REED shannon

I had the privilege to meet and witness the awesome talent of 13yr old Reed Shannon. He is truly a blessed young man raised by parents who know that prayer makes a difference. Reed has just been casted for major roles in the national tour of “Motown the Musical.” I was so amazed by this young mans talent and humbleness that I invited him to the station for an interview. Read more about Reed and listen to the great interview.

He is truly a young man to watch!

Reed LoRenzo Shannon has trained at the North Carolina Theatre and dreamed of becoming a professional singer, actor, and dancer since he was four years old. He has performed roles in NC Theatre Conservatory Master Summer Theatre Arts School’s productions of “In the Heights” (2013 – Sonny) and “Who’s Tommy” (2012 – Youngest Tommy). His first appearance on the main stage in Raleigh was in “Oliver!” (2012 – Workhouse Boy). This actor’s dreams have come true! He begins his professional career in the cast of “Les Misérable” at Raleigh Memorial Auditorium (2014 – Gavroche), and he has been cast in the First National Tour of Broadway’s “Motown the Musical” (Young Michael Jackson/Young Berry Gordy/Young Stevie Wonder), opening at Chicago’s Oriental Theatre in May 2014. A seventh grade student who has been educated in the Wake County (NC) public school system, Reed spends his free time reading, singing, instagramming, singing, facetiming, singing, doing homework {hmm}, and preparing to become the youngest anchor ever on Saturday Night Live. He is an avid traveler who learned the basics of boating and golfing in a four week sleep away summer camp at the age of 9; and spent three weeks in China, at the age of 12, immersed in a language and culture youth summer camp. Reed is a member of Baptist Grove Church in Raleigh, where he sings in the choir. In addition to his career in the arts, after earning a college degree in fine arts, Reed LoRenzo Shannon plans to serve America as an officer in the United States Army.
