Profile Bio Text
Sheila Escovedo (born December 12, 1957, in Oakland, California), known by her stage name Sheila E., is an American musician, perhaps best known for her work with Prince and Ringo Starr. Prince met Sheila at a concert in the early 1980s, when she was performing with her father. After the show, he met her and told her that he and his bassist "were just fighting about which one of us would be the first to be your husband". He also prophetically vowed that one day she would join his band. The two would eventually join forces during the Purple Rain recording sessions. She provided vocals on the B-side to "Let`s Go Crazy", "Erotic City" in 1983/84. After leaving the Prince organization in 1989 (she actually had a medical problem-collapsed lung), Sheila recorded a few more albums, Sex Cymbal, Writes of Passage, and Heaven. However, the albums garnered little attention. This was especially true in the case of Sex Cymbal, since Sheila`s health issues prevented her from touring in order to promote it. In 2002 Sheila appeared on the Beyoncé Knowles song "Work It Out". Sheila E. was the leader of the house band on the short-lived 1998 late night talk show, The Magic Hour, starring Magic Johnson. She played percussion on the Phil Collins cover of "True Colors" in 1998.
