But I am happy to get back in touch with apart of myself that I feel has been lost within these past couple months. Singing is my safe haven, and will always be my first love. I hold this song close to my heart. “I Can’t Make You Love Me”
Before her acting career took off from the ground, Lee Rodriguez saw herself as a successful touring artist. In a 2018 interview, the actress said she wants to go on tour in and also drop an album in the next ten years. She definitely has some singing prowess, the actress sang during her graduation ceremony, and she frequently posts singing videos on her Instagram page.
She also started learning to play guitar in 2018 after her manager and agent got her the instrument for her birthday. Lee is pretty good on the guitar now, but when it comes to her voice, it is her strong suit. When asked about nerves while performing, she said there are little nerves onstage, she gets afraid before going on, but performing takes all the fear away.
The Fabiola actress recounted a time when she was around six or seven years old when she performed for a small crowd, standing at the top of a staircase. She wanted to perform inside a bar, but to get inside, she needed to be at least 21; instead, the manager allowed her to sing near the entrance of the hotel.

Lee Rodriguez joined Instagram in 2015, but looking at her post count does not give that away. The first post from the actress was a video of her playing a keyboard, and over the years, she has updated her followers about her life. The actress only recently became a frequent user of the image sharing site where she is currently promoting her new show. She has over 3,000 followers on her Instagram page, which is only going to rise after the release of Never Have I Ever.
As mentioned above, the actress is pretty frugal about posting pictures on her social media page. When it comes to posting about her relationship on or any personal detail, the actress is even more tightlipped. A beautiful lady by the name of Tira frequented her Instagram page in the 2018s, but what to what extent their relationship went is a mystery. It seems the actress is currently single and ready to further both her singing and acting career simultaneously.
