building these kids up and telling them that they are enough just as they are. They don’t have to wear the brands that everyone is wearing or have the newest toy/game to be loved or accepted.” 

“I take that responsibly seriously and love being a light to any child I can. I met an amazing girl named Alyssa through her father at my Nursing job. He told me she played guitar. I got to meet Alyssa and she is one of the sweetest people I know. I could tell she looked up to me from a musical standpoint and quite honestly is a stellar guitar player.

I invited her to come into the studio when we were tracking a couple songs and she actually got to play on the record. I could tell she was on cloud 9 and had an amazing time. I recently played at CMA Fest in Nashville and thought, what better way to have her feel special again than to have her play on stage with me. So she did and she rocked it as always. She’s an amazing young woman and I am honored to be able to inspire her and show her that you can be exactly who you are and be successful and happy. I love you Alyssa!”
