When other little girls were taking ballet classes or playing with dolls, Shelley was singing. From the time she was little, her house was filled with music of every kind - from gospel to pop. Artists from EVIE to Elton John inspired this young performer. She started focusing her efforts on her God-given gifts as early as middle school, when she began taking voice lessons. She continued her studies all the way through her schooling, including earning her degree in vocal performance at Baylor University.
