|Born March 6, 1977 in Muskegon, Michigan, I first fell in love with
the stage around age 2. The singer of a piano/banjo duo handed me
a mic and invited me to “sing” with the
band. I'm sure it wasn't much more than cute noise, but they had
trouble getting their mic back and getting me off the stage. Growing
up, there was always a “concert” in the living room where my
siblings & I would get out the cam-corder and lip
sync and dance to our favorite songs. The show was complete with
comedy routines and commercials. Unfortunately, there is
embarrassing video evidence of this. Of which, I hope no one will
In Junior High/High School I was involved in choir. Senior year I
was selected to tour Europe with a choir with young people from all
over the country. Being too boy crazy and only being interested in
what was happening on the weekend, I did not attend the audition.
A couple years after high school, I was asked to perform a couple
songs for a local public television show. I have never seen
the tape, but I'm sure it's funny. The program aired on and off over a
few months at 2:00 am.
After I had my two kids, I decided to pursue my passion of singing
and entertaining. In the fall of 2005, I was hosting an open mic night
in Fremont when I was asked to sing with a band. Christmas of '05,
I started learning to play the guitar. I started working part-time as
aKaraoke Host and DJ. I entered, and won a couple, karaoke
contests. By the spring of '07, I was singing with “The Fifth
Degree.” It was fun and I learned a lot.
Beginning in 2008, I worked as an Acoustic Solo Artist, playing
small venues and wedding ceremonies.
In 2009, after a Chicago audition for America's Got Talent, I was
searching for acoustic gigs in the area and stumbled upon Onager...
the rest is history!
I'm so excited to be a part of Onager! The guys are the best
musicians I've heard. I'm always learning new things and having a
BLAST! Come on out and ROCK with us!!!
