La La is a very unusual young lady. Instead of spending her free time on the weekend hanging out with her friends, she spends her time working with young children, holding bible study with teens or in the studio making Gods music happen. Her favorite motto to the kids is 'If God gives you the talent and made the opportunity available, then it's for me too. I must pursue his calling and spread His word among the young'.
