SHEILA V "First Performance"
Very so often you come upon someone with talent. On a day to day basis I check my email and there are numerous emails from artists from all over the world. Unfortunately I don't have time to go through them all, but I try my best. Music of course is something I truly love, so if there is something good out there I want to hear it and not miss the opportunity. For intense, I know this artist who is truly dedicated to what she does. She has reached out to me and I gave her my input on this music industry and so forth. The way I see the scene in Chicago is like Life, its what you make of it. Every time I think of anything, the first thing that comes to mind, is "Quality Over Quantity" I've been in this game for over two decades. I say to myself, I should of been made it. All the people in my crew and family don't think I lack, but I do. I found myself in a position where I wanted to just be ordinary. Then when I hear that, I'm like, that is a joke, then I work harder... Anyhow, this female is talent you don't see every day. I see her getting better and better at what she does. One day she will be that artist you love. Her name is "SHEILA V" Her first performance is tonight at Chicago By Night! Check out the Flyer! Also be sure to check her out on here on soundcloud. http://soundcloud.com/sheila-villa
