Allison White, singer

Allison White

Allison is a sixteen-year-old sophomore at Daviess County High School in Owensboro, KY. She started singing in middle school as a choir member -- alto, second soprano and first soprano. During that time Allison joined the church and middle school choir. These were Allison's first choir experiences. In seventh grade Allison won her school's talent contest and then she started entering in talent contests in county fairs and made it to the State Fair that summer.

Since then, Allison has become a classical first soprano at the University of Louisville's Kentucky Music Institute. She was invited to tour Europe this summer as a music ambassodor.
