What to Expect
Depending on your needs, I can supply my own monitor/speaker, microphone and stand, keyboard/electronic piano, and other equipment depending on needs for covers to just be sung with backing tracks versus originals to be played and sung. If you need a singing telegram, please specify if you want me to change the lyrics as in a traditional singing telegram or if you want me to just sing it as is.
Originally from Durham, NC, Cheryl has been performing for audiences of all sizes for the past 25 years. She started composing at age 10, and has performed at weddings, funerals, restaurants, events such as The Muscular Dystrophy Association fundraiser walk, with her largest audience to date close to 15,000 people when she sang “Hero” by Mariah Carey at the 1999 World Special Olympics.
Additional Booking Notes
I was classically trained in voice in college. I started composing on piano and lyrically at around 9 or 10 years old. I am 46 yo with much experience in front of audiences and for all types of genres, but mainly pop and country. I am a coloratura soprano which allows for my vocal agility on low to high and in general going through several notes in a run smoothly as a song calls for it. I do not overdo a song. I am very traditional in singing and as it allows some of my personality but not enough to change a cover. I have a 4 octave range.
