Sheila inherited her father's
vocal chords and puts them to use in her fun filled
concerts. She sings not only her original songs, but
also those made famous by her father. She is
accompanied by a full band and will also share some of her
story between songs.
Alternately, Sheila can
also be a keynote speaker at your event as she shares her
powerful and dramatic life story. Her past is a
tumultuous one: sexual abuse as a child, imprisonment, a 15
year crack-cocaine addiction, custody loss of her five
children and physical violence. Compounding this was the
fact she was a daughter of the legendary Ray Charles! At
19, she defied her father and pursued music. Demonstrating
her commitment and talent, her father eventually brought her
into his studio and produced several songs.
However, when her father stood
at the height of his career, adored worldwide, Sheila was
living the darkest hour of her life and headed to federal
prison, a two-time loser. While her music career waned, she
gathered a lifetime of experiences.
Behind the Shades message
inspires audiences with her
many stories and life challenges, her life as Ray Charles’s
daughter and her personal growth through it all. Sheila
also performs a few songs as a part of this heart tugging
