Jones: “I think she made it pretty clear; don’t make her wait ’til Christmas!
It makes my soul smile to hear Sheléa use her undeniable chops to bring us some
more music to enjoy this holiday season. Absolutely beautiful.”

The
unparalleled songstress and pianist has been selling out tour dates on her
Natural Woman tour, a soulful intent on bringing back organic singing and
songwriting, as she evokes the sultry energy of Whitney Houston and the piano
chops and writing prowess of Alicia Keys. Sheléa also starred in “Quincy Jones
Presents Sheléa,” on PBS which aired nationwide earlier this year.

Shelèa
will make her acting debut in April 2020 as Dorinda Clark in the Clark Sisters
Biopic on the Lifetime Channel. The movie was executive produced by Queen
Latifah, Mary J. Blige & Missy Elliott.

She has
performed at the White House with Stevie Wonder, Library of Congress, Carnegie
Hall and the Kennedy Center, to name a few. She’s also appeared on several PBS
specials, including ‘A Grammy Salute to Music Legends’ paying homage to Tina
Turner.  

Sheléa’s debut album, Love Fell On Me garnered the single
“I’ll Never Let You Go,” peaking at #22 on the Billboard R&B charts and
charting for 22+ weeks, with features by Stevie Wonder, Brian McKnight and
Narada Michael Walden. It was a return to true artistry blending traditional
pop, jazz, R&B and soul, marking an exciting revival of singing and
songwriting in an industry laced with auto-tune and beat driven numbers.

She also lent her stellar vocals to soundtrack projects including Hotel
Rwanda, Akeelah and the Bee and Be Cool. Her songwriting
credits include tracks for the
Sony film, Jumping
the Broom
 and the CW series, Black Lightening. 

Stay tuned for more music to come from Sheléa in early 2020.
