She’s humble and understands that the way to be successful is through hard work & dedication.

Sedne ‘Leilani Marnai’ Lacy, a rising sweet sixteen star in the making with her unique style and sound of R&B, pop, soul, and hiphop.  Her talents as recording artist, dancer, model, actor, and vocalist all make up a perfect package for producers, Yung Chill, Problem Solvers of Houston, Texas.

She studied jazz, tap, and ballet as a young toddler to little princess and seeing it all pay off when she auditioned at her school – Katy Creative Arts/West Houston Charter School – and landed the title role of ‘Dorothy’ in the school’s production of “Wizard of Oz” (2001).  She was the youngest performer to ever appear on a Carnival Cruise Line ship, (2003).  In 2005 she was cast as ‘The Sugar Plum Fairy‘ in KCS’s annual holiday production and this little sweetie has been listed in “Kids of America” (2001-2004).  Lacy danced as a member of “Belief“, an all-girls singing/dancing group, (2006).  She sang the National Anthem for the Katy Ruff Riders professional indoor football team (2007). In June 2012 Sedne was scouted to audition for “XFactor” performing in the presence of judges Simon Cowell, Demi Lovato, Britney Spears and L.A. Reid, and then in July 2012 she performed at the Red Cat Jazz Cafe.  Her talent and beauty comes second only to her beautiful nature.  As Sedne embarks on what is surely to be a successful career as an entertainer, she is ever mindful that it all starts as a simple dream.


THE HEAT:  Welcome to The Heat, Ms. Sedne Lacy! How you doing?

LACY:  I’m pretty good… Just got in from school.

THE HEAT:  That’s right, you are still in school…what grade are you and what school do you attend?

LACY:  I’m in the eleventh grade, a junior, at Cypress Woods in Houston, Tx.

THE HEAT:  It’s always amazing to me when I sit down and find, surfing the world, amazing young talent as you. When did you first fall in love with music?

LACY:  My mom introduced music to me from her womb. And every since I’ve been on this earth, I’ve known nothing but music.  I was a huge Destiny Child fan.  Even today I model myself behind Beyonce` and Kelly.

THE HEAT:  You’re doing a great job at it lady.  You have two videos on, tell us about those.

LACY:  I have a lot of covers on youtube as well.  The two songs that are getting great reviews right now are LIKE A MODEL and CRUSH.  I really like LIKE A MODEL because I can relate to it being geared towards girls my age.

THE HEAT:  Where do you get your inspiration to do your music?

LACY:  The love for music really inspires me.  Music has been that one constant thing in my life that has never changed.  When I have those days when I say, “OMG!, this is hard”, music has always been there for me to help make it okay.  The passion and the drive I’ve had for it has never changed.

THE HEAT:  When did you make the decision to do music as a career?

LACY:  It wasn’t until recently, like last year when I decided I wanted to be a singer and entertainer.  I really love doing this.

THE HEAT:  What’s coming up next with you?

LACY:  I’m performing in November at the House of Derèon.

THE HEAT:  Are there any other people who have influenced you in the music industry other than Destiny’s Child?

LACY:  Alicia Keys definitely…I think she’s like a wonder woman, Aaliyah, I look up to her and of course Michael Jackson, I’m pretty sure every artist has looked up to him in some way and Mariah Carey, I like the way she does her own thing.

THE HEAT:  Well with as strong a camp as you have right now with Yung Chill/Problem Solvers, I’d say doing your own thing is working great for you.  We want to thank you for giving us these few minutes with the fabulous Sedne Lacy and we wish you nothing but great success!

LACY:  I want to thank you and give a shout out to ALL of Houston, they got my back!  I want to thank you Nik-O-Licious for having me become a member of THE HEAT fam.  Thanks to my family, friends, and especially my fans and those that follow me, and thanks to ALL of you that support me.

Well, there you have it, words from yet another young rising star, Ms. Sedne Lacy of Houston, TX.  Become a fan and/or follow Sedne at:!/PrettySedne
