Local Aspiring Singer

by Christa Lollis

Lufkin may soon have it's own famous musician. Kendall Beard has been singing since she was a little girl but her dream is now becoming a reality. After overcoming obstacles in her life such as dyslexia she will be graduating from UT Austin in December and hopes her music career will take off. She knew she wanted to go to college and while there she realized just how much she loved music. Now, she's not sure where she would be without it. "It's very therapeutic. It gives me time to myself which is also why I love it and I love writing. It's just a big stress reliever. It kind of releases endorphins," she told KTRE. Kendall performed at Beards Jewelers tonight but hopes one day she'll be performing in huge arenas.
