The Sharpe Family Chats With TMI About Their Journey Through Social Media
Hey Guys!! Can you tell us how you first got into Social Media?
It all started after we watched Frozen 2 in the movie theaters while performing a concert in Ireland! From there we came up with a funny skit idea, that was inspired by the film. We downloaded TikTok thinking it would be the perfect platform for funny singing skits…and it definitely was!
TikTok has our biggest following with 2.5 million!
What’s something your fans don’t know about you?
Logan – I am very good at Basketball
Aidan – I am really good at video games
Connor – I really love all of our pets
Samantha – I have perfect pitch!
Barbra – I was the “USA National Taekwondo Champion”
Ron – I won the Baseball MVP of the Broadway Show league in NYC.
Why do you think social media is so important for teens today?
Social Media is more vital now than ever! Looking at the current situation in the world, it’s the most convenient & relevant way to stay in touch with friends! It also helps kids keep up to date with the latest news and trends!
Many siblings don’t get to work in the same industry let alone get to collaborate on projects together. Do you like getting to collaborate with your siblings on social media?
Of course! It’s so cool being able to work with the people you love the most. Being super comfortable around each other makes the process go smoothly! Since there’s a lot of us…we never have a shortage of new ideas!
Are there any fun projects in the works you can tell us about?
Yes! We are working on a holiday album and pop album with some original music. We are hoping to continue our concert tour starting in LA, Florida and Atlantic City this December. We are wanting to break into the TV world with our family show, but right now, we are enjoying our many collaborations with other artists on our social media platforms!
What inspired you to pursue music?
Our parents have been in music for their whole careers. They met on the stage of Broadway’s Les Miserables where they played Marius and Cosette. We have been around music and performing our whole lives so it always seems natural to sing and perform with our family!
What artists do you look up to right now?
Because we are all different ages, we each have different favorites. We enjoy singing harmony, so many of the music groups with great harmonies are at the top of our list. One of our favorites are the Pentatonix!
What’s an average day for the “Sharpe Family Singers” look like?
With the way things have been for the past 3 months we have spent a lot of time together at home! The twins (Aidan and Connor) can be found in their room playing video games. Logan has just finished his senior year so now it’s about hanging out with friends and playing sports. Samantha is always researching songs and other trending ideas as well as recording songs in our home studio. Mom and dad usually are doing what parents do, organizing our schedule and feeding everyone. We love having game nights and one of our favorite things to do is play indoor hide-and-go-seek in the dark with each other!
If your life was a movie, what would be the title?
“It’s Never Quiet in Our House” or “Sharpe Family Singers the Movie”
Who would you want to play you?
Ron “Dad” – Will Ferrell
Barbra “Mom” – Kate Beckinsale
Samantha “daughter” – Meryl Streep
Logan “older son” – Tom Holland
Aidan “twin” – Tom Cruise
Connor “twin” – The Rock
What would you say is your biggest dream/goal right now?
Definitely making an album with original music! And working for Disney someday!
Any last things you want to tell your supporters?
We really appreciate everyone who likes and comments on our videos and we do our best to respond to as many people as possible! We feel so grateful and lucky to have so many people who appreciate our music and skits!
Lastly, do you have any tips for your supporters during this crazy time to stay happy and healthy?
Please be extra careful and safe! We have all gone through so much effort to stay healthy and with summer here we still all have to be smart as it’s not over yet!! Wear a mask, wash your hands, don’t touch your face, watch funny videos and protect your family by taking care of yourself!
