From an early age, Lindsay and Kasey Staniszewski knew they were born to perform. Music always filled the Staniszewski home, and their parents introduced them to all genres – from Broadway to country and everything in between. The sisters began performing on stage in local, school and community theatres, and slowly but surely gained the skills and confidence of rising stars. Every chance they had, the young hopefuls took to the stages, starring in musicals, performing at community events and singing anywhere they could find an audience. Lindsay and Kasey, only three years apart, grew individually, finding their own passions and voices, but the bond and connection they shared as sisters could not be denied. Over time, the girls began performing together, wowing crowds with their charisma on stage and their unique vocal sound. Lindsay and Kasey gained notoriety not only for their standout voices and their stirring harmonies, but as role models and leaders, on stage and off.
In pursuing their dreams and grasping each and every opportunity to share their talents, the sisters each have been successful in many arenas, including community advocacy, public speaking and pageantry. Lindsay won the title of Miss Maryland in 2010, bringing her talents, personality and active community involvement to the stage of the nationally televised Miss America pageant on ABC in 2011.

She has served as a National Ambassador for The Confidence Coalition and an advocate and keynote speaker for The Girl Scouts of the USA. Additionally, Lindsay received her B.A. in Communication from the University of Maryland College Park.
