SGM Radio: How did you begin your career in Christian music?
Sharron: Once I realized and accepted the call in my life I began to follow [that call]; I guess about 20 years now. I sing what comes to my heart.

SGM Radio: What is the title of your most recent recording?
Sharron: Don't Stop Believing is my latest project. It was recorded in Nashville.

SGM Radio: What is your most favorite song off of the project and why?
Sharron: “Why Can't We” by the Isaacs. The song speaks for itself.

SGM Radio: Do you have a local church that you attend?
Sharron: Yes, when not on the road I attend The World of Faith Ministries in Macon, GA. I am involved as much as I can be but being full time makes it difficult.

SGM Radio: What has been the most entertaining moment of your career?
Sharron: Oh I've had plenty of those! I guess when my heel got stuck on the '70's shag carpet in the church I was ministering in and I hit the floor, but didn't miss a lick in my song. I just popped back up and kept on singing!

SGM Radio: What has been the most challenging moment of your career?
Sharron: Ministering just two weeks after I lost my mother, that was tough.

SGM Radio: Christians have a lot to be thankful for as they serve the Lord. What are you most thankful for in your life?
Sharron: That by His grace and mercy He has kept me, and I feel honored that He found something in me that He can use.
