Bailee Madison talked about her new venture into music at the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women fashion show last Wednesday.

“It’s my first time singing and dancing, and I’ve always kind of wanted to enter that world, and never found an authentic fit. And so I was able to combine literally everything that I love, like behind the camera, in-front, and then the world that I hope to venture into which is music,” Madison told uInterview exclusively.

In the movie musical, called A Week Away, Madison starred opposite Kevin Quinn, who played a bad boy who is ordered to attend Christian summer camp after a run-in with the law. Madison was also an associate producer. The “faith based musical” is set to feature re-imagined versions of popular Christian songs by artists like Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith.

“I’m a country girl at heart,” said Madison.

The Bridge To Terebithia actress appeared all grown up at the fashion show in a short dress with long sleeves and a plunging neckline designed by Michael Fausto.

“He sent three different sketches, two of them were long, and then there was this little short guy that kinda popped out, and we were like, ‘You know what? Let’s go short!'” said Madison.
