Aside from her acting career, Reed is also a singer. She talked about her music career in an interview with Skelly Add: “I knew that I always loved to sing, but I didn’t realize I could sing until I did school plays. I grew up in the church so I was constantly singing, but you know everyone that goes to church can’t sing. They wanted me to sing and they started asking me, so I figured I had a little voice in there. Some of my favorite artists growing up were Musiq Soulchild and Jasmine Sullivan. But now, I’m obsessed with musical theater. Les Miserables and The Color Purple are two of my faves.” She also created a YouTube series called Roomies 3F: The Color Pencil Series. She talked about it in the same interview, saying: “Roomies 3F took so much work! Although it has imperfections, it further adds to the originality of the show. We’ve never seen a “colored pencil series” before so I felt like I could make my own rules. It’s about three young Black artists living in New York City and an older white woman with her dog is chosen to be their fourth roommate.”
