Sheila E – a name that truly needs no form of introduction. Just hearing her name alone brings about a magical feeling as everyone knows that the name symbolizes a living legend, an icon, and a musical hero. From being one of the most exceptionally talented drummers that has ever walked on this planet, to bringing some incredible girl power to everything that she works on, there are no amount of words to describe just how brilliant Sheila E is. Sheila E is the quintessential musical phenomenon who has captured the hearts of fans through her impeccable talent. She’s brought everyone to “The Glamorous Life” with her highly-acclaimed song and has always been someone that everyone would look up to and aspire to be, and she continues to be just that.
In addition to being a remarkable musician and also a great friend and musical collaborator to the one and only Prince, Sheila E is also someone who is an influential figure and inspiration to everyone. One of Sheila E’s biggest priorities is to give back to others. She co-founded the Elevate Hope Foundation and tries in all ways possible to encourage everyone to follow after their dreams. She is also an author of her own book, The Beat Of My Own Drum. There is no experience quite like seeing Sheila E performing on stage because when you do, you are seeing one of the most consummate musicians ever bringing out her life and passion on that very stage.
Before Sheila E became the outstanding musician she is today, there were many people who inspired her the same way she inspires everyone; and one person especially was her stupendous father, Pete Escovedo. Pete Escovedo is known for making such a great impact in this world as a spectacular musician and percussionist. He has changed the world of music in more ways than imaginable and has contributed a great amount into making the music world what it is today. Pete Escovedo and his daughter, Sheila E are musical geniuses.
