Breanna Anders is the youngest member of this year’s 20 Under 20.
The 14-year-old got her start playing the ukulele at 11, and got rooted quickly before expanding to guitar and piano.
Anders also ventured into the world of songwriting.
For Anders, her gift is about sharing and helping others. She sings with her church and eagerly pitches in to sing or perform anytime she’s called upon. She’s earned a reputation as a servant leader who takes charge, but also invests in others and their music.
Next up, she’s eager to dive into music theory with the same vigor that helped her teach herself to play the ukulele, piano, guitar, and cajón.
“If I wanna learn a new chord progression, or really anything, I’ll look it up or I’ll listen to it by ear or ask someone,” she said.
“A lot of my music inspiration has come from things I’ve learned in school. Things I’ve been surrounded by.”
Music runs in the family, and she actually plays her grandmother’s guitar.
“As a Christian, I think that music is an art and gift from God,” Anders said. “We were given music to praise Him. It can be used to lift people up or tear them down. It can really change everything. It’s definitely my life.”
