“My story’s just begun…”
Wow … that was all I could say when I heard Madison sing the first note of the first song she performed that night. We’d come out to hear her sing, my children and I, along with some friends and their kids. I was instantly blown away by her talent. We loved every song we heard in the next couple of hours, as Madison played the guitar and the piano, and sang some of her own original songs along with covers of some old and current favorites.
My daughter has a new line on her list of things she’d like to be when she grows up … a musician like Madison Shea. She was mesmerized by Madison. At the end of the night, I was shocked to see my often shy daughter running right up to Madison and whispering something in her ear. Madison smiled and leaned down to give Erica a hug. When she came back to me, I asked Erica what she’d said to Madison. “I told her that she did a great job and she looked very beautiful,” she said. She was absolutely right.
Photographing these promotional images for Madison was a joy and an honor. Just like her music, she carries herself with a lyrical grace and a depth of soul. God has gifted this young woman in so many ways, and I am looking forward to following her journey from here.
As in all of my blog posts, I wanted to share a few of Madison’s images here, but I also wanted you to hear her. With her music company’s permission, I put together a slideshow of her images set to one of her original songs. Click this link or any image on this post to hear “Fairy Tale” by Madison Shea. I think you’ll agree, she’s pretty incredible.
Oh, and did I mention she’s still in high school? All that talent already unfolding such a young lady … simply amazing. I can’t wait to see, to hear, what’s next for her.
