About Susan Manion


I started singing and performing at a very young age. I was a natural performer and was in the grammar and high school choirs. I would spend my summers up at the lake where they had talent shows. That is where I started to develop my talent. I sang at memorial and church services. As a teen I started modeling and became a Frain high fashion model. I tried out for a record label company called Sound Knowledge Studios in Minneapolis, Minnesota not knowing that they were band members of Hoddie and The Blowfish and The Blues Travelers.  I was accepted. We made a CD together. I recorded "All You Wanted" which went to the top10 on the Christian Country charts and "There Is Peace" which made it to the top 15. I was asked to be on The Inspirational Country Music Awards and presented Ricky Skaggs the award for the for Musician of The Year. I also presented with Holly Tucker, the girl from The Voice. I also presented on The International Country Gospel Music Awards with Chuck Hancock. I sang on stage at BB Kings in Nashville and the TCT Network where I did a TV interview and sang on their Christmas Special. I also was interviewed on the Treva and Kevin TV show. I was on The Grand Ole' Opry stage participating in a tribute to Dr. Ralph Stanley. I've appeared several times on The Grand Ole' Opry "Sunday Morning Country which is a part of CMA Fest. "I'm in the process of making a movie where I will play a nurse and I will sing my song " I'm Awake Now" written by Ricky Skaggs. Mel Gibson will play the lead in the movie called "The Message. In 2021 I was presented with The International Country Gospel Music "Presidents Award". It means that I can do a little bit of everything - a jack of all trades. I own a business in Orland Park, IL. We are in a few different states. It allows me to pursue what I love - music.
