The Inside Scoop:
Savanah Wiggins currently attends SUNY Oneonta for music performance. Music isn't a new hobby for the songstress. Savanah grew up singing everything and anything. The musical roots in the Wiggins family include her Mom and Grandma (who sing), her great grandma (who plays the piano), and her Aunt Carolyn (also a pianist).
Savanah's seen Igrid Michaelson, Kelly Clarkson, Karmin, Lone Star, and Mumford and Sons in concert. But, aside from choir competitions, this is the first time Savanah will be putting her music in front of an audience.
