Sheila Aldridge

Today is July 18th, we celebrate another Welk star's birthday!
Our Birthday Girl featured today is.........

SHEILA ALDRIDGE...the very talented and pretty singer who makes up one half of the Aldridge Sisters.

Growing up in Knoxville, TN....She (as friends and family like to call her), along with older sister Sherry got their chops singing in local venues around the Smoky Mountain region when fate pointed them to audition for Lawrence Welk which led them to a five year stint on the show, paired with the Otwell Twins of Tulia, TX from 1977 to 1982.

Sheila has been busy herself, in addition to performing with Sherry in the sister act, she also did some acting appearing in TV shows such as "Down To Earth" on TBS and movies like "Bed and Breakfast".

Once married to comedian Roger Behr, she now lives in Hendersonville, TN with her current husband Chris Costa, who is a singer/musician himself. They both have an act together which performs all over Nashville.
Let us wish Sheila Aldridge a very very happy birthday today!
