When she was 4 years old, she was involved in a golf cart accident, fracturing her skull. Luckily, she recovered and found her passion through singing.
At age 11, Chloe was a contestant on America’s Got Talent, eventually becoming a semi-finalist. When she was 12, she co-starred with country singer Billy Dean in The Toy Shoppe, a Kenny Roger’s Christmas production. Currently, her songs are available on Spotify and iTunes. You’ll get to hear her songs in person at the Bands on the Blackwater concert series.
