I saw Sheila on an interview quite some time ago. She said how she didn't regret any of her past as it brought her to where she was with Jesus (my paraphrase). I'd like to thank her for that. I went through some tough times several years ago and remembering her words brought me strength when many in the church had turned their backs on me. I guess I deserved their reaction as I chose some nasty chemicals over the Lord for a while. Christ sent just the right people into my life at that time to help get me through it. Today I have a life I could have never imagined in Vancouver, BC. Jesus is everywhere I turn. I have a stunning wife and wonderful step daughter that only our Lord could have coupled me with. I'd like to thank Sheila for her words and the resulting impact they had in my life. She was a breath of hope that came to me when I needed it the most. There are probably many thousands more she has helped that she will never know about. Please convey my highest respect and most sincere regards.

Did this little boy belong to the party of Sheila Escovedo? This was too damn well to be improvised! It was hard for me to convince the press that it was only the idea, the dream to be given the opportunity to a very young man to take part in the show of the biggest female "Icon" in percussion and drumming. And this remarkable women accepted the risk of a spoiler and called JC on stage after he managed to persuade her by a box of Belgian quality chocolates and this text:

SHEILA E. B.B. ...

SHEILA E. B.B. King Blues Club & Grill - SHEILA E. - May 1, 2015 B.B. King Blue Club & Grill

...
One of life's constants for Sheila E. comes down to a simple phrase: follow the beat. And her impeccable inner rhythm is the pulse behind a trailblazing career that still knows no bounds.
...
"The idea to record another solo album was actually spawned while I was writing the autobiography," recalls Sheila E. "I realized that some of the things I was writing about should be a song. That's when I also began looking back at songs I'd written several years earlier and forgotten about, but whose themes needed to be talked about in the book. Both fed each other."
As the musical half of Sheila E.'s storied life and career, Icon pulsates from start to finish with colorful fusions of the Latin, jazz, R&B, pop, funk and rock influences that shaped her unique style. The 13-track set opens with the soaring "Butterfly," the first of four interludes that subtly yet powerfully illuminate the versatile talent behind the music. "'Butterfly' reflects part of the journey in my book," explains Sheila E., nicknamed butterfly by family friend Carlos Santana.
...
"I'm used to playing live," says Sheila E., who also executive produced the project. "Why would I punch in my soul on a computer? She unleashes that soul on the set's first full track "Mona Lisa," an energetic cut drawn from her Latin roots. Also joining Sheila E. on her musical reverie are two singular storytellers in their own right: singer/songwriter Ledisi and pioneering rapper MC Lyte. The latter's signature edgy flow spices up the saucy, dues paying-themed "Nasty Thang," which outlines the drama and glamour life in music. Ledisi adds a poignant touch to "Girl Like Me," an honest yet empowering message about surviving abuse. An abuse survivor herself, Sheila E. originally penned the song to perform with her 2007 female band C.O.E.D. (Chronicles of Every Diva). That soul-searching continues on the mid-tempo "Who I Am Now."
Rounding out the set--which includes three songs written by guitarist Bobby G--is a new version of the funky tour de force "Leader of the Band. This song features Sheila and the E Family Band (father Pete and brothers Peter Michael and Juan) as well her former mentor, Prince, on piano. "I love playing this song," says Sheila E., "so I re-recorded it and left some of Prince on there.
...
Family, faith and music were guiding forces for Sheila E. growing up in the Bay Area.
...
In addition to being weaned on Latin jazz and Motown, Sheila E. was exposed to a diverse array of Bay Area acts. Those influences ranged from the rock of Jefferson Airplane and the Grateful Dead to the R&B/pop of the Pointer Sisters and the funk of Sly & the Family Stone. "I used to sit on the corner outside of the local community center with Twinkies and 7-Up listening to Sly and Larry Graham rehearse," remembers Sheila E. "The sounds of the Bay Area molded me."
...
Following a Bay Area gig in the late `70s, Sheila E. met mentor Prince backstage. Their Purple Rain recording sessions--including her vocals on the 1984 classic "Erotic City"--morphed into launching her solo career that same year.
...
Sheila E. was also among the roster of stars chosen to perform at the recent Kennedy Center Honors whose 2013 honorees included artists Herbie Hancock, Billy Joel and Carlos Santana.
...
Away from the spotlight, music doubles as a source of healing and giving back for Sheila E. In tandem with the city of Oakland, she and her Elevate Hope organization will stage the first annual "Elevate Oakland" benefit concert in February, 2014.
...
dominated industry exacted a personal price--several years ago Sheila E. publicly acknowledged she was an abuse survivor.
"The book was the beginning of the healing," says Sheila E. "I'd talked about working in a male-dominated industry in my ministry and addressed it in some of the song lyrics I'd written. But it was challenging to sit down and write about it in detail for the book. No one in my household told me I couldn't play drums because I was a girl. It wasn't until I was outside of the house and playing sessions. But through pain comes realization, understanding and the opportunity to help others overcome those challenges."
After ringing in 2014 in concert with Sergio Mendes on New Year's Eve at Disney Hall, Sheila E. is now ready for her Icon debut.
...
I started all this as Sheila Escovedo then became this persona named Sheila E. Now Sheila E. and Sheila Escovedo are the same person, still making music that comes from the heart."
