The Secret Sisters, a duo consisting of real-life sisters Laura and Lydia Rogers, is slated to entertain at Freed-Hardeman University’s 48th Annual Benefit Dinner. The sisters will open for featured speaker Condoleezza Rice Friday, Dec. 7.
The Rogerses, real-life sisters from Muscle Shoals, Ala., sing traditional country music with effortless harmonies. The sisters say their story begins with their family’s love for music. The duo learned to harmonize through a cappella singing in their home congregation, North Carolina Church of Christ in Greenhill, Ala. Laura attended FHU from 2004-06 to pursue a business degree. An impromptu Nashville audition led the sisters to begin a singing career.
In 2010, the duo released the self-titled album “The Secret Sisters,” featuring a cover of “Why Baby Why” and the original “Tennessee Me.” When recording the album, classic recording equipment was used to capture the sisters’ pure sound; the vintage microphones and recording techniques were the same as production teams used fifty years ago. The Secret Sisters’ song “Tomorrow Will Be Kinder” appears on the much-hyped 2012 “Hunger Games” movie soundtrack, entitled “The Hunger Games: Songs from District Twelve and Beyond.” The sisters are currently working on their second album.
