Here is an interview with Shi:

When did you first start singing?

Since before I could form words. 
 
What role does music play in your life?

I've had trouble finding the words to say what I've seen, and I've had trouble finding out how to get a human to feel the way I felt. Music is a medium of communication for me. I can plug into, or even write, a conversation between the lyrics and the progression of the instrumentation. It's the only way I can write a conversation between me and another person before it happens. And if even just for the three or four minutes, me and whoever else is plugging into that song, I feel as if they are seeing and feeling and hearing what my existence is permanently. For a moment I am seen. Music gives that to me. 
 
What makes you unique?

The way my face is, the way my body is, the way I sing, why I want to sing, the way I carry myself and my words and my life.
 
Do you have a wish list of writers you'd like to write with? If so, who?

1. Bruno Mars
2. Sia
3. Quincy Jones
 
What are your top three all-time favorite songs and why?

"Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen
"Purple Rain" by Prince
"Take Me to Church" by Hozier

You can FEEL the message in all these songs, amazing examples of melody talking to lyrics in a powerful way.
 
What is your strongest musical strength?

My voice is completely my own .
 
What is your greatest musical weakness?

That I can't play an instrument. But who says I can't learn?
 
Who are your top three favorite and most influential artists? What is it about your favorite artists that you are drawn to?

1. Prince
2. Queen
3. Stevie Wonder

I am drawn to their greatness, their life journeys and mostly their ability to put music first in all things.
 
If you had to pattern your career after another artist, who would it be and why?

Beyoncé. Not necessarily as what she encompasses as a performer, but who she stands for as a woman. She is a powerhouse. She empowers strength, especially in women. She is connected to the world. She wears many "hats" — she sings, dances, acts and can move through all facets of music. I also identify with her using a stage name to help her become what she needs to be for her fans.
 
Why do you think you should be the next "American Idol"?

Because I really am in this to be an idol … to America and the world.
