How long have you been singing and when did you realize your passion for singing?
Family are singers. I have been singing since 12 but never professionally
Tell us something interesting about you. Could be anything from random/hidden/rare talents, upbringing, challenges you’ve faced or moment(s) from your childhood, etc. This is where you can express what you would like us to know that sets your apart!
So our family is large, but my immediate family has been and currently are always the entertainment for all parties and get-togethers. Imagine the VonTrapp family singers meets the Griswolds. We’re that dorky sometimes. I wanted to be a singer, but my sister and brother were always better (very competitive family) and so I decided to become the person that organizes and supports, but want to have fun as well. I’m the family cheerleader ☺ I have been a part of the Karaoke World Championship and did rank 16 nationally in 2020. I was also a singer in the Dallas Symphony Chorus for a season. But my main focus is my immediate family, my husband who is a veteran, a daughter who is my joy and a Music Composition major at University of North Texas and 3 fur babies.
