Ailee talks aliens, her dreams, new album preparations, and covers Beyonce on ‘Sketchbook’
Rookie singer Ailee triumphed the aliens.
On the July 13th episode of KBS 2TV‘s ‘Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook‘, Ailee smiled bashfully as she said, “When I type in my name on internet portal sites, it tells me that my name is searched more often than ‘aliens’.”
In written Korean, the spelling for ‘alien’ is very similar to Ailee’s name, and it comes up as a suggestion.
The singer who timidly remarked that the fame hasn’t quite become real to her suddenly transformed into a fierce and professional performer as soon as the music came on performing a powerful cover of Beyonce‘s “Love On Top“. Ailee also shared her unique dream on the show. “When I make more money, I would like to build a school in the Dominican Republic. I would like to keep my promise with the children,” she said.
Ailee who is busy preparing her new album was asked what kind of music she would like to create next. “I’d like to do something that has a different feel from “Heaven”,” she said. “If I ever receive an award at the Grammy Awards, I will be sure to thank Yoo Hee Yeol’ Sketchbook,” she then hilariously promised.
