Bree Shannon, also known affectionately as Bretina, is a native of Atlanta, GA who started her journey in entertainment at the young age of six . She was rooted in the church and grew up singing in the choir and leading solos. All of which helped shape her vocal style and abilities. She attended Florida State University, but completed and obtained her B.A. degree in Industrial Engineering Technology at Southern Polytechnic State University. After working in Corporate America and being out of the entertainment arena for over 13 years, an unexpected layoff became a window of opportunity for her to pursue her passion for performing and entertaining.
She began working for Carnival Cruise Lines as a featured vocalist and dancer for over a decade. During that time she got to experience traveling the world and doing what she loves in a way she never had before.
She is also a professional TV, film, commercial, and voice-over talent and a member of the Screen Actor’s Guild and Actor’s Equity Association with several credits to her name. Performing on stage for a live audience is her greatest passion. She accredits her soulful tone, vocal diversity, and the spirit in which she performs to her love for Christ and her life experiences.
Upon leaving the cruise industry, Bree started her company, Breezway Entertainment, LLC and opened B Sharp Coaching Studios, a studio dedicated to coaching, training and teaching vocal and performance skills to anyone with the heart and passion to perform. Outside of her business, she teaches a Triple Threat class at the Atlanta Workshop Players Performing Arts School, performs with local and corporate bands, and does different music projects and productions around the city of Atlanta.
