Hello!

My name is Tessa Wilson, I am an 18-year-old high school senior from Michigan! I have the amazing privilege to study music, meet amazing people, and sing more a cappella this summer for 10 days at the world renowned A Cappella Academy! Approximately the top 15% of auditionees are accepted for the summer sessions! For many years in the past, I've been too afraid to send in my audition, but this year was my last possible year to attend so I fought my fears of rejection and sent my audition in, and I'm so happy I did. 

For the past 9 years, my main hobby and personal tool for my sanity has been singing in a choir, and for the last 3 years, I've been able to be in Skyline High School's Premiere A Cappella Group, Skyline Blues. Being a part of an A Cappella group has made me break out of my shell, and become confident in every part of who I am, not just as a musician. Working in an A Cappella group I've been able to make the deepest connections with my peers and friends. Singing with other people has helped me create bonds that will last a lifetime, and I’d love to make even more.

I'm so excited to meet some people who feel the same passion and love for A Cappella as I do, work with amazing staff and educators, and of course, make beautiful, enlightening music with such talented people. To be able to make it there, it takes some money. The tuition for the academy is $1995. Next year, I will be heading off to college. My single mother and I have both been working hard to make sure I am prepared for the financial burdens that college will bring upon me and my future. Because of this, I’m asking for donations so I can lessen the financial hardships placed on my wonderful, hardworking mother.

By donating you can help me get to ACA!! Going to ACA might be my last opportunity for A Cappella singing, depending on where I end up going to college. If I am able to embrace this experience it will make me beyond happy and grateful. 

Family, Friends, Music Lovers, Strangers, and Anyone In between,
Any amount of donation helps! I'm still in awe that I made it in, and I'm so excited!!! AHHH Thank you so much :)))
