Kandi shares how hard it was to see Kristin struggle with a song she loved so much.

on May 3, 2013

This week on The Kandi Factory was an interesting week. It started off very shaky. Working with Kristin I thought it was going to be easy, because I thought, "Oh OK, she's a good looking girl." I thought she was going to be able to sing. Kristin just didn't work. She didn't work at learning her lyrics and that was a major problem.

You know sometimes, certain songs, I am attached to. I'm not going to lie. And that was one of them. And I just felt like she ruined it.
When she got on the stage and had the nerve to forget an entire half of a verse and just stood there and held the microphone, oh I wanted to throw tomatoes at her, really. I was like, "C'mon girl. What are you doing to my song?"

Cory is a very unique guy. I’ve never had the opportunity to work with anybody who had any form of autism. We just didn't know what to expect. So I already knew it was going to be a learning experience. And then he could not [opera style] stop singing like he's on stage in a Broadway play. I was sitting there thinking, "Oh my goodness, how are we going to make this work?"
