Singer. Songwriter. Symbol of resilience.
There are few people online these days who don't know who Rebecca Black is. Sure, she was once known as the "Friday" girl of 2011 YouTube fame.

Older, wiser and confident in her talent, Black is excited to finally share her original music and herself with the world - on her terms.
