Watch & Listen
Music legend Quincy Jones named Sheléa “one of the greatest artists of her generation."
Sheléa’s breakout came in 2008 when Take 6, the American a cappella gospel sextet, requested that she sing lead on “Someone to Watch Over Me” for their album, The Standard, which would go on to be nominated for a Grammy Award. That track also caught the ear of music legend Stevie Wonder. When Wonder was asked to sing for the President and Michelle Obama at the White House in May 2012, honoring composers Burt Bacharach and Hal David with the Gershwin Prize, he felt it was a perfect opportunity to showcase Sheléa.
Her rendition of “Anyone Who Had a Heart” featuring Arturo Sandoval on trumpet brought down the house.
Sheléa’s debut album, Love Fell On Me, with Stevie Wonder, Brian McKnight and Narada Michael Walden, featured the single “I’ll Never Let You Go,” which remained on the charts for 22+ weeks.
