Adia first performed at the age of six or seven at Footlite Musicals summer camp as Ancestor Meng in Mulan and at Ben Davis Performing Arts Center as Kate in Annie. This all lead her to tour the country playing the iconic role of Annie. 

During the tour, Adia played the role of Pepper and Annie. The tour lasted one year with 310 shows in 32 cities with Martin Charnin directing the production. She loved being part of the tour. “It was an honor playing the title role of Annie 38 years after the first production on Broadway” says Adia. She said, she was blessed to have been picked to play these roles. “When I was on stage playing Annie, I had a real connection with her character and with Daddy Warbucks” says Adia.

She will be performing in Nashville this June during CMA week if you would like to catch one of her performances. She loves to be able to perform at so many places, this lets her be herself, and singing lets her express the emotional side of the song.

She puts a great deal of time in sharpening her crafts to help her realize her dreams. This summer she will be participating in a summer theater camp in July, and then she will be traveling out of town for dance nationals.

Like many young people growing up, she too was apart of musicals in school as a kindergartner, along with some talent shows. “My first real performance was on stage at a talent show in Tuscaloosa when I was eight years old. I played guitar and sang some Bob Dylan” says Sadie.

Baylee Sullivan

Baylee Sullivan at stars2come





Baylee is one remarkable artist. She has a very soothing and soft voice, and she uses it very effectively. She is very much like Deana Carter. Baylee is an artist that has star quality in every song she sings. It is her understanding of the song she is singing that gives her this edge. Anyone can get up and sing words, but it is the person who understands those words that becomes the star. Baylee is just such a person, you can hear it in each and every word. This is another trait that Baylee has that is similar to Deana. When they sing, they sing the words like each, is the last they will ever say. Both Deana and Baylee give powerful meaning to the songs they sing, every-time!

It is hard to believe as amazing as Baylee is, she really has not been out singing very much at all until recently. Bernard Porter in Nashville helped get her first public performance singing at the Opry Mills Mall. Baylee says looking back it was not her best performance, but it was a great experience.

Baylee’s most favorite place is New Orleans. She was so very happy when she was able to perform for Apple Barrel in New Orleans. This was an amazing performance and experience for her being able to sing where she loves. “The whole city always gives me a good vibe and makes me want to sing my heart out! ” says Baylee.

One of Baylee’s favorite artists she likes to cover is, Julie Roberts. Baylee feels Julie’s music and her style are much alike.

Baylee has just recently gotten out of her comfort zone to where she can put on a good performance without being so nervous. She is enjoying singing and talking to the people. Baylee says she usually never stops singing or talking, so it is a lot of fun for her.

Most up coming artists have a goal to become a star. Baylee also has this desire, but she would like to explore the simple side of life. “I’ve always wanted to be a teacher”, Baylee says. She believes with both careers she can help and inspire people. For Baylee if she had to pick one goal it would be to help and inspire people to be who they are.

Writing songs is a must for artists, and Baylee is putting her best efforts toward writing herself. She has written four or five songs, and has already begun recording them. She takes inspiration from good times and hard times, or whatever comes to mind she feels would be good to write about. One of the songs Baylee wrote is called, End of Time. This is a love song and it demonstrates the creativity Baylee has for music. This is a song that I can expect to hear when I turn on the radio. Her talent for delivering a song is so great, no one would ever know when listening to End of Time, that she is thirteen years old.

When Baylee is behind the mic she is serious about what she is doing, but she’s really just a silly energetic person having fun. She likes to laugh and be with her friends, but she is happiest when she is singing. Baylee loves when she is able to put a smile on someone’s face when she sings. She is very thankful to her parents for their support and love. Baylee gives all the glory to God for the gift she has received.

Baylee does have a great gift and she will be making people happy for a longtime to come with that gift. She has the talent that can take her to the end of time. A voice like her’s does not come a long everyday. Music was created for a person like Baylee. She is someone who needs to be on your list of people to see. Baylee will be having more performances soon at the Apple Barrel in New Orleans, this would be an excellent time to see this fabulous new star on the rise.

