      Sheila E -

      Sheila was obviously influenced by her caption:father Latin jazz legend and timbalero Pete Escovedo (then band leader of the influential band Azteca) while watching him rehearse. At 5 years old, she made her concert "debut" at the former Sands Ballroom in Oakland, as she was invited on stage by her father to play a solo in front of an audience of 3,000. At that moment, Sheila knew exactly what she wanted to do: she was going to be a percussionist.

      From age 17, Sheila has recorded and toured extensively with renowned artists such as Babyface, Billy Cobham, Natalie Cole, George Duke, Pete Escovedo, Gloria Estefan, Marvin Gaye, Herbie Hancock, Stevie Nicks, Patti LaBelle, Cyndi Lauper, Prince, Lionel Richie, Diana Ross, Ringo Starr, Tito Puente, Don Was, Stevie Wonder and countless others, but to name a few.

      Her last CD release "Heaven" is an enchanting combination of adult contemporary, funk, jazz and inspirational tracks.

      Miguelito

      At the young age of 14, Puerto Rican singer Miguelito, has a lot to be proud of. As the caption:youngest person to win a Latin Grammy, and about to debut his eighth album early next year, he may just give young stars like Justin Bieber a run for his money!
