She writes based on past and current relationships. Writing comes easy to Ailawishes due to one of her family members being a Jazz musical genius. That’s right, the late Jazz musician Dizzy Gillespie is family to Ailawishes and the talent of the greats flows through her blood. Keep a look out for her songs and her other works. She currently has a song “Average” that has been nominated for the Indie Soul Song of the Year Award at the Indie R&B Music Awards in Atlanta.
