O Holy Night
'Elizabeth', the latest singing sensation from Tulsa, Oklahoma, is comprised of Bet Wallace and her daughter, Ashtyn. They share the same middle name, Elizabeth, which means, "set-apart", 'Consecrated to God' or 'dedicated to God'. The Wallaces have each been singing their entire lives but didn't start singing together until Ashtyn's junior year in high school. Ashtyn was already singing her heart out at the age of three when she could sing all the lyrics to all the songs from Les Miserables. As she grew up she sang and acted in various musical productions, and during high school, Ashtyn sang with the four-girl singing group, American Girlz. The girls traveled extensively and performed over 200 shows in a two-year period. During that time Ashtyn wrote and helped arrange several songs for their CD, American Girlz, Live! The girls were also featured on the first Tulsa's Best and Brightest CD. Ashtyn now resides in Nashville where she is pursuing a career in the music business and is currently working on a demo CD. Bet Wallace has been singing and performing her entire life, as well. From her first performance of "O Holy Night" as a nine year old at the Christmas Eve service at a church in Oklahoma City, to her current position as a worship leader in a large church in Tulsa, OK, Bet has sung in many different musical genres, and in all types of musical settings, her favorite, of course, being with her daughter, Ashtyn. She previously released a solo album, What Wondrous Love, and had a recording contract in the 70's with Midland International Records. It was during this time that the pop single, Shauna was released under the name of 'Elizabeth Jane'. Bet resides in Tulsa with her fifteen year old son, Sam. She owns and operates a music studio where she teaches voice and piano. Last Christmas Eve, Bet and Ashtyn sang "O Holy Night" together and were later approached by Jeff Glendening, a member of their church about sponsoring a recording project for them. His vision was to find a way for the rest of the world to have the privilege of hearing the Wallaces sing. After deciding on the name, Elizabeth, they recorded "O Holy Night" because of it's audience appeal and it's ability to cross-over into almost any music genre at this time of year. They added two other songs, "Serving You", for Christian and Adult Contemporary markets, and "I Don't Wanna Go", for Country, Adult Contemporary, and Christian markets. Elizabeth's ultimate goal is to touch lives with their voices, knowing full-well that their "DNA blend" is God-given. They hope their lives will reflect the meaning of their name and that their music will be a shining light to others in a sometimes dark world.
