She dreamed of the world hearing her voice and being motivated by her instrument. A dynamic live performer with encouraging lyrics and powerful arrangements is the condensed description of Sherry Amour.
The journey began at the age of seven when Sherry was given her first opportunity to sing a solo at her church’s Christmas play. From this spark a flame was ignited, for it was then that she knew that this was a passion worth pursuing.
