Yes, I sing live at churches and assembly halls. I love to sing. It makes me feel my personal connection with God, knowing I'm using a gift given by him. I have a lot of special moments and memories of performances. I was the 2000 USA Talent Search Overall Winner, I was the runner-up in the 2000 Coca-Cola True Talent Artist Search held at the BET Black Hall in Washington, D.C., and the most noted learning experience of all was the 2004 American Idol Auditions. I didn't win, but what an experience!!!!!!
I love Gospel and R&B, but that is not all. I am open to all types of music. I listen to the message within the music.CeCe Winans and Yolanda Adams as well as many others have influenced me throughout the years.

MANAGER'S ALBUM REVIEW -
Shyrita's album targets the youth and anyone that "truly" loves the Lord who encontered many pains and problems in the church. In my opinion, Shyrita brings out the things that many people are afraid to talk about in their music. Alot of people were shocked at some of the things she sang about. -Songs like "Only God Can Heal" and "In Your Eyes" deals with the hurt she endured while trying to do the work God set for her to do. -Songs like "Your Praise" and "He said Go" deals with what she went through accepting Gods will for her to use her gift for Him. -And songs like "Jesus" and "My Best Friend" express triumph through her trials.We pray that her music touches every soul that listens and shows them a peace like no other.
