And, of course her mom would play Salsa and Merengue on holidays and at birthday parties. As a kid she would put on dance numbers at home for the family.
Liza was always eager to participate in the schools talent shows. At the age of eleven along with some friends from the neighborhood who created an R&B girl group called the "uptown girls". With their friends and family as an audience they went around singing to the songs of Mary J. Blige and SWV.
