Finalist - Shari Clarke
Shari Clarke Moved to Macon, Georgia in 2007 for school. She started at Wesleyan College and transferred to Mercer University in 2010. After graduation, she planned to attend law school but things didn’t go as smoothly as she hoped. After some soul searching, she decided that music was what made her truly happy. Singing since the age of 6, she saw the Macon Music Competition as a way to reach for her goals. To Shari, music is more than just simply sound. Music is a reason for living and an opportunity to share experiences and gifts with the world.
Listen to her music here.
