In the sentence - He shines bright in me and through me as I reach out to al the "Sharon Harrises' in the world -

I need to make sure that Harrises' is correct.....can you tell me?
Anonymous"Sharon Harrises'
Why a double-quote at the beginning and a single quote at the end?

The plural of Harris is Harrises. There is no apostrophe.

... to all the Sharon Harrises in the world.

If you want the full name in quotes, you need a double-quote on both ends:

... to all the "Sharon Harrises" in the world.
