Whitney and Shannon's parents were traveling missionaries, and the girls would sing and minister to people on the street. At ages 15 and 18 their parents divorced, and Shannon moved to Los Angeles for a ministry program, while Whitney moved to Dallas to attend Bible college. Music has taken a backseat over the past few years with work taking priority. Shannon recently got married and the sisters are beginning to drift apart musically. The Voice is their last shot at sticking together as a singing duo.
