Sherrill's Tribute Shows are not "plays". Rather she simulates what it is like or what it would have been like to see that artist in concert. She accurately portrays each artist through authentically duplicating their costuming, hair and make-up and vocals. She sings every song in the key and style it was recorded in. She sings the songs "right" as they were originally recorded and does not put her own "twist" on them. This way the songs sound right to the ear and this really appeals to the audience.
She can either perform solo with recorded music or with any band. She has bands located around the country regionally to accommodate most venues.
Sherrill is the consummate entertainer and is expert at involving the audience in her show. She is comedic and quick witted and plays off of what the audience brings her. This makes every show different because every audience is different. She has that charisma to make each and every person in the audience feel that she is talking or singing just to them. All audience members compliment her on her ability to really entertain.
Her music transcends age and generations. She says, "I sing songs that mean something to me and I put all of the feeling into them that I can. For if I do not feel the song I cannot make my audience feel the song". She performs all #1 platinum hits. All of the music is familiar and many are sing-along songs.
Sherrill 'brings fun to life'! From as far back as she can remember, Sherrill knew her calling in life was to be a singer/entertainer. Sherrill began singing as a child in the Midwest where she was raised. She performed in school plays and sang in the church. At the age of 12 she put her first band together, the "Neighborhood Hopefuls" as she recalls. Later she began to perform professionally in clubs and all types of venues. She is blessed to be able to work full-time at her music as she says, "it is a good thing that I can sing because I would hate to have to really work for a living!" Sherrill is a fulltime, pro entertainer and has been the lead singer of a band all of her life. She can perform solo or with her band or a local band provided by the venue. Sherrill currently calls Dallas, Texas her home but travels worldwide.
