Our Headliner: Shelea – Singer, Songwriter, and Protege of the Legendary Quincy Jones
With a voice that stirs the soul and hands that effortlessly glide over the keys, Shelea represents a return to true artistry that has garnered much attention and adoration from legends throughout the music industry. Her sultry sound is an exciting oasis in an age of auto-tune. Blending traditional pop, jazz, R&B, and soul, Shelea brings a contemporary edge to classics and a classic touch to contemporary pop standards.
Over the last several years, her rising star has continued to accelerate on an unstoppable trajectory. In 2015, she headlined a tour with Kirk Whalum, Gerald Albright, and Norman Brown, and soon after joined mentor Stevie Wonder for his Songs In the Key Of Life tour. In 2017, Shelea had the distinct honor of being selected by Quincy Jones to be the first vocalist for his jazz club Q’s Bar and Lounge at the Palazzo Versace Dubai where she performed a month-long residency. Word quickly spread and her international appeal made it the premier choice for entertainment. Several months later, she made her Carnegie Hall debut in a tribute performance to Jimmy Webb.
In March 2019, Shelea starred on PBS, joined by special guests David Foster and Greg Phillinganes, in the concert special Quincy Jones Presents: Shelea, as well as released her much-anticipated third album Pretty World: Through the Eyes of Alan and Marilyn Bergman (Breath of Life Records/Universal). Shelea stars in the Lifetime Movie music biopic You Brought the Sunshine: The Story of The Clark Sisters, executive produced by Queen Latifah, Missy Elliot, and Mary J. Blige.
