is a solo artist under Core Contents Media. She was originally supposed to debut as a member of 5dolls.
Instead, according to the company, she will finish her three-year trainee period and debut as a solo artist in May 2014
. So get pumped. Here's who she be:
Full name: Shannon Arrum Williams (섀넌 아룸 윌리엄스)
Ethnicity: Welsh-Korean (father and mother, respectively)
Birthdate: May 26th, 1998 (age 15)
Birthplace: London, England
Height: 165cmHumble Beginnings - Star King
11-year old Shannon singing "A Whole New World" with Shinee's Onew.Oh, hey, dat sum MV
Here at 14 years old with Ahreum (ex-T-ara) and Gunji (Gavy NJ). Solid, solid.Shit Just Got Real - Hidden Singer 2
Yeah... If you watch just ONE clip, make sure it's the Beyonce one... the one above, the last one.Pics (from various recent-ish years...)
Well then, this is a bit early, so let me explain. I've been digging Shannon for a while. I mostly knew her from the random appearances in T-ara Overlord Dani's Instagram
as the Half-Korean girl with an adorable British accent. Her Instagram
and Dani's were full of cute and dorky pics and videos of the girls
doing random goofy shit. (A lot of it has since been removed, though...)
Then I got this idea of a sort of a general "trainee" thread, to show some love to Shannon, Jennie Kim, Dani and others yet to make a proper debut.
Now, I had heard Shannon's singing before, in some random clips and in the MV she was in with Ahreum and Gunji. I thought she was a pretty decent, solid singer, especially for her age. Then this Hidden Singer thing happened. Holy smokes, what an improvement she has made in a couple of years. Dat Beyonce clip. And mind you, this girl is still only fifteen.
Since I had mostly Shannon in mind for the trainee thread anyway and now they've announced her debut already, I just decided, fuck it... she gets her own thread. Don't let me down, now, girl.
