The 2012 Harmony Queens started making some Epic noise in early 2011,  when Chris and Kris starting digging around for singers with a different first name. They found Anne, who is sufficiently loud. And they found Shana, who is, indeed, a former Miss Maryland.  

These ladies like Epic shoes, Epic tags and Epic rehearsals.
