Meet Shelby Jane Brooks – a 28-year-old singer-songwriter from Redding, California, who is making a wave in the music industry with her unique blend of R&B and classical training. But, there’s more to Shelby than just her music. She is a fierce advocate for natural beauty and animal welfare, a talented dancer, and a woman on a mission to impact the world positively.
The Journey Begins
Shelby’s love for music ignited at the tender age of four when her mother took her to an N*Sync concert. It was Christina Aguilera’s ‘Back to Basics’ album, however, that truly sparked her passion. At just ten years old, Shelby found herself emulating Aguilera’s style, leading her to start writing and recording her own music. And although her heart belongs to R&B, her vocal technique is strongly influenced by her classical training, and she even performs Opera repertoire.
What Sets Her Apart
Shelby’s uniqueness lies in her unwavering commitment to stay true to herself and to what she believes in. She is a proud vegan and a champion for natural beauty, encouraging women to embrace their authentic selves. Her love for animals extends beyond just advocacy; she dreams of opening an animal sanctuary to protect animals from testing and slaughter.
Furthermore, Shelby’s talent doesn’t stop at singing. She also has a knack for dancing – particularly hip hop – which she discovered a year and a half ago and plans to incorporate into future music videos.
When asked about her favorite lyrics, Shelby cited a line from her song ‘Simply Amazing, PT. II’: ‘I stopped smoking and drinking and suppressing my pain, I’m writing it down now, thanks for reminding me my purpose on this plane.’ These lyrics are a testament to her journey of self-discovery and healing.
Shelby has big plans for the future. She hopes to amass a million followers and use her platform to promote positive messages. Combining her advocacy for natural beauty, humor, veganism, and talent, she aims to make a difference in the world. Her ultimate goal? Opening an animal sanctuary and sharing the rescue stories of the animals she saves.
In terms of her musical career, Shelby hopes to win competitions performing operatic material and eventually go on tour with her original music.
