Stella was born the sixth of 12 children and grew up in very simple living conditions. She has been in the country music business for many years and had several hits and received awards. But what's not common knowledge is, that just like her sister Dolly, Stella devotes much of her time to causes like domestic violence and teaches at the New Opportunity School for Women at Berea College in Berea, KY, utilizing her knowledge of hair and makeup to help women build self-esteem. She also has a thriving consulting business, Attic Entertainment Artist Development & Entertainment Consulting, teaching stage presence, hair, makeup, wardrobe techniques and video coaching. She also gives workshops for needy, but talented children.
Stella Parton has served as national spokesperson for Mothers Against Drunk Driving and the Christian Appalachian Project and National Honorary Country Music Ambassador to the American Cancer Society.
I have known Stella for 22 years and I admire her musical abilities as much as her social achievements. People like her and Dolly could easily live in comfort and luxury, without worrying about others, but they are a shining example of what famous people should be doing!
