At the age of 4, SherĂ©e Fitzgerald was gripped by a passion to sing. â€śSinging touched me,â€ť she says. â€śI felt something and couldnâ€™t let go.â€ť
But early on, her passion for music far exceeded her ability. A hearing impairment prevented her form hearing high frequency sounds, those necessary for diction and speech development. As a result, SherĂ©e spoke with a lisp that would later improve but never fully disappear.
Some of her music teachers discouraged her from continuing, assuming she wasnâ€™t taking their lessons seriously. Others felt she would never develop the skills necessary to compensate for her hearing loss.
But as a student at BYU, SherĂ©e continued to improve her musical talent. For three years she toured the world with the Young Ambassadors and the A Capella Choir while studying childhood development.
Since graduating, SherĂ©e has taught elementary school and private music lessons. She has also pursued a career in professional music production. After the release of her most recent album, What Matters Most, SherĂ©e was nominated for â€śBest Inspirational Song of the Yearâ€ť at the 2001 Pearls Awards, sponsored by the Faith Center Music Association.
For SherĂ©e the nomination was proof that her passion was great enough to overcome the obstacle of hearing loss. It also represented the fulfillment of her lifelong desire to lift others through music.
â€śItâ€™s important that I not do music for my sake,â€ť she says. â€śI want to do music for the sake of sharing something musically and spiritually uplifting â€“ I want to share music with a message.â€ť
