Diamond played Young Nala in The Lion King, a voice-over part in Phineas and Ferb, Francine Greene in Transformers: Rescue Bots, and more. "The first time I ever sang was when I was 6 years old. I sang the national anthem for the 6th grade class graduation. It was at my elementary school. I was really scared and nervous," she says.
On who she is an artist, she says, "I am an edgy hip-hop/pop artist. I'm going to bring my Detroit background and make my mark on pop music. I have the X factor because I have the total package and I have a lot to offer to the music industry today."
