What to Expect
I write my original music from the hardships that I have gone through throughout my 20 years of life. I have struggled with many medical challenges and am still in a wheelchair, I can walk and do stairs just not for too long. My music is very inspiring to the audience, I show them that no matter what state you may be in physically or mentally that you can follow your dreams and do what you are desired to do. There is usually never a dry eye in the audience. Not sad tears but joyful, in the way that they can now see that anything is possible and the little things in life don't matter as much as they once thought. I mix in my original music with popular and old time covers that gets every age involved. It is the most rewarding feeling when an audience member comes up to me and says, "Just in those 30 minutes you have opened my eyes on how to look at life, I can't thank you enough for changing my life." This happens just about every time I perform and it truly makes all the hard work one hundred percent worth it!
Ali McManus, from Bloomfield Hills, MI is an up and coming singer/songwriter. She’s written countless original songs and is currently in LA recording her first EP with Jack Douglas producer of John Lennon. She recently sang for thousands of people at the sold out Shriner’s Circus in Detroit. She has sung at numerous events, festivals, fundraisers, coffee houses among other things. She consistently gives back to the community and sings at hospitals around the country as a Patient Ambassador, such as Children’s Hospital in Detroit and Shriner’s Hospital in St. Louis. Ali has defied the odds with her singing as she has limited lung capacity at 30%. In not allowing anyone to stop her from living her dream, she was determined to write songs and learned to play guitar and piano within months. She is a force to be reckoned with.
