Who is this new soulful songstress?
Sheria or “She She” for those who know her well, is the product of California’s Silicon Valley, San Jose, East Palo Alto and has Midwestern roots deep in Kansas and Missouri.
The singing started early. As a young member of her church choir, Sheria performed a rendition of the spiritual, “Go Tell It On the Mountain,” and the church exploded into applause. She became aware of how her voice could affect people. Sheria’s voice combines a silky smooth aesthetic with an emotional edge and just enough Midwest comfort to make you want to stay a little longer... compelled to ask for more.
In 2006 and again in 2010, Sheria was diagnosed with breast cancer. Many of you know that going through a life changing experience once can truly test a person’s faith. A second battle may cause one to throw in the towel. However, Sheria beat cancer twice, and on the last time around, the light went on. It was time to sing again.
“When I am singing, I convey messages of love, empowerment, triumph, peace and perseverance. My experiences have provided many insights and this transcends into the music I create. I am blessed to be able to share these lessons with the world using this voice that was given to me.”
Prepare to experience a voice of tremendous power and authenticity!
