A star was born on July 28, 1990. This star is none other than Brittney LaShay Farmer who is also known by stage name, Shae Harmony. Shae Harmony's sultry voice and demanding presence captivates the hearts and minds of listeners. Shae Harmony hails from Snow Hill, North Carolina and has been entertaining masses locally with her soulful voice since the age of 8 in her church United Gospel Outreach.

Looking to expand her audience to the national music scene, Shae Harmony dreams of making it big and signing with a renowned record label.
Shae Harmony doesn't have a target audience because she wants her music to reach everyone. She considers her genre to be "good music" and recently discovered a new passion: songwriting. Shae Harmony hopes to inspire, influence, and empower through her own lyrics. When asked which icons most influenced her and ignited her desire to sing Shae Harmony responded, "Michael Jackson and Beyonce. Michael had music that brought people together, and that is my mission too. I love his music. Inspiring and fun. He was a trooper, who pushed through all the negativity critics said about him. Beyonce's strength, endurance, humbleness and powerhouse vocals. She inspires me to never give up, no matter the criticism!" Additionally, Shae Harmony wants to shift the negative portrayal of women in the entertainment industry to more positive images of success. She had this to say to women who are constantly engulfed by the industry's denigrating portrayal of females, "I want to show women that we can be CEO's, entrepreneurs, and so much more. We can be attractive with clothes on. Don't let the media discourage you!"
In her spare time she mentors middle school age girls and encourages them not to succumb to idea that women have to live up to the negative images shown on the media. Shae Harmony is very family oriented and humbly acknowledges that without the support and encouragement from her family and friends she wouldn't be where she is today! Other fun fact about the lovely Shae Harmony is that she loves roller coasters, traveling, dancing and acting. On the contrary, Shae Harmony has a huge fear of bugs and says they send her shivers down her spine. One thing is sure, Shae Harmony's powerhouse vocals will send shivers down your spine- shivers of ecstasy and ultimate satisfaction!
