Relationship of Carla with her Daughter

Carla has only one daughter, which made them closer than ever. Kelsea, on the other hand, also loves her mom more than her father. 

Carla enrolled her daughter in the dance classes when she was just three years old. Her daughter took those classes for nine years

By the age of ten, she was already a graceful dancer.  However, at the age of twelve, she got bored of dancing and was more interested in music. 

She had written her first song at the age of twelve. She dedicated the song to her mother. 

Carla was emotional and had tears in her eyes, which made her daughter realize the power of music. 

She got inspired by how her mother felt a deep connection with the music that she wrote. 

This was the turning point that made her quit dancing and make more music.
