Linda has been singing since she was six years old. She started performing in church and continued to perform at events throughout her grade school, high school and college years. After college, Linda joined her first band. She went on to sing the National Anthem at St. Louis sporting events and on big stages regionally in front of 18,000+.
Linda has had no formal vocal training. Born the last of six children in a big family, Linda has a natural, God-given talent. Her brother Tommy -- who was born five years before Linda -- is autistic and does not speak. Inspired by her brother's love of the sound of music but inability to speak, Linda
has learned to not take her voice for granted. She believe in supporting the causes she supports and has performed at many
charitable events, including an Autism Awareness event at the Kemp Auto
Museum in 2011.
Linda has performed
with several well-known artists including Christina Aguilera, Live,
Smash Mouth, Sugar Ray, KC and the Sunshine Band, Blue Oyster Cult, Dr.
Hook, and Tone Loc.
Linda has performed in several states, including California, Nevada, New York, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Oklahoma and Missouri.
Linda works hard and plays hard ... but despite her professional success, her biggest and best quality is her heart. She's a very caring, sensitive human being who volunteers to help missing men, women and children gain national media coverage in hopes that they can eventually be reunited with their loved ones. Linda also volunteers to help animals in need, saving them from the streets and "high-kill" animal control facilities by finding them rescues or new homes. Linda puts in countless hours each week specifically to rescue stray dogs and has adopted a few four-legged friends of her own.
Linda was named one of 3 "Outstanding Missourians" by the Missouri Jaycees in 2009 for her professional and community achievements. Linda was named one of Scottrade's outstanding women, receiving a St. Louis YWCA Leadership Award in 2004.
