Sarah’s singing career started at the tender age of 5 when she belted out her own rendition of a bluesy tune, Oh John the Rabbit complete with backup singers. “When I heard the applause, I was hooked,” she says today of that childhood performance in her hometown of Monticello, FL. Her passion for singing and performing landed her as Marilyn Monroe in the Universal Studio’s Hollywood Legend’s show. At Universal and Disney’s MGM Studios, both in Orlando, she also sang as Carmen Miranda with her Latin Big Band and Disney's Hoop Dee Doo Revue Show.
