Music is a passion for Ms. Shackleford. She sang in church choirs from the age of six. During her elementary and high school years, she participated in school choirs, where she was often one of the featured soloists, and she played clarinet in the concert and marching bands. Ms. Shackleford received her classical training in voice while on music scholarship during her college years at AAMU. She has sung in several groups and choirs over the years to include the Dr. Horace Carney Chorale, CEADS of Joy, the Nell Lane Bradford Legacy Choir, and the Huntsville Community Chorus. In recent years, she released an EP of Christian music titled SING UNTO THE LORD. After hearing about several suicides of bullied young people, Ms. Shackleford felt led to release a single she
had written titled Remember. Ms. Shackleford has also enjoyed performing on stage. She was a chorus member in the local production of the opera The Ballad of Baby Doe. She played
the roles of Jo Ann, one of the Sweethearts, and was part of the ensemble in a local production of Dreamgirls. Ms. Shackleford was also cast as an Emerald City Citizen and a Crow in a local production of the Wiz. Ms. Shackleford has been interested in art since childhood. She has had no formal education in art but has taken several community courses. The most impactful course was one taught by Don Howard, a prominent artist in Huntsville, Alabama. Ms. Shackleford has one open edition print titled May I go, too? that is currently available at the Huntsville Revisited Museum. Ms. Shackleford regards her talents as gifts from God.  She knows that without God she can do nothing, and He is worthy of all praise, glory, and honor!
