Born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, Abigail discovered her passion for music immediately after Hurricane Katrina destroyed the family home and nearly took every natural possession they owned. At only six years old during the crisis, she awoke to hear a song in her heart and wrote out lyrics as a reflection on their sudden circumstances. The song was titled "BEAUTIFUL" and would become one of her first original songs on her debut album released at the tender age of ten.
A dancer since she was two years old, Abigail quickly incorporated her passion for music with a beat and her Christian lyrics to become one of the youngest teen artists to have a Christian song reach the top 100 Billboard Singles charts in 2014. Her second album, "RIGHT NOW", combined pop music with EDM and dubstep elements to create an exciting alternative for tweens desiring to listen to a secular sound but with faith based lyrics. She was the recipient of the 2015 "Best Emerging Artist" from the We Love Christian Music awards sponsored by NewReleaseToday.com.
In 2013, Abigail was selected to become a cast-member of the television show iShine Knect, which averages over one-million viewers each week on TBN Network and other faith based networks around the world.
Her role as Elizabeth in the 2013 film "This Is Our Time" launched her film career. Then, in 2014, she was cast in the worldwide record setting Christian film "God's Not Dead" as student, Abby Wheaton. Her work as a featured actor in "Camp Cool Kids" (2017) and "Caged No More" (January 2016) show extreme diversity in roles. Two others include "God's Not Dead 2" (April 2016) and "I'm Not Ashamed" (October 2016) the Columbine High School Shooting Story. She continues to add to her resume with other independent films.
She has been touring nationally since 2013 for music, opening for popular artists, Newsboys and For King and Country while participating in The Millennial Tour, a teen artist lineup national tour. Her 50+ concerts have been seen at festivals like Creation Northeast and Northwest, Freedom Festival Jacksonville, Sonshine Festival, ICRS Main Stage, iShine Fall and Winter tours, Ichthus Festival, Amplifyfest, Lifest, and Lifelight Festival South Dakota.
She has worked with Dove award winning and Grammy nominated writers Chuck Butler (Brandon Heath, Royal Tailor), Jamie Moore (TobyMac), Aaron Rice (TobyMac), Ian Eskelin (Francesca Battistelli, Britt Nicole), and Ahmande "Mondo Grimes" (Nicole C. Mullen). She is mentored and vocal coached by former Mouseketeer, Jennifer McGill as well as industry veteran Diane Sheets.
