Kelsey and Aubree grew up in Davison, Michigan singing in church with their mom. They are sisters, three years apart. In 2000, they started writing songs together and performing them at church and camp. The summer of 2001, Ron Moore, a local singer/ songwriter saw Kelsey perform at a talent show at Camp Lael in Lapeer, Michigan and asked her if she would be willing to come to a studio of his friends to record. Shortly after that Ron asked to manage Kelsey and Aubree. They toured in Michigan, Mississippi, North Carolina, and Florida before splitting up the duo in 2004. In the summer of 2004 Aubree married Sam Kraut, and Kelsey went to college for music. Kelsey is still pursuing her solo career as Kelsey Madelyn.
