Watch Destiny Rogers’ full interview and performance in the SoCal Honda Sound Space

The 'West Like' singer opens up about kick-starting her career in 2021

Sitting down with 97.1 Now’s, BruDestiny Rogers opened up about coming up in 2020 and allowing herself to start from the ground up after an amazing 2019.

The Southern California native explains, “I kind of feel like I had to start from the beginning again. 2019 was like the best year of my life. I got to tour, I got to put out my first project, ‘Tomboy’ was goin’ up… then 2020 happened and we couldn’t do anything. So it’s like I’m kind of starting from the ground up again, but I’m in a better headspace.”

Rogers has been hard at work making new music and tells us that she is “super excited” to be able to put everything out this year.

Destiny also explains that her biggest goal for 2021, as the world began to reopen was to be able to perform live in front of an audience again. “I knew in 2021 it would happen, but I just didn’t know when. It kind of happened kind of fast.”

Now, performing in front of a crowd during 97.1 Now’s SoCal Honda Sound Space, the “West Like” singer acknowledged that this performance is a historical moment in her career, as she returns to the stage and live music returns for audiences in California.

Rogers also shares that she has been in close connection with Bruno Mars when making music. “He gives me a lot of advice,” says Destiny. But she clarifies, “I wouldn’t call him my mentor, but it kind of feels like that to me because he has been kind of like big bro.”
