Welcome to BuzzMusic, Summer Rios. Wow! What an incredible cover of "Fingers Crossed" that you performed! What inspired you to cover this particular song? I’ve been a huge fan of Lauren Spencer Smith for a while now and once my manager and team decided our best bet was to do a cover next I instantly knew what song I want to do! Lauren has such a powerful strong voice and the notes she hit are insane and I want to try and match the energy as much as I could! Fingers Crossed hits home to me personally. When you perform covers, such as "Fingers Crossed," would you say you hone into particular life events of your own to bring such emotionality to the song, or are all of the emotions something you need to work to bring forth into the songs you sing?

When doing covers I always remember to put my full emotions and feelings into it so I can feel the song more and the viewers can feel the emotion. I always keep my personal perspective in the back of my mind so I can relate to the song more and feel each lyric. What aspect of "Fingers Crossed" and the expressions you brought to it were you hoping would resonate most with your audience?

I love the lyric where she says: “Wish you said you loved me when you didn’t have your fingers crossed” because I think that can mean a ton to many different people when it comes to just wanting to feel love and accepted. It resonates with my audience because I tend to write sad love songs so covering it was keeping my theme on track and keeping my fans and audience still hyped!

Do you see yourself crafting another cover as your next release or can listeners expect more original work in the months to come?

More original work for sure! I’ve been working on a lot of originals lately and have been in and out of the studio and booking lots of writing sessions with my producers What's next for you?

Im hoping to come out with a ton of EPs and albums within these next couple of months so be on the lookout! I’m traveling a ton soon as well.
