Aspiring Akron teen singer talks dreams, gigs and the road ahead: Romona's Kids
AKRON, OH (WOIO) - A local teen has her eye on a performing arts career.
Serrin Joy Scrutchings grew up singing because her parents were music directors at church.
"I've always been at church rehearsal and at choir rehearsal and as soon as I was old enough to start singing for myself I just joined in and it's something I've always done," said Serrin.
"Every time I'm going through a hard time, music just gets me through it, " said Serrin. "I listen to music and I get happy, I sing and I get happy and it's just something that i know i want to do."
"I did the Burning Bush Church talent show last year, I've done talent shows around the city, I just sang at the Apache Cafe in midtown Atlanta, I'm just working my way around."
Serrin is a senior in the Akron School for the Arts program at Firestone CLC. She hopes to attend the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York City.
