Latisha went to Massachusetts to be in a music video for European Talk Show Hosts, Ylvis! The two brothers have been in the entertainment business since 2000 and have really made a name for themselves overseas. Similar to Jimmy Kimmel and The Lonely Island, the boys make comedic music videos that air during the show. Their comedic personalities were fun to be around and their crew was fun to work with! Check back to see Latisha as a Choir Member for the music video in November 2013!
Latisha is excited to announce that she will officially be attending the 4 week Summer Acting Training Program at the New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts this July! She auditioned for the program in January at the AMTC Winter 2013 SHINE event & was awarded a scholarship to attend. She is excited to be able to study her craft in depth and learn more about the business of the entertainment industry with working professionals.
