She was able to captivate the Eton Centris crowd who, prior to her performance, were merely people going about their businesses. But 2 songs later, they are now new fans of ANDREAH. She then capped off her day with a quick drive-thru at her favorite Filipino restaurant chain on the way to her band rehearsals.
