When your first public appearance is at age 5 and the backing band is the legendary Joe Pope & The Tams, and your father is Jackie Gore, the man known as the “Godfather of Beach Music”, it is almost certain that your destiny is to become the all-time most popular and recognized female vocalist in the Carolinas. Known throughout the world as the “Original Carolina Girl”, Terri possesses a rare vocal ability that distinguishes her both as a top performer and recording artist. A very beautiful lady and a singer with an exceptional voice. She’s a pack of dynamite on the stage as she performs and entertains. In my opinion no one brings the excitement to the room through a performance like she does. She many awards for her singing talent over the years including at least 9 from the Carolina Beach Music Academy or CBMA.
