When you hear a show by Shauna Faegan, you will leave in awe. Maybe it's because she is young, beautiful, and has a brilliant voice. Not many artists have the sweet sound of Shauna Faegan. Her traditional sound reminisces the country gold of Tammy Wynette, Kitty Wells and Patsy Cline.
Her talent was not suppressed by her parents. At the age of six Shauna's parents humored their little girl when she told them she could make her voice do what the professionals could do. Her parents listened and where awe struck. Shauna's voice was not a joke. Immediately, her parents put her in voice lifting lessons that specialized in opera. From there Shauna entertained her family, church and community with her larger than life voice.
