Sheila E

Season 4, Episode 1 of 6

World-class drummer and percussionist Sheila E.'s credits read like chapters in a music-history book: Prince, Lionel Ritchie, Marvin Gaye, Gloria Estefan, Ringo Star, and Beyonce - just to name a few. The Grammy-nominated artist performs her influential hits "The Glamorous Life," "A Love Bizarre," and "The Belle of St. Mark," as well as "One Nation Under a Groove" and a tribute to her long-time partner and friend, Prince. Sheila Escovedo is a fearless multi-instrumentalist, who attacks her performance with enviable energy; even inviting members of the audience to dance on stage with her. During her interview on THE KATE, she recounts growing up in a famously musical family, her relationship with Prince, and her long-term healing process after being assaulted as a very young child.
