For Chesney Claire, There’s Nothing like the Feeling of Accomplishment after Performing Live

Award-winning singer-songwriter Chesney Claire, who won the gold as the Female Vocalist of The Year, an honor conferred by the International Singer-Songwriters Association, initially became interested in music as a young child. Thanks to her talent, perseverance, and positive attitude, she is now way on her way to achieving all of her goals.

How did you discover your passion for music?

It all started when I was little and my grandpa would sit me down at his piano and spend forever trying to teach me simple songs. In high school, I joined the show choir and fell in love with performing live. At age 15, I quickly gathered some covers and hit all the stages in my hometown of Lake Charles, Louisiana.

What led you to become a singer?

I grew up in a family that loved music. My grandparents wanted me in the church choir, so I did that for years. My brother was an avid lover of all music genres, so I grew up listening to all of them. Now that my brother and grandparents are all angels, that only makes my drive and inspiration skyrocket.
