(Artist) Shannon (섀넌)
« on: January 26, 2014, 07:24:26 PM »
Shannon (섀넌)



Twitter :: Instagram


Shannon 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: 165cm



Humble 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 training hard 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. :P

Shannon coming out tomorrow with a digital single "Remember You" that she recorded as duet with Jongkook (Speed).





If there's one thing I'm not too high on about this debut, it's the styling... I mean what the fuck? Even the Hidden Singer styling was pretty bad.

Is this the "British" look to them or something? :lol:







That's better.

Here's that new single! Shannon's got mad pipes, and it doesn't hurt that she's really pretty and cute and dorky and funny, and I looove her accent too.  She's got my attention for sure!

The official MV. People have been complaining how the choreo doesn't fit the song, but a "fitting" choreo would be pretty boring for a song like this, imo. :P

Shannon's on Kpop Star currently. Not sure why exactly she's there, but this last season of Kpop Star allows trainees and already debuted people to take part.

Once the subs arrive, we'll find out. Meanwhile, enjoy her voice.
