Those lunching in the Maucker Union on Tuesday, Nov. 27 enjoyed their meals with music from Maucker Union Live performer Shannon Jones.

A junior vocal music education major, Jones accompanied herself with an acoustic guitar while singing a set of 11 songs. These included “Rise” by Katy Perry, “No Diggity” by Blackstreet, “She Used To Be Mine” by Sara Bareilles and “Put Your Records On” by Corinne Bailey Rae.

Jones said she felt excited after her performance.

“[It] wasn’t perfect, but I had fun and received so much encouragement and support from friends and people I didn’t know who were listening in Maucker,” she said.

Jones has been singing and performing since she was three years old.

“It is something that I have always been passionate about,” Jones said. “What I love most about it is that I’m able to share my gifts with others while being myself, letting go and getting lost in the music.”
