Starting out, Sheila E. owned the stage as a drummer and percussionist. But her career took an exciting turn when she met Prince backstage after a gig. The singer-songwriter revealed he had been following her career for some time, and the two quickly became friends. Their friendship eventually led to Sheila E. lending her vocals on Prince’s song “Erotic City”—a move that prompted her to launch her own solo singing career. Having been influenced by so many different genres of music over the years, as a singer, Sheila E. nails a variety of styles. From Latin, to jazz, to R&B, Sheila pours her heart and soul into every song. Sheila has had an evolutionary music career. Her sound changes with the era and her life. For example, Sheila’s first singles differ in sound from the Sheila E. of today. You can hear her maturation—as a person and an artist—as her career has grown.

Nothing compares to the rush that come from attending a live performance. You’re surrounded by fellow fans with similar interests. You’re getting to experience raw emotions, a one-of-a-kind show, a personal connection with a performer, and so much more. Her latest album, Icon, is meant to be heard in its most powerful setting—when performed live by Sheila, herself.

Exuding talent and passion from every bone in her body, Sheila gives a performance like no other. Known to improvise electric drum solos and involve her audience in each show, the lively Latin artist delivers a powerful production every time. You’ll feel the excitement as soon as she hits the stage.
