About Chevel Shepherd
At just 16 years old, Chevel constantly impresses people with her powerful voice given her age and petite stature. She was raised on country music and the outdoors – often doing crafts, feeding the animals, and fixing up cars with her dad. Since Chevel was eight, she has been singing in town wherever she can, but now she’s excited about bigger musical opportunities.
