Why I have opened the window!

Amerykah has turned a corner and we should all turn with it. I have thoughts ideas and suggestions but I also have patience and desire for us to be whole and one. I have been speaking a lot lately of the human condition and the generations of Black Americans. i will entertain any and all conversation as long as we can be respectful and grown up. Let the healing begin......

Tuesdays Invitation!

Sheila Escovedo was born and raised in Oakland California. She is a musician best known as the drummer for Prince under the name Sheila E.

There is something about the drums and drummers with me. I think it must be something buried in my DNA cause being a drummer is another one of those professions that makes you sexy to me. Sheila comes from a rich musical family. Her father, uncles, cousins, and brothers are all musicians. While most are familiar with her thru her most popular song “The Glamorous Life” as well as Sheila’s work touring with Prince back in the 80’s Sheila has continued on with her career. She has worked with the Beatle Ringo Starr, Gloria Estefan, and Lynn Mabry formerly of “The Brides of Funkenstein”. She also runs a charitable organization, Elevate Hope, out of her home base in LA. At 50 this woman shows no signs of slowing down, and that makes me just a little happy!

So Sheila E., please accept this invitation to the Dinner party of the year. Your opinion, your diversity, and your jazz are more than welcome! (One of your albums will probably be in rotation in the background anyway so you won’t have to perform!)

Of all of the women associated with Prince, Sheila was always my favorite. Even at 50 (really? 50?) she is still hot.
