My name is Kali Sheppard, and I am a 17 year old singer from Danvers, Massachusetts. This November, I auditioned for A Cappella Academy, a 10-day vocal camp held in Los Angeles. Only the top 13% are admitted, so when I was officially accepted, I was extremely grateful and excited to embark on this journey alongside less than 100 other vocalists.
(If you would like to see my audition video, here is the link!: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=02Qnco9TsFQ)
The earliest I remember myself singing was when I was two, and from there, I participated in school and other musicals, music groups, concert band, etc.. It wasn't until freshman year I realized the amazing nature of A Cappella, and how much it would impact my life as a whole. Sophomore year, I joined my first group, and it has literally TAKEN OVER my life now. I rehearse every day, and the fact that I ahave the opportunity to even share my love for this art with people holding the same values, proves that this isn't something I want to pass up.
Which is why I am here today.
Tuition for camp comes up to $1,995 (not including airfare to and from LA from Boston). It is my ultimate goal to raise enough money to attend camp without putting any financial strain on my family, and given that they will have to be paying for me more and more the next 4-5 years through college, I am trying to make it easy on them now.
The littlest amount goes the longest way, and if you can't donate anything, please SHARE this page to untimately help spread the word of my goal to more people.
The deadline for any fundraising efforts for Academy is March 20, so please, help me spread the word and help me get to LA in June!
Thank you so much,
