About the artist

Not many just-turned 15-year olds are invited on stage by a legendary group like the Oak Ridge Boys to sing acapella. The captivated audience in Galveston’s prestigious Opry sat enraptured… then came thunderous applause and a standing ovation for Mary Sarah’s rendition of the 1961 Connie Frances hit, “Where the Boys Are,” a song that most artists of her tender age would not even attempt, much less, know.

At 12, Mary Sarah toured the U.S. for 6 months as a featured lead vocalist and dancer in Kidz Bop, a Razor & Tie Records and Vee Corporation production, produced by Michael Anderson in Los Angeles. This was an 18-song rock concert from Kidz Bop albums, which to date have racked up 7 Gold albums, with “kid-friendly” cover versions of hits. The experience from performing in front of 4-6,000 kids per show defined her stage presence and earned her national and global popularity.

After the Kidz Bop tour, Mary Sarah returned to Texas and began performing in local and regional Opry Theatres, Town Squares and Charity fundraisers.

Like many top country artists, Mary Sarah’s first performances were in church at age 8. One advantage of living in Texas is the presence of hundreds of country radio stations and numerous regional Opry Theaters and Mary Sarah has performed in almost all of them multiple times, paying tribute to her heroes – the legends of country music.

Mary Sarah is hosting a four part series for the 2011 season of “OPRY on the Square – Country Now and Then” in Sugarland Town Square. http://OpryontheSquare.com

A huge part of Mary Sarah’s story is her faith, love for her family, and charitable work; the foremost being The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), http://www.jdrf.org a cause very dear to her heart. Mary Sarah’s brother, Chris, battles this disease. Last fall she performed the National Anthem at the opening of The Walk To Cure Diabetes in Houston. “I want to be a voice for those who need one,” she told the Houston Post, which called her “an incredibly talented country singer/songwriter.” Mary Sarah also serves as a youth volunteer for The American Red Cross http://www.redcrossyouth.org

Mary Sarah has a love for traditional and contemporary country music and has recently written with Nashville hit songwriters, Tony Marty and Karen Staley.

The ISC, Inc. (International Songwriting Competition) Founder/Director, Candice Avery, announced May 11, 2011 that Mary Sarah has won Second Place in the TEEN CATEGORY, for her self-penned song “A New Crush,” which was chosen from 15,000 entrants, making this an extraordinary achievement. Candice and the judges applaud the skill and dedication to the craft of songwriting that this win has proven. http://www.songwritingcompetition.com/winners Mary Sarah previously won Runner-Up in the COUNTRY CATEGORY for her original, “One Time Around.”

Mary Sarah has also been awarded by Musicati Inventor/Co-developer, Troy Stacy, a $50,000 promotion package servicing 20,000 digital juke boxes throughout North America, beginning May 1, 2011 for her first CD titled, CRAZY GOOD, recorded at age 14. www.musicati.com

“It’s a journey that I am so blessed to take with my family and my fans. The feedback and encouragement on the internet is just as important to me as performing for a live audience,” says Mary Sarah.

So stay tuned. This 16-year-old showbiz “veteran” has already come a long way and she’s only just begun.

Lyrics

Dear Diary

VI
There’s so much to write about, today I’m gonna need another page
Cause this one is filling up
The boy I’ve been dreamin’ about, I think he just asked me on a date
Maybe we’ll fall in love

PCI
He said he’d meet me at the movies
You know that I can hardly wait

CI
So much to say
Dear diary he called me today, and finally
I felt butterflies inside of me, I was floating away
For the first time
I couldn’t speak, I was tongue tied
Could barely breathe, I was so shy
And it’s freaking me out, I cant let him see
This is just between you and me
Dear Diary, Dear Diary

VII
I’ve never been so nervous but I know that I gotta play it cool
He’s the cutest boy in school
Does he think I’m pretty, will he try and kiss me
At the end, what does he tell his friends

PCII
My head is spinnin’ from all this thinkin’
I just might need another pen



CII
So much to say
Dear diary he called me today, and finally
I felt butterflies inside of me, I was floating away
For the first time
I couldn’t speak, I was tongue tied
Could barely breathe, I was so shy
And it’s freaking me out, I cant let him see
This is just between you and me
Dear Diary


BRIDGE
I am holding it together, but I’m barely hanging on
Cause I know I’m falling harder with every beat of my heart
Yeah, yeah.


CIII
So much to say
Dear diary he called me today, and finally
I felt butterflies inside of me, I was floating away
For the first time
I couldn’t speak, I was tongue tied
Could barely breathe, I was so shy
And it’s freaking me out, I cant let him see
This is just between you and me
Dear Diary, Dear Diary, Dear Diary, Dear diary.
