Family, Music and Inspiration: THE SHELTONS

 

The saying ‘there is beauty in the struggle’ in an understatement when it comes to the young, talented, dynamic group The Sheltons.

The self-taught instrumental abilities, effortless harmony and positive inspiration delivers a message of hope and family values to all who listen.   The Sheltons consist of 5 members, all brothers and sisters ranging in age from 14-20. David Jr, Angelique, Shilah, Thaddeus, and Xavier Shelton are the epitome of young people inspiring others to focus on their dreams and to wholly trust in God.

Parents, David and Yevette Shelton, made a huge move from Detroit to the Atlanta area in 2008 with their 5 children. All of his life, David had an undying love of music, teaching himself to play multiple instruments. He was completely unaware that his musical talents and determination was all part of God’s bigger plan that would later manifest into greatness.

A few years ago, the Shelton family faced a spiral of storms. David and Yevette divorced and David became a single father. Shortly after this happened, David lost his job. To make matters worse, he and his children were the victims of a total loss house fire resulting in them being homeless. Having to live in shelters, cars, hotels, and with family and friends, David prayed and pleaded with God to grant him a new start. In the midst of these tragedies, the triumph would spark and a transparent display of God’s promise would begin.

The Sheltons, under the teachings of their mentor and father, David Shelton, are jumping into the Gospel scene and ready to make their mark in the industry. These 5 very inspirational young people want to encourage others to stand firm on Gods promises. They want to remind you to build your foundation on faith, family, hard work, dedication, and to always wait on and follow the instructions of All Mighty God, trusting and believing that storms do pass, mountains are moveable, and giants do fall!!
