Mooresville Newsmakers of 2019: People

Kayla Vega has picked up plenty of labels in her young music career – singer, songwriter, guitarist, keyboardist. After a dogged six-year pursuit, she got the one she really wanted: A record label. The 24-year-old Mooresville resident signed with Dojo Records, a New York-based indie label, in April. A month later, she released “Home” in honor of slain K9 Mooresville Police Officer Jordan Sheldon. On Dec. 20, Vega announced that she’d raised almost $10,000 to create the Jordan H. Sheldon Memorial Scholarship, which will help incoming police cadets go through basic training.Add text
