Show transcript
00:00
So we are here with singer and songwriter Delilah.
00:07
Ah I'm so honored to be here today and to be able
00:10
to talk with you today.
00:11
I'm excited. So we're excited to have you.
00:14
We're super excited to have you and you're only 16,
00:17
right? Oh my gosh,
00:19
dude, such a young talent.
00:21
How does it feel to be the first woman signed to Natania
00:26
Cano's label? Insane.
00:29
I feel like sometimes it doesn't even feel real.
00:32
I'm extremely honored, especially like being the Primera Mujer,
00:36
the first, the first woman to be able to expand Los
00:40
Te and to work with Nata Nel Cano and all the other
00:43
artists that are signed his label like Gavito Vallesteros or Alejandro Buena
00:48
and just like to,
00:49
to be able to work with them and to write with them
00:51
is, is a surreal feeling.
00:54
That's awesome. And I would imagine even maybe even the youngest
00:57
too. So, I mean,
00:58
if they say like,
00:59
I don't know how young you can get.
01:01
You're 16. That's awesome.
01:03
And what's the hardest thing about being an artist for me is
01:09
probably leaving home so often leaving my siblings and like my friends
01:15
in town. but I always call them whenever I get
01:20
the chance to. And I hope that in,
01:22
in the future we can all go on like a tour.
01:24
Like like when we go on tour,
01:26
if I get the opportunity to go on tour that I can
01:28
take them all on a bus.
01:29
And I, I have four younger siblings.
01:31
So yeah, so you want like everyone in a bus like
01:34
Selena and yeah, I feel like that's one of the hardest
01:40
one of the hardest things is leaving my family and who's
01:43
an artist that you look up to.
01:45
I definitely say like Na Nel Cano.
01:48
I think a big one too as well.
01:50
Selena Quintanilla. I know you mentioned her as it's kind of
01:53
crazy. She's, she's a very big mentor of mine.
01:57
I, I always look at her,
01:59
her past interviews or the things that she did or how she
02:03
impacted people and I,
02:04
I wanna do the same thing and then obviously like the whole
02:08
lo at the team is very,
02:09
they, they always push me to be my best.
02:11
Y I look at them a lot for inspiration and look up
02:14
to them a lot.
02:14
So it's like one big family.
02:16
Yeah, honestly. Yeah.
02:18
And especially being like like being the only girl in Los at
02:21
they're very protective like it's like a big,
02:23
it's like Big Brother energy,
02:24
you know. So,
02:25
yeah. Yeah, I love that.
02:30
Yeah. And what's one thing?
02:32
No, like no one knows about you or,
02:34
like, hardly anyone knows about you.
02:37
I have a favorite movie from,
02:39
like, when I was really little or definitely,
02:41
I also have like,
02:41
a favorite show too.
02:43

02:43
a lot of people don't really know this but El Chavo,
02:46
like, I, I really,
02:47
like, I really liked watching that show.
02:49
Yeah, especially with my,
02:50
like, I remember going to,
02:51
like being with my Alito and having that playing on the TV
02:54
or, like having the Telo novelas playing and there's this
02:57
other show or this movie?
02:59
Sorry, that I grew up kinda watching a little bit mostly
03:02
from my mom's side because my mom's from Washington too.
03:04
She's American. So I'm,
03:06
I'm Mexican American. So it's called Fern.
03:10
It's very, it's a very,
03:11
yeah, it's a very old movie but it's,
03:14
it's a good one.
03:15
It brings, it gives me a little nostalgia every time I
03:17
