Shirley, a Cleveland native is known for her beauty, vocal ability, and because of her truly inspirational story. The 30 something endured a tumultuous childhood and even lived through a suicide attempt. "Any one of those issues could have destroyed me, but I'm a survivor!" she insists. When she was six, her foster mother saw that she had an amazing musical gift, and encouraged her to sing in church. She studied acting and musical theater at the East Cleveland Theater. Shirley also enrolled into the Cleveland School of the Arts, which she attended from fourth grade until high school graduation. As a classically trained vocalist, she was accepted into Morgan State University, where she toured the world with the school's choir.

In 2001 Shirley joined Group TherAPy (previously AJB & AP), a gospel-influenced troupe under the direction of Anthony Brown. The group often performed as background singers for a wide range of artists, from Gospel greats like Donnie McClurkin, Maurette Brown-Clark, and Donald Lawrence, to R&B superstars like Kelly Price, Anthony Hamilton, and Stevie Wonder. Anthony Brown & Group TherAPy released their self-titled debut album, on August 21, 2012. It debuted at #3 on Billboard Gospel charts. The album's lead single "Testimony," is the longest running gospel radio single on Billboard. The group's sophomore album "Everyday Jesus," was recorded live in Baltimore, Md with almost 4,000 people in attendance. Released in July 2015, "Everyday Jesus" debuted at #1 on multiple billboard charts and remained at #1 for several weeks. The Grammy-Nominated lead single "Worth" is currently #1 on the Billboard Gospel Radio Airplay chart.
