Made in America

Celebrate the variety and vitality of America music, from folktunes and spirituals to jazz standards and Broadway medleys. Vocalist Holly Shelton and her Boyfriendz join the Society in one of the opening events of this year’s Foo Foo Fest.

“Compared to the way Holly works a room, most entertainers can’t work a closet.”

Holly SheltonHolly Shelton grew up in a musical family in Memphis, Tennessee. Her parents groomed her as a performer from an early age. Mary Shelton, her mother and greatest influence, entertained countrywide with original one-woman musical shows. Exposed to art, opera, musical theatre, blues, dance and New Orleans Jazz, Shelton inevitably followed the spotlights.

She earned a Masters in Social Work in 2013 and is a “singing social worker” now. Her advocacy is in the Pearl Harbor Survivors Chapter 138 of Pensacola, among other military areas.

Shelton’s four self-made CD’s are on the Internet. Plus, her voice can be heard on many compilations, including “The Memphis Belles” on The Inside Sounds label (Memphis) and Friends of the Saenger’s “Pensacola in Music.”

Named “Best Vocalist on the Gulf Coast” several times by Gannett and IN News, she continues to delight regional audiences with her colorful and versatile shows.

“Holly’s something over six feet tall, and there isn’t a stage built that will contain her.”
