Someone you should know- My email interview with Megan Chase



Megan has loved music all her life and began singing at a very young age. When she was younger, she often performed at her grandparent Salvation Army Church. Her parents have photos and videos of her singing for the church services when she was only 3 years old. From that point on, just about everyone in Megan's family knew that she would want to be involved in the music industry. Megan began posting YouTube videos in 2011. She began developing a small fan base who called themselves Chasers. With time her fan base continued to grow and she now has over 21,000 views on YouTube.

Currently, Megan is recording her very first EP which will be released in August of this year. She has become a student ambassador for Defeat The Label, which is an organization that is aimed to put an end to bullying. She absolutely loves working with Defeat The Label and enjoys sharing how we can put an end to bullying in our schools.

She will be performing at The VITY Tour ATL on June 21st and The Middletown, DE Peach Festival on August 16th at 11:45 a.m. More show date and details will be announced as she's added to the line ups.
