I just caught Sheila E. on tonight's episode of Dancing With The Stars and what an amazing artist she is!  Sheila E. is indeed a multi-faceted drummer, percussionist, vocalist, songwriter, performer, arranger, producer, composer, instrumentalist and humanitarian. Her gifts have brought joy on the world and have made her one of today's brightest talents, and she continues to be one of our most treasured stars. Sheila has recorded and toured extensively with renowned artists. In 1983, Sheila caught the attention of Prince and changed her name to "Sheila E.," and Prince helped her record her first solo album, The Glamorous Life. The first single from the album, The Glamorous Life, written, performed, and directed by Sheila E., was released in the spring of 1984 and earned popular and critical acclaim. This single went on to receive multiple Grammy and American Music Award nominations, and won MTV's Best Video Award. Her last CD release Heaven (2001) is an enchanting combination of adult contemporary, funk, jazz and inspirational tracks. Her most recent collaboration is entitled Now And Forever with her family - the E Family, and it features appearances by Earth Wind & Fire, George Duke, Gloria Estefan, Rafael Saadiq, and Joss Stone.
