We had the pleasure of interviewing Kyla Carter over Zoom video! 

Rising star Kyla Carter's talent runs deep whether she is acting, singing, dancing, or performing on Broadway. Kyla is currently starring as ‘CJ Suki’ in the new
DreamWorks animated series “TrollsTopia” streaming on Hulu and Peacock. She can also be seen starring as the same character in the Netflix series “Trolls The Beat Goes On”. Kyla’s single “Because You’re You” from Season 4 of the Netflix series soundtrack has become a hit with Trolls fans and beyond, garnering over 28K-streams on YouTube alone. As a singer/songwriter herself, Kyla recently released an original song “Average Puzzle Piece”. True to Kyla’s nature, the sweet song has messages encouraging self-love and building self-confidence. While Kyla’s latest single “Half Full Half Empty” takes a deeper dive into her uncanny lyrical ability, relaying a feeling many can relate to over the course of this pandemic. Kyla will next be releasing the emotional, pop power ballad “3AM” on June 18th (similar to the likings of Olivia Rodrigo).
 
Kyla was born and raised in Long Island, New York – where she took inspiration to become a performer from her icon Shirley Temple. She began her acting career at 5-years old when she was cast as ‘Hattie the Witch’ in the Nickelodeon animated series “Wallykazam!” and ‘Young Nora Durst’ in the HBO drama series “The Leftovers.” With her passion for theatre arts, she began her Broadway career at 8-years old playing ‘Gretl von Trapp’ in “The Sound of Music” (2015-2017), under three-time Tony Winner Jack O’Brien. She then went on to play ‘Susan Waverly’ in the Broadway production of “White Christmas” (2018-2019). Overall, Kyla spent 18-months touring the U.S. and Canada, performed over 500 shows, visited 50 cities and 26 states, and never missed a day of work or school on the road. Outside of Broadway, Kyla’s professional acting credits thus far include work for ABC, HBO, Nickelodeon, PBS, Netflix, Hulu, Peacock and NBCUniversal. 
 
Kyla can next be seen singing and acting in the video/book series “Junga the Dancing Yeti Meets Heidi,” in which she voices the lovable leading role of ‘Heidi’. The character is a bright 6-year-old girl who values her family, friends, always likes to do the right thing, and along the way shares anti-bullying messages. Kyla co-wrote and provided the music for two songs in the upcoming YouTube/audiobook series – expected to release on May 25th.
 
When Kyla is not acting, she spends time writing her own original music, performing popular cover songs on her YouTube Channel, dancing, and modeling. During the pandemic, Kyla began her own podcast ‘Kyla's Korner’ The podcast was featured weekly on ‘The Mark White Show’ airing on Radio Alabama’s KIX 96.3 FM/100.3 FM, and is still available on Kyla's Instagram and Facebook pages. Kyla’s mission is to spread positivity and kindness to her community. She shares encouraging and motivational messages to her listeners with her motto being: ‘Live life sunny side up!’ She is an advocate for spreading sunshine and positivity wherever she goes. Kyla is truly an inspiration and positive role model for other young girls and boys during these unprecedented times.
