Please allow me to introduce myself…I am...

As a singer, songwriter, and live performing artist, I would like to welcome you to this next chapter of my musical journey... 

First, I would like to THANK YOU in advance for your time, your contribution and for partnering with yours truly on making music history! For just a brief moment I would like to share the beginnings of my musical journey with you.

Sherry Amour at 7. Singing her first church solo for a Christmas Play

The journey began at the age of seven when I was given my first opportunity to sing a solo at my church's Christmas play. From this spark a flame was ignited; for it was then that I knew that this was a passion worth pursuing. In short, the Music Love Bug bit me and I didn't mind it at all!

As a result of having a supportive family, I was encouraged to take vocal lessons to sharpen my craft and to participate in plays and any other performing arts outlets that allowed me to express my musical and writing aspirations. As time progressed, my musical journey eventually led me to Columbia College of Chicago where I began my music business studies. This decision to attend Columbia College and study the business of music opened my eyes to a world of endless possibilities. It was in this environment I learned the importance of balancing both the art and the business of music. Two of the proudest moments during my college experience, aside from graduating with a BA degree, was 1) receiving a heartfelt compliment from Grammy and Stellar Award winning producer, Donald Lawrence, in which he stated, "Sherry you are a treat to watch and hear!” after attending a live performance of mine; and 2) independently releasing my first recording project entitled "Seasons" in June 2006. From all of these various experiences I learned the true biblical principle and meaning of walking by faith and not by sight!

Post-graduation, I began applying what I learned in the classroom. The Sherry Amour brand began to grow as the show bookings around the Chicagoland area became frequent. The opportunities included singing at the world renowned UniverSoul Circus; singing the National Anthem at the United Center for the All Star-Chicagoland basketball game; showcasing on a nationwide Coca-Cola sponsored tour; and singing on Chicagoland's WGN morning news show.

Sadly, the momentum of performing around the Chicagoland area came to a halt and life began to happen! I was on a search to find my next steps with taking my music career to the next level, but felt unsuccessful with various attempts in trying to release new music that I had written and recorded. After experiencing failed plans and goals, broken relationships and feeling the exact same sentiments of Langston Hughes' poem "A Dream Deferred", F.E.A.R settled in and unfortunately became my place of comfort.

Unsure of my next moves, I became inspired to connect back to my “musical roots”. In short, after facing the unexpected challenges of life and facing my fears, I was inspired to release my first ever online music series entitled “Back To The Music” via my YouTube Channel! In this series I am paying homage to some of the music industry’s most iconic artists such as Whitney Houston, Stevie Wonder, Anita Baker and more. With this visual tributary project, I chose to pay homage through the art forms of narrative writing, storytelling, live musical performances and creative impersonations of each artist’s memorable album cover. Feel free to check it out! =)

“Ok, So What’s next?”

Now that we’ve taken a trip down memory lane together, I am ready to get back to the music with recording and releasing NEW original Sherry Amour music with the world and I would love your support and partnership on this endeavor! Since my last recording project, “Seasons”, I now have 9 years worth of stories and life experiences that influence this new music that's bubbling over in my soul -- I can not wait to share it with the world!

For the last decade, I have diligently served in the music community as a professional in various capacities, amongst various networks. Accordingly, I have learned that nothing can get accomplished without a strong base of supporters -- this is where you come in! My team and I are striving to release my forthcoming recording project, entitled “Mirror, Mirror.” In order to achieve this goal, we are seeking to raise $8,000 in 30 days! The pressure is on! And guess what? Pressure makes diamonds!

"Where's this money going?"

Every dollar raised during this campaign will go towards production, recording, mixing, and marketing costs. Your support and donation will help make music history, because collectively we’re contributing to the music community that surrounds us everyday in a positive way.

The REWARDS!

In exchange for your donations my team and I have developed some cool rewards that we know you’ll enjoy! Be sure to check them out to your right! I send many thank-yous for your time and contribution! You could have chosen to give your money to another cause, but you chose to invest in my “Mirror, Mirror” recording project and I do not take that for granted! I thank you from the bottom of my heart!!

So What is "Mirror, Mirror" All About?

I'm glad you asked! Without sharing all the goods now, the concept behind the album reminds us that we as humans are much more alike than we are different. From our flaws and all, we experience the joys and pains of life and love; and I look forward to us both looking in the mirrors of our hearts together, to discover self love through the eyes of one another.

Musically Yours,

Sherry Amour

Risks and challenges

One of the possible challenges we may face is the timing of the album release and our estimated delivery dates. I want you to know that we are working with an extremely talented and dedicated team to ensure that every reward is delivered promptly. Since communication is key, we ensure you that we will keep you posted if anything changes or is delayed along the way!
