She entered the American Fine Art Festival (AFAF) Golden Voices of America 2015 International Vocal Competition and was awarded third place in both the classical category and musical theater category in the 9 to 10-year-old group, performing four songs. Her performance earned her a spot in the AFAF-organized Winner’s Concert at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall on Dec. 13 with singers ages 9 to 20-plus from all over the world. Huge congrats to Shayla!
