To date, Camryn has released three singles and is looking forward to her debut album.
“It will have everything from love songs to fun fast songs. It's so relatable for any age, and most importantly, it’s age-appropriate.”
What inspires her
Camryn looks up to Mariah Carey, Demi Lovato, Christina Aguilera, Beyonce, and Lady Gaga, artists she thinks are “all so true to who they are and don't let anybody change them.”
“I love how much power they have in their voices and that is what I want to have in my career,” she adds.
Camryn also talks about how she “loves” Charice Pempengco.
“She has such an amazing voice. She has such a powerful voice and base an amazing range!”

“My favorite thing is meeting my fans! I love to meet so many new people every day. It's a great way to not only connect with them but to make new friends! I love all my fans and that will never change!” Camryn relates.
Her message to Filipino fans is, “Thank you so much! You guys are the best! I hope to see u all at the show!”
