Come enjoy your lunch hour listening to local up-and-coming Memphis artists and the stories behind their music! This month's Lunch & Listen will feature pop singer-songwriter and dancer LaShonté Anderson. About LaShonté: LaShonté Anderson was born in Nashville and raised in Memphis, TN. She began singing at 3, dancing at 4 and rapping at 7 with an ultimate love for entertaining. This young lady has always been the personification of the arts. Her voice can move mountains while her body seems to put you in a trance and feet move like water. Now, blossoming into her queendom, she sets out on a journey to make her mark in music. This girl has never seen a ceiling or been limited by a box. From singing on a Diet Coke commercial with Taylor Swift, to becoming an Emerging Star under the Consortium MMT, to headlining her own tour in China; this future phenomenon is well on her way. She's worked with some of the biggest stars, but she has a movement of her own. LaShonté has mentored over 5000 kids in her hometown and strives to inspire others to become the best versions of themselves, overcoming any obstacles that may get in their way. Her "let nothing stop me" attitude has granted her opportunities to express her unique style all over the world. She moves like an unstoppable train and her explosiveness cannot be contained! LaShonté is currently recording her second album and planning another international tour. After recently releasing her first single, Karma, and music video, her fans are excited to see what comes next. This new album will feature songs of all genres, show range like you've never heard her before, and visuals that are going to blow you away. Look out for this upcoming star.
