Alisha Pace is a passionate sparkplug, committed to her dream of becoming the
next singer and performer to add some spirit to the world of country music. Alisha was
raised in Sugar Land, Texas, to Lex and Tiffany Pace. When naming her, Alisha’s mom
liked the name Alyssa and her dad liked Alicia, so they concocted the ultimate marriage
compromise- Alisha (rhymes with delisha, which is not a word but it sounds like
delicious). While her mother claims she would “sing herself to sleep in the crib,” Alisha
started performing publicly at the age of eight. Acting at a community theater led to
participating in musical theater, which then morphed into just performing vocally.
Although she kept up with acting in High School, Alisha spent the majority of her
time developing her passion to become a country music singer. In high school, Alisha
competed at the Ft. Bend County Fair, Sugar Land Super Star, the Houston Rodeo, and
many local charity events. This all led to recording for a local label– SingTop10, with
which she recorded singles for ITunes. One of her most exciting moments to date
occurred when she made the top 300 in season 11 of American Idol, allowing her to land
a Golden Ticket and attend Hollywood Week.
Although Alisha loves many genres of music, including CCM, Jazz, Acoustic,
Pop-Rock, and Broadway, her favorite to perform is country. With a unique set of vocals
and an infectious performing style, her goal on stage is to make her audience smile.
Currently, Alisha is finishing out her last year at Baylor University with a degree
in Sales. After spending a summer in Nashville and working as a karaoke host at
Lonnie’s Karaoke Bar, Alisha entered senior year with the goal of starting a band. This
dream birthed the creation of “Alisha and the Pacemakers.” Alisha and her band have
played at Austin’s on the Avenue in Waco, Texas, and are hopeful to begin booking
anywhere and everywhere. Alisha has also recently played at the Heart o’ Texas Fair and
Rodeo, the Fort Bend County Fair and several private events. Alisha’s favorite quote
is “There are no such things as strangers. Just friends I haven’t met yet.” So meet her!
She will love ya!
