Who is Bree Shannon?
Bree Shannon, also know affectionately as Bretina, is a native of Atlanta, GA who started dancing at the age of six and singing and performing in musicals at the age of twelve. She was rooted in the church and grew up singing in the choir and leading solos, 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, and she took it.
She worked for Carnival Cruise Lines as a featured vocalist and dancer for over a decade, traveling the world and doing what she loves. 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 own company, Breezway Entertainment, LLC. She is currently a vocal and performance coach at Music Authority in Cumming, Ga, an acting teacher at the Atlanta Workshop Players Performing Arts School, and the founding drama teacher for a new charter school in the Atlanta area called Atlanta SMART Academy. She also performs with local bands and different music projects and productions around the city.
Entertaining, coaching and singing to bring a smile to your soul....it's Bree Shannon!!!
