Charlotte Sometimes, The Voice contest who turned four chairs in the blind auditions, gets personal with Uintervew taking fan questions on her album Circus Head and the disease she battled with when she was young.

At age 14, Charlottte was diagnosed with condylar resorption, a rare disease that eats at your jaw. The disease didn’t stop Charlotte’s singing career as she adapted to sing with a fragile jaw. Since correcting her disintegrated jaw, which stole two of her ribs in the painful process, nothing has changed in her singing. “I don’t think they necessarily change my voice, I have a weird pronunciation. I had to move my mouth around strangely because I had to work with what I had when my bones weren’t really there. I had to be more creative when I sang.”

Since debuting Circus Head over a year ago, Charlotte had been working on a new EP that is set to release soon.

Circus Head is myself, I am a circus head, people invited me all the time. I thought it was a good title for what it is I feel inside all the time. On “Paint the Sky,” I was really head over heels in love with this guy. My last love letter was kind of asking him if he was going to step up and be the man that I need him to be and the answer to that question was no.

Q: You had jaw surgery when you were young. What happened to you and did it affect your signing voice? - elstano

My condylars, which are the bones that hold your jaw together disintegrated, so my whole face fractured they took two of my ribs broke them in half replaced them in my jaw. No, I don’t think they necessarily change my voice, but I have a weird pronunciation. I had to move my mouth around strangely because I had to work with what I had when my bones weren’t really there. I had to be more creative when I sang.

Q: You got your stage name from the children’s book Charlotte Sometimes. Why did that name and story stick out to you ? - Dominicans2

I think because the girl got trapped in time and had to be someone else. I feel like we all feel that way, she also found herself in this person she thought she was. I think to myself there are a few people inside everybody who represent who you really are.
