Majesty Rose began writing at age ten and taught herself the acoustic guitar at seventeen. Despite her skills as a singer and guitarist, she has never taken formal lessons.
In North Carolina, she was a student at the Eastern Wayne High School and graduated in 2010. She also attended Wayne Community College and participated in SGA (Student Government Association). She worked as a preschool teacher at the Goldsboro Family YMCA before appearing on American Idol. Rose was known in her community for serving at multiple churches and volunteering at nursing homes and community outreach projects.
According to Rose, she changed her name from Majesty Rochelle York to Majesty Rose as a dare going into American Idol. She always wished her name was "Rose". Her time on American Idol also earned her fans the name #Rosebuddies as she often would Tweet "Friends are better than Fans." Rose is continuing her music and hopes to inspire others to follow what they are most gifted in.
