Playing her first song on the piano at age 4 and acting in her first musical theater performance at age 6, Eleisha has pursued her dreams in music and voice with tireless passion. Pursuing these dreams led her to audition for NBC's Americas Got Talent (season 4 - 2009) at the age of 8 years old and later finishing in the nations top 40. All the judges agreed she had the signs of a talented actress of which she later moved on to pursue brief interests in Hollywood, CA.

To balance a challenging acting schedule, Eleisha has homeschooled most of her life graduating at the top of her class and chosen as valedictorian (2018, Bridgeway Academy - Catasauqua, PA). But just as she told Piers Morgan that one August night(2009) in front of millions of viewers: "music is in my heart", Eleisha has remained true to this creed.
