Roberta Jymme Schourop (born April 7, 1943, Monterey Park, California) was raised in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. 

Roberta never took singing lessons, but appears to have inherited her talent from her father, who once played in a western band.  At age ten she sang at a local supermarket opening, and was noticed by Tex Williams.   He suggested shortening her family name to "Shore", and invited her to join his weekly local television show at Knott's Berry Farm.  After eighteen months of live performing, she next joined NBC's daily childrens program, The Pinky Lee Show, at the suggestion of the departing singer, fourteen year-old Molly Bee. . . .
