Why Naleah wants to be a voice for children fighting cancer:

I would absolutely love to be a voice for children fighting cancer because I want to make a difference and be a part of something bigger than myself. After I lost my grandfather to cancer, I realized that no one should have to go through what he did, especially a child or teen. Whenever I enter the studio I want to know that I am not only training to better myself, but to help better the lives of children fighting this awful disease.
