Olivia loves to perform - whether it be dancing, singing or acting - and started performing on stage at the young age of 4. She was inspired to play music at an early age from musically inclined family members, and was taught to play guitar by her father. She performed her very first solo at Many Mini Musicians inaugural Summer Concert in 2018 and has continued her involvement with the non-profit since. She organized a fundraiser, “Young Stars and Guitars” after Hurricane Michael, when she was just 11 years old, which raised nearly $5000 for the Gulf Coast Children’s Advocacy Center. Now, as a 13-year old, entering 8th grade, Olivia is excited to share her love of music with like-minded youth as part of the youth advisory board.
