Turning 22 means CHAAANGGGE. This is the year. Low key, last year was the year too. 21 brought so much love into my life. The growth is worth a smile and a half. The experiences exceeded what I’d ever expect the year to have had, and the people have made my last year feel like the best most entertaining rom-com. I am so happy and so grateful to experience life. Thank you. Here’s a ridiculous video of me ripping off my 21 year old skin.
Leah attended the University of Florida and has traveled often thanks to her singing and acting career. She’s currently in Los Angeles, California, while her parents are in Florida.
Lewis Was on The Voice
A talented singer, Lewis showcased her vocal talent on The Voice season 4 in 2013. She apparently didn’t make it very far as, none of the judges turned their chairs for her.
According to her profile, the then-15-year-old hoped to break the country music stereotype for Asian-Americans. Even though she didn’t make it, Lewis stuck to music, posting cover songs on her YouTube channel.
Lewis Has Acted in Madison High
Lewis’ earliest credits go as far back as 2005, when she appeared in a short film called Lullaby. Her first big break came with the 2012 TV movie Madison High, Disney Channel’s High School Musical spinoff.
She later appeared in the YouTube Red series Sing It!, as a contestant in a fictional singing reality competition. She also had a recurring role in the Go90 web series Guidance, where she also sang on the soundtrack.

Gritty is my kind of glitter. Thank you @daniel_diemer for capturing my natural self even though I fought you on it. Tough skinned and hair askew, I could never be any different even though sometimes I try to be. Very few moments will you see me naturally be girly
Besides guest roles in shows like Charmed, The Good Doctor, and Station 19, Lewis was also selected as one of the 21 performers for The CBS Diversity Comedy Showcase in 2018.
In 2019 though, Lewis has bagged the two biggest roles of her career. She’s part of the main cast of The CW’s Nancy Drew and also stars in the upcoming Netflix coming-of-age flick The Half of It.

Payson released his latest album, Nothing to You, in 2018, which has attracted attention for his unusual style. He wrote the song “Can’t Go Back” on the eve of Trump’s presidential inauguration as a commentary on the political situation.
Payson got his start in an a cappella group, SoCal Vocals, which won the ICCA competition (the real competition in Pitch Perfect). The group also competed in the first season of The Sing-Off on NBC.
