Becoming the First Black Woman to Reign as Miss Texas
An event that took weeks of preparation finally took flight; a recital in a small auditorium at Collin County Community College where the voices of many students, including that of Shilah Precious Phillips filled the once empty room.
The aforementioned all began on a day that many people deem a very unlucky day, Friday the 13th. Shilah was born in November on that day, but for her it represents everything but ill fated. Only three years later, Shilah would wow her first crowd. On that unsuspecting day in Fresco, California, her mother along with pews of other church family discovered Shilah's ability to belt out a simple gospel song when a young soloist fell sick and could not perform. It was that day that her mother decided to find a school where Shilah could further develop her singing talent. A few years later, even though she was not old enough to drive yet, her talent helped her win her first car. At eleven her mother enrolled her in the Denver School for the Performing Arts where she received all kinds of awards. Her experiences there gained her a spot in the prestigious Howard University to further study jazz with with people like Victor Goings from New York's "Lincoln Center Jazz and Orchestra."
In her first year at Howard, Shilah was given an opportunity of a lifetime; to work in California toward a pop music career. Shilah spent four years in a whorl wind life; meeting music producers, writers and many other people who promised to help launch her pop music career. Then she made a decision to go back to school and spend time with her mother who'd moved to Texas. In one final decision to move, she met a person who became one of her closest friends. In her excitement about Shilah's abilities, Veronica networked her way in to meet various people in the music industry that could help with Shilah's goals. After seeing Shilah frustrated with paying her school bills, she signed Shilah up for the local pageant. With weeks of pushing and practice Shilah won the Miss Frisco title. And so that began another chapter in Shilah's life.
Her ability to get on any stage and appear unruffled, confident and prepared as though she was meant to perform surpasses that of the average performer. In turn, even though she's very down to earth, Shilah is very well spoken, has great posture and wonderful presence. She attributes these abilities and her other successes to her background in music education. Therefore, she chooses to dedicate her platform as the reigning Miss Texas to promoting arts education. One thing about pageants; it's a chance for a young woman to be a role model for young girls. Looking at the things she's accomplished and what she represents, who wouldn't want to be Shilah Precious Phillips, born on Friday the 13th, only weeks before Halloween?
