Sunday, May 14th, 2017 was my final day at School of Rock, and like most of the original cast-members before me, I have finally graduated from "Horace Green Prep". I've had the most amazing time being a part of Broadway's School of Rock and I'm grateful to everyone that helped me along the way. From rehearsals at New 42 to meeting Andrew Lloyd Webber, Laurence Connor, JoAnn Hunter, Ethan Popp and Glenn Slater -- to the Tony Awards, Good Morning America, the Thanksgiving Day parade, Stevie Nicks, Barbra Streisand and much more, it has been an incredible dream I've lived for 20+ months. Special thanks to four of my mentors, David Ruttura, Patrick O'Neill, Lulu Lloyd and Darren Ledbetter from whom I have learned so much about music, acting and dancing. I have made a lifelong family. Here are some photos and video clips from our closing bows and celebration afterward. Enjoy! Keep checking my website and social pages for what's next for me. Until then ... #rockon!

I had the best Sunday ever! First, in the afternoon, I performed as Shonelle in the matinee of Broadway's School of Rock. Next, I ran over to Times Square with my friends to perform at TUNES IN TIMES SQUARE, an annual charity event. Times Square was filled with people and song thanks to a lineup of amazing Broadway performances, including some of my amazing buddies from the show.
I debuted by new original song, "ANGEL"! Later that day, I performed as Shonelle again, for the evening show. It was so fun; and I also really loved hearing my friends backstage singing "ANGEL". I'm so glad they liked it!
This was the 6th annual TUNES IN TIMES SQUARE charity event, presented by Magical Music for Life. The foundation was formed to better the lives of children though the impactful and extraordinary power of music. You can learn more about them at www.magicalmusic.org. I'm honored to have been a part of such a wonderful day!
