Leighann shares her story of pain and healing in the most beautiful way. Soulful, warm, and timeless.
Leighann, welcome to VQS! Tell us a little bit about you and your music.
I’ve been singing for as long as I can remember. Music is my way of communicating and my therapy. I fell in love with artists like Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, LeAnn Rimes, and Kenny Rogers at a young age. They inspired me to want to sing emotional songs with powerhouse vocals and a theatrical delivery. Country music always spoke to me in a way I could never describe. I fell in love with it’s storytelling and the sense of community it always seemed to be surrounded by. Growing up it became apparent to me that I needed to be a country singer. My soul wouldn’t settle for anything less. Now, here I am, performing and writing the music that raised me!
