Fun Fact: “My motto that I live my life by is to spread love like peanut butter. I wasn’t always the greatest, most happy-loving guy. One day a friend of mine came up named Joe and was like, “hey man you need to stop being a jerk and just start spreading love like butter.” I was like, “I don’t really care for butter, but I love peanut butter.” So I woke up the next day and said I’m going to spread love like peanut butter and my day was so much brighter. Three days later I met my wife. I finished my record, my first album. It just seemed like life took a turn for the better when I changed my mindset. It was great. So I’ve done it ever since and I own the trademark.”

Chevel Shepherd

Fun Fact: “I have a pair of lucky socks that I wear onstage and I am wearing them right now. They are mismatched music note socks. I have a black one and I have a white one. I wear the right one on my left foot and the black one on my right foot. It is something I wear on stage every time I perform. I feel without them I am not going to perform my best. That is my good luck charm. I haven’t washed them because I feel as if the luck is going to wash away. They don’t stink though, I promise.”

Sarah Grace
Age: 16

Fun Fact: “I have been singing my whole life and I picked up trumpet in the sixth grade, and I have been blessed to have both of those outlets. I have been able to take things I learned with my voice and move them to trumpet and I have been able to take things that I learned on the trumpet and move to my voice. The more technical side of my singing, I have learned from my trumpet. I never had a vocal lesson until I had a vocal lesson with Kelly Clarkson. I used to be a swimmer and water polo player so don’t mess with me!”
