Horsford added that her mother put her in a daycare at Mt. Olive Baptist Church where she memorized a poem and went onstage to recite it and something just “lit up” inside her.

“Life was calm for me after that. It still works. I was the only one from my junior high school that got accepted into performing arts. You want some of your friends to go to high school with you, but just being in that environment opened up my heart, my brain, my world and I was fine after that,” said Horsford.
