Sheila E Background

Hailing from California, Sheila E always knew that she could become a star. Her musical skills developed at an early age, but this didn't come as a surprise to anyone, though, as she comes from a highly musical family. Several of her uncles had successful musical careers in various bands, so musical talent clearly runs in the family. By the time she was in her early twenties, Sheila had already achieved more than most artists could ever dream of. She had performed alongside artists like Lionel Richie, Diana Ross, Herbie Hancock, Marvin Gaye, and George Duke. One day, Sheila's life would change forever. While performing on stage with Pete Escovedo, somebody in the audience noticed her incredible talent—Prince. After the show, Prince introduced himself to Sheila and decided to take her under his wing. This was a major break for Sheila, and working with Prince would indeed launch her solo career.

While working with Prince, Sheila contributed to songs like "Erotic City" and "Let's Go Crazy", but she kept her dreams of becoming a successful solo artist. So in the mid-1980s, Sheila worked on furthering her solo career, and she scored several hits with songs like "The Glamorous Life" and "The Belle of St. Mark". With her initial success as a solo artist and her friendship with Prince, it wasn't a surprise when Prince invited her to open for his Purple Rain tour. During this tour, not only did Sheila begin a brief romantic fling with Prince, but she also garnered countless new fans with every new show. By the late 1980s, Sheila had decided to branch off from Prince's career to focus solely on her solo career, which achieved phenomenal success. Whether she was performing as a solo artist or as a collaborative artist, Sheila always stole the show. Her powerful vocals and incredible instrumental skills led to her explosion in popularity in the R&B scene, and she has remained an R&B icon for decades. If you love great R&B music, then you have undoubtedly heard many of Sheila E's greatest hits. You definitely shouldn't miss seeing her perform in concert, however, as this talented singer-songwriter knows how to put on electrifying live shows. Grab your Sheila E tickets on StubHub today!
