At an early age Elizabeth was diagnosed with Acute Thyroid Disease, which caused her to lose her voice. So she quit singing and found a career in healthcare for the elderly while she continued to write poetry in her spare time. Though she wouldn't leave music for long. After graduating from the University of Phoenix, the lord blessed her once more with the use of her voice after winning her battle with Thyroid Disease. While her newly rediscovered voice was left horse and strained, she never stopped singing the praises of her lord and began releasing music on her own in 2012
