Sophie Beem is just seventeen years old, but she’s had the privilege of working with some of the biggest geniuses in music. Case in point: Beyonce is her mentor. Casual, right? Sophie visited us at the Hollywood Life offices to record an EXCLUSIVE interview for our podcast, and she revealed all when it came to Queen Bey!
Sophie Beem, 17, is quite the talented singer, and she’s been taken under Beyonce‘s wing! So what’s it like to work with the queen herself? “It’s amazing. I still pinch myself every day because I can’t believe that I have someone who has been through it all, guiding me,” Sophie told us in an EXCLUSIVE interview for the HollywoodLife.com podcast. “It’s so special to have that.” LISTEN TO OUR FULL INTERVIEW WITH SOPHIE BEEM HERE.
“She really allows me to be true to who I am and create the music I want to create,” Sophie added — she’s signed to Bey’s label. “In the beginning of the process, everyone thought I’d be an acoustic singer/songwriter. I went more towards dancing and singing, in a rhythmic pop lane. I’m so in love with it and so happy. It’s my favorite sound,” she revealed.
As for any tips Beyonce has bestowed upon the young singer? “A piece of advice she gave me for stage stamina is to run on the treadmill and sing at the same time,” Sophie shared. “She does that…I think she does it in heels. She works so hard. Another thing I take from her is her work ethic is so inspiring, it makes me want to work harder and harder every day.” Awesome! Take a listen to Sophie’s new track below:
