Sabrina Carpenter paid a special visit to Seacrest Studios at Children’s Hospital Colorado. She sang her hit song, “We’ll Be the Stars,” and dished about what it’s like to be part of the 100th Disney Channel Original Movie, Adventures in Babysitting. Fun fact: we found out that Sabrina has never actually babysat in real life! Sabrina is best known for her role as Maya on the Disney Channel show, Girl Meets World, saying she feels a strong connection to this character having played her now for over three years.
Being so accomplished at such a young age, a lot of kids wanted to know how she became an actress. Sabrina had great advice for any aspiring actors or actresses saying that it is important to remember that “as an actor you get told no a lot before you get told yes,” so always make sure you work hard and are determined, and “know who you are and what you’re capable of no matter what anyone says.”
In addition to acting and singing, Sabrina has been dancing since the age of two, admitting that she gets it from her mom and older sister. Superfan, Leah, asked Sabrina who her dream duet partner would be. Having trouble picking just one, at first she said Ed Sheeran after hearing he stopped by Seacrest Studios Colorado last summer, but then Sabrina also said Adele, saying she was “one of my first inspirations in music.”
Before she sang her song, “We’ll Be the Stars,” Abby asked her what her favorite song was to jam out to, explaining that she loves “Classic” by MKTO. Sabrina agreed that “Classic” is a fun song and shared that she’s also been dancing to Calvin Harris and Rihanna’s song, “This Is What You Came For.”
Sabrina sang her hit song with her sister, Sarah, while sisters and mega fans, Maya and Leah, sang and danced along. Sabrina then played a favorite game of Seacrest Studios Colorado called Backwards Forwards, where she was challenged with saying the phrase “Eyes Wide Open” into the mic, trying to replicate the phrase backwards. Getting VERY close to saying the backwards phrase perfectly, Sabrina can now add this game to another one of her many talents.
Before taking pictures and signing autographs with everyone who came out to see her, Sabrina had one last piece of advice saying, “I know you all have dreams and aspirations and it means the world to me…that I can be a person in your life that hopefully can bring you some happiness…I love you guys all so much!”
We love you too, Sabrina! Thank you so much for stopping by and chatting with us, we had a blast!
