Interview with a Former Fusion Student

By Debra Porter, M.ED.

It is my pleasure to share with you an interview I did with a former student of mine. Sophia Treadway just released a new song and accompanying music video: “Can’t Stop Thinking About You.” Currently Sophia is hoping Disney will consider airing her song, but she first needs to reach 1 million views on YouTube. Would you give it a watch and share so we can celebrate her?

You can view her music video here.

Or here:

Here’s the conversation we had after she shared the song and music video with me:

Interviewer:

Sophia, congratulations on your new hit song, Can’t Stop Thinking About You!

Sophia:

Thank you very much. I am very excited about it!

Interviewer:

You dropped it on YouTube a couple of days ago, and this morning, 6/7/18 at 6:00 a.m., it had 2000 hits! How does that make you feel?

Sophia:

When the video hit 2000 views, I was thrilled, and on my Instagram, I hit 8.5 thousand views, and was even happier because it had only been two days.

Interviewer:

YOUR VOICE IS AWESOME, and I enjoyed the story arc, characters, and setting. Where did you film the video?

Sophia:

I filmed the video in Los Angeles on an Escape Room set.

Interviewer:

Who were the other actors and how did you meet?

Sophia:

The other actors were Matt McKinley, Sarah Silva, and Layla Magee. I met Matt through a casting agency. Sarah and I had the same manager. Layla is my best friend, so I invited her.

Interviewer:

Did you write the song?

Sophia:

Yes, I came up with the chorus, then, co-wrote the rest with an Autumn Rowe writer and singing coach from America’s Got Talent.

Interviewer:

I think you were a Fusion student when you wrote it. Was it hard to find time for songwriting while attending classes?

Sophia:

I had written the song before I came to Fusion, but it was a long process to get the song to the final version that you hear now. I did shoot the music video while enrolled at Fusion.

Interviewer:

Please tell us how you approach songwriting?

Sophia:

I listen to a track my producers send me, then usually, something pops up in my head, and the song just flows through me.

Interviewer:

Sophia, Fusion staff and students are so proud of you!

Sophia:

Thank you! I love Fusion and everything all of you have done for me!

Interviewer:

So, where do you go from here? What do you want to see happen with Can’t Stop Thinking About You?

Sophia:

I will always enjoy music. I will continue writing, acting, singing, and keep on working hard to make my dreams come true. I want to see plenty more views of my new song, and a ton of new followers as my fan base.

Interviewer:

I hope you achieve all your dreams. Congratulations, again, Sophia!

Sophia:

Thank you very much! I hope I achieve them as well, and thank you again for the interview!
