    Speaking of profits from her hit, she revealed she would be donating money to Japan, as well as to her school.

    ‘I am donating money to my school and Japan,’ she revealed.

    ‘My school, El Rancho Charter is really where I started focusing on singing. I feel bad. Japan happened so close to mine, and I feel like I’m taking away attention from it. I really just want to give back.’
