KISH: Tell us about you..
I am a singer, songwriter, actor, heart space facilitator and podcaster. I have been singing and performing since I was 8 years old
KISH: What is your dream and how will accomplishing your dream benefit you and others? It has always been my dream to be an accomplished singer that uses her voice to touch the HEARTS of whoever hears me. And to travel the world sharing my heartsongs. To inspire others to live from their authentic heart.
KISH: Who or what inspired you to pursue this dream?
Sharon: My mother was my FIRST cheerleader. She would play Jazz music throughout the house when I was doing my chores prompting my LOVE for Jazz.
KISH: What challenges have you encountered while pursuing your dream?
Sharon: With this genre of music it has always been a challenge drawing a crowd to hear you sing in venues. However, I do feel that is shifting as younger people are discovering Jazz and supporting it… and there is a new focus on this rich American music art form. Also, because Jazz was not as “popular” as R&B, Rock, funk etc, managers, music broker & buyers, often tried to get me to change my style and my focus. So, it was a challenge to stay true to myself and do the music and the expression that I love. I am so glad that I have stayed true to myself. People are coming around to it!
KISH: Who or what inspired you to keep pushing regardless of the challenges you’ve encountered?
Sharon: Whenever I perform it is the audience that keeps me GOING and GROWING. After I sing and someone says how I made their night after a stressful day… Or reminded them of a cherished experience… or a time that they have forgotten and now remembered… or made them smile or relaxed and happy… it’s all worth it…. That’s what keeps me coming back for MORE.
KISH: Please provide final thoughts/advice for others by finishing this sentence… dream.
Sharon: Never stop DREAMING and when you finally realize this is what you want to do for the rest of your LIFE… DO IT!! Allow your Heart to Navigate you and I promise, though it takes time, work, fortitude, the satisfaction and empowerment is tangible… Navigat
