With the pressures of ‘the industry’ and everyday chatter, it made it difficult for this mother/daughter duo and soon they found themselves at an expiration. Sadi wanted to take a break; this was the end of ‘The Lynch’s’. Shelley says, “It’s sad. I know that Sadi and I have something special, we always have had. But I have to surrender it to God and be grateful of the experience I had.”
In late spring 2013, Shelley left her husband. This was a very trying time for her and she only had one thing to say, “Nobody knows what goes on in a marriage except for the two people involved. Sometimes things just don’t work out, that is just the way it is”.
With the passing of her father on July 8, 2015, added to the down side of life. “I don’t even know what to say, or how to explain the sadness I felt and continue to feel with the loss of my dad. I have comfort knowing that he is always around me, watching over all of my family and especially my mom. I do know that he believed in my music career and I have to kick myself in the butt and get moving.” For the past year Shelley has been upgrading her paramedic skills. She explains that working all the time and studying keeps her from losing it! “I know my time to grieve is still coming, maybe when or if I ever slow down. But for now, I will give it all I got, as life is short and we only live once.”
Shelley has persistence, a positive outlook and a desire to take her dream to yet another level. Back on her own, she knows the music business needs to be balanced with her family life and her job, but it is time to step it up a couple notches, focusing more on the business.
Regardless whether she achieves the world limelight like she hopes and right now this definitely seems a close possibility, this young woman is already a success at life, proving she has what it takes to be an international star.