End of Time


Jordyn Pepper

Jordyn Pepper




Jordyn is an artist with a lot of  character and a unique voice that will take her a long way in music. It is always great to be somewhere and hear an artist sing, and the first thing you think is, wow, who is that? That is what you get with Jordyn. There is more to singing and being an artist than just belting out words, there has to be something in the artist to bring the song to life and make the listener be apart of it and that is what Jordyn does with all of that character and wonderful personality. All of these things about Jordyn, the personality the character all helps to add depth to her songs and keeps you listening.

It was  Jordyn’s mom that got her started singing. Whenever Jordyn would be singing around the house her mom would say you are a diamond in the rough. At the time Jordyn’s mom was the praise and worship leader of their church and would encourage her to sing with the praise team and sing solos as much as possible. She was eight years old when she started singing at church and can remember her first time very well. She said she could not believe she volunteered to do a solo because she was the shyest kid ever and did not like drawing attention to herself, so getting on stage was a big deal for her. However after she got up there and sang she fell in love with being behind the mic and up on the stage and she has not looked back since.

Over the years Jordyn says that her inspiration for singing has changed, when she first showed up in Nashville her inspirations were Sugarland and Jennifer Nettles. Once she became part of PCG Nashville they helped her figure out who she was as an artist and now her inspirations are more to the order of Dixie Chicks, Zac Brown Band, Sons of Fathers, The Wild Feathers and Patty Griffin. Some of the songs from these great artists has allowed her to see first hand how the melodies and lyrics have changed her mood and lifted her up in hard times. Jordyn wants to do the same with her music. She hopes to inspire people to go chase their dreams and not be afraid.

Jordyn is someone who is very critical of herself and always feels there is room for improvement. She is always thinking of how she can make her next performance better. She says anytime you perform and you are connecting with the audience you are having a great performance. No matter the performance she always likes the adrenaline rush right before she performs. She hopes to one day to touch the hearts of 50,000 people all in one room in one night. There is no doubt that she will touch those hearts.

In the past Jordyn was part of some  contests with her church denomination in Colorado that were statewide, and won a silver metal which she still has.

Many artists when they are out performing seem to have a particular artist that they prefer to cover, but Jordyn is not like that, if a song speaks to her then she will sing it. One song that she does like to sing is Drops of Jupiter by Train it is one of those songs that speaks to her. When she sings it, it always feels like it is the very first time even though she has sung it many times. This is one song that never gets old and what she calls a classic.

Jordyn is just really getting started with songwriting, but she has written a really awesome song that will be her first single called, “1862”. She got the idea for this song while watching the movie “Lincoln”. While watching the movie she was just strumming around on her guitar and came up with a cute melody. Then all of a sudden the words PA 1862 came up in the subtitles so she started singing “1862 and I hear a boom” to her melody. When Jordyn writes she says she usually writes toward the dark deep haunting songs, but this was more upbeat, so she thought it would make a great campfire song, almost like a haunting Ghost story. Jordyn had a hard time finishing the song and when she went to a songwriters session with Mike Marcum one of the people she co-writes with, and brought it up to them and as soon as they heard the song they said it was awesome and for sure a Bluebird song. So it went being from her little campfire song to her first single.

Jordyn is really an amazing person with so many great interests besides music like, dirt bikes, snowboarding, long boarding, and rock climbing. It is all of these things that help make up who she is as an artist. It is in her nature to take risks, and do things a little different and this is what in the end that makes a true artist and one that will stand the test of time. Jordyn has the right attitude and drive to make her way in music, and make all her dreams come true. She keeps evolving as an artist which many fail to do. Jordyn will someday warm the hearts of those 50,000 people, plus many more. Janis Joplin was a little different with her music and who she was and people everywhere came to love her and they will do the same again with Jordyn Pepper.
