She also has a YouTube channel where she’s posted videos of herself performing songs including Rihanna’s California King Bed and Adele’s Someone Like You.
Speaking to Kidz World back in 2011, Lapri opened up about music, saying: “Actually the idea of singing kind of just formed by itself over time, as a child it was the best thing in the world to me to do.
“It was kind of a way to help me escape from my problems and just relax.”
She went on to say: “I started very young, so I kind of developed singing by remixing the ABC’s and things like that. So I just gradually started doing it more and more every day!”
The star previously cited musical influences including Justin Bieber and Beyoncé.
At a later age, she decided to pursue an acting career and starred in the TV series Reed Between the Lines in 2011.
She went on to feature in Standing Up, short film Core: A Short Film About Bullying, Red Band Society, Downsized and Den of Thieves.
However, her biggest role to date was playing Tariq’s fellow student Effie while he was at Choate school.
The pair were running an illicit side business selling drugs to the rich kids on their campus, however, Effie reported Tariq to the dean and saw him getting kicked out of the prestigious institution.
He was angry with her to say the least and displeased to see Effie again when she turned up in Power Book II: Ghost attending Stansfield College where Tariq was also studying.
Although they worked together again, Tariq betrayed Effie this time and told her it was simply business with pair appearing to call it quits.
While fans thought they’d seen the last of Effie, she later appeared in Ghost and it seemed Tariq now expressed a romantic interest in her now.

The pair had previously developed feelings for each other but the relationship had soured after she got him expelled.
This time, Effie had a tempting proposition for Tariq, asking him to help her shift some cocaine in exchange for half a cut of the profits.
As Monet Tejada (Mary J. Blige) hadn’t given Tariq any product recently, he agreed to work with Effie to make some cash.
Nonetheless, this caused problems after Tariq’s friend Brayden Weston (Gianni Paolo) found he’d been left out of the deal and was furious with his roommate.
Although this leaves the door open for Effie and Tariq to team up in the future as well as their blossoming romance, their partnership also has the potential to explode.
Fans will have to wait and see if Effie is going to betray Tariq again or if she’s decided to work with him.
