PA is the 5th state I’ve lived in and I LOVE it! I recently bought my first home with my husband and we’re living happily ever after there with our furry kids (Boston Terrier mixes) Misha and Olive.
Education: I’m for it! Seriously…I graduated from William Woods University (never heard of it…right?). It’s known for its Equestrian Science (ponies!) program…so it makes sense that I went there to study Communications and Theatre. I also like ponies!
Hobbies: Other than music and ponies, I’m passionate about food. I love eating it, cooking it, watching others cook it…and don’t even mind when people constantly post pictures of food on facebook/instagram.
Occupation: Guess…just guess…stumped? I play awesome music for you on FM97! I love music and always have. I secretly wish that I’d had insane stage parents that pushed me into being a huge singing/acting sensation…oh well. (You may occasionally hear one of my cartoon voices on an educational app or elsewhere!)
Celeb I'd Like to Meet: Chelsea Handler...although she hates redheads, she has a soft spot for "nuggets" and a t 4' 8'' I just might qualify!

So now it's official, Beyonce did not sing live...
An inaugural official tells CNN: "She did not sing live. Because she didn't have time to rehearse with the Marine Band, she decided to use her recording with the Marine Band. It was all Beyoncé. She's actually a very good live singer.''
A source tells the NY Post, “Pavarotti has done it! It was freezing out and if she messed up just one note that would have been the story. She did sing. She just used a track.”
Beyonce is not the first and CERTAINLY not the only to lip sync at a big event...

Here are just SOME of the more notable performances...
Jennifer Hudson and Faith Hill reportedly sang along to prerecorded renditions during their performances at the 2009 Super Bowl.
Cold temperatures forced Cellist Yo-Yo Ma and violinist Itzhak Perlman to mime along to a
prerecording during President Barack Obama's first inauguration four years ago
Luciano Pavarotti lip-synced his performance at the opening ceremony of the 2006 Winter Games.
Whitney Houston is believed to have lip-synced her impressive rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner" at the 1991 Super Bowl. Her spokesperson at the time said she was singing, but her mic was turned off so viewers heard a prerecorded track.
Kanye West has been accused of lip-syncing on "American Idol" and "Saturday Night Live," though the artist has attributed issues to technical difficulties.
Ashlee Simpson was caught lip-syncing on "Saturday Night Live" in 2004.
Madonna was accused of lip-syncing during the Super Bowl halftime show in 2009. But in all fairness, she was dancing around quite a bit.
Britney Spears has been known to lip-sync in order to keep up with her intricate and
fast-paced dance routines. The pop star got caught in the act on her "Circus" tour in 2009.
