A Cappella Academy 2019

Hi! My name is Kali Sheppard, and I am an 18 year old vocalist from Danvers, Massachusetts. This November, I auditioned for A Cappella Academy, which is a very selective 10-day vocal intensive camp in Los Angeles, California. Recently, I have found out that I have been accepted, and to describe my feelings as grateful is an extreme understatement.

I had the privilege of attending A Cappella Academy last year as well, where I participated in Collector's Edition, a co-ed group.

Here is a video of our group at the 2018 showcase

Here is the link for my audition this year! 

This year, attending A Cappella Academy would mean a lot to me, as it is the last possible year I can attend (the camp is for ages 13-18, and the last year to participate is the summer going into college for most). Since this is my last year, you can probably assume that I am going into college, which is part of the reason that I am trying to raise funds via gofundme, so I can lessen the financial burden my parents are already getting ready to begin.

This fall, I will be a freshman attending Berklee College of Music, in Boston, Massachusetts. If you know me well, you know how excited I am. If you don't, music is simply put my life. I spend my weekends, weekdays, and nights participating in multiple ensembles at my school, as well as singing in my free time, as well. 

I have learned so much from this experience last year, that I would do everything in my power to experience it again, and to spend another week doing exactly what I love. 

Tuition for camp is $1995, and my ULTIMATE goal is to raise all of those funds myself. Although I know that asking for donations from everyone is wishful thinking, if you are unable to donate please SHARE this page, so that there would be more of a chance of others seeing this page, as well!

I cannot express how grateful I am for the opportunity to attend A Cappella Academy again, and how much your support means to me! The date that funds are due is still TBD, although last year it was March 20.

Thank you againandagainandagain,
Kali Sheppard
