The world was introduced to Savannah Berry on season four of NBC-TV’s The Voice when her rousing version of “Safe & Sound” secured her a slot on Blake Shelton’s team. But like most “overnight success” stories, there were years of dedication and commitment that came before. Savannah, now 19, has been performing since she was 8 years old when her grandmother first brought her on-stage to sing with her at a Saturday night Opry in Houston.
When she was in the sixth grade, Savannah got the idea that it would be fun to videotape her performances of songs and post them on YouTube for her family and friends. Savannah was surprised when people that she did not know started posting song requests.
The views increased with each video performance that she posted and in 2011 Savannah’s YouTube channel took off catching the attention of the Academy of Country Music and her favorite artists, Sugarland. They asked if she would be interested in doing a “video duet” that would be used as a promo for the ACM Awards show. Savannah jumped at the chance and met up with Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush at the Ryman Auditorium, home of the Grand Ole Opry, to record a video of the duo’s #1 hit, “Stuck Like Glue.” The video was released in March 2011.
Savannah went on to join Sugarland on the red carpet at the 46th Annual ACM Awards to promote the video and she was also invited to perform at the ACM Awards All Star Jam, which, as an unsigned artist is a very rare occurrence.
As it turns out, that video duet was just the beginning of a collaborative relationship with Kristian Bush. In June of 2013, the two got together at Blackbird Studios in Nashville to record Savannah’s original Christmas song, “Silent Night Without You.” The song was praised by Country Weekly: “Dazzling…an instant Christmas classic…Savannah delivers a vocal performance so driven by longing that you can only surmise that whoever’s not coming for Christmas isn’t merely delayed.”
Savannah wrote “Silent Night Without You” as a tribute to military families that are separated during the holidays. She has passionately raised money and awareness for Armed Services YMCA and its charities that support military families in need over the holidays. Her campaign has taken her to military bases including Fort Campbell, Fort Bliss, and Hollman Air Force Base, where she has performed for the troops and their families and communities.
Savannah is currently writing songs, alone and together with Kristian Bush for her first full-length album. In addition to “Silent Night Without You,” Savannah’s performances from The Voice and her 2012 EP are available on iTunes and Amazon.
Savannah performs live, solo and with her band, throughout her home state at opries, rodeos, sporting events and clubs. She’s a regular at WineStyles in Houston where she sells out every show. Savannah has performed at the Country Music Is Love benefit concert for City of Hope alongside Thompson Square, Josh Thompson, Chris Cavanaugh and Brett Eldredge. She has also performed with some of the biggest stars of the Texas music scene including Martina McBride, Sheryl Crow, Jack Ingram, Sammy Kershaw, Cody Canada (Cross Canadian Ragweed), Stony LaRue, Wade Bowen, Hayes Carll and Sean McConnell.
