After airing on the show Making a Model with Yolanda Hadid, Mikayla Gilles is ready to add singer/songwriter to her ever-expanding resumé.
In light of this year’s events, Gilles became inspired to not only write her own song but record, produce and create a music video for it as well.
While experiencing the covid lockdown in Chicago, Gilles taught herself how to record and produce using a production software called Logic. Gilles explains what the learning process was like for her:
“It forced me to grow this thick skin I didn’t even know I had and it has only made me fall that much more in love with being an artist, a creative force, a leader, a believer and a boss. I want this for life.”
