16-year-old Rebecca was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario, and is currently enrolled at the Metropolitan Preparatory Academy.

For the past few years Rebecca has been working with the coaches at Big Voice Studios, taking ballet lessons, and doing acting workshops.

The first stage production she ever saw was Legally Blonde on Broadway, which she says gave her the affirmation that performing on stage was what she was meant to do.

As a career role model, Rebecca looks up to Audra McDonald, as both a kind and humble person, and as an award-winning performer. When she's not on stage, she loves reading and watching movies and playing with her dog Reggie.

Rebecca thinks she'd be the perfect Dorothy because she has lots in common with her rebellious, stubborn and confident spirit. Her favourite show tunes are Maybe This Time, I'm A Star and Don't Cry For Me Argentina.

She says she sings for others because they evoke emotions within her, which aids her in performing different styles of songs.
