BET Experience 2017!

Sheila E, the drummer and percussionist best known for her work with Prince, George Duke and Ringo Starr, made her recording debut with jazz bassist Alphonso on "Yesterday's Dream" in 1976.  Sheila met Prince at a concert in 1978 while performing with her father, Pete Escovedo.  She'd later record in the studio with Prince for the Purple Rain recording sessions, which ultimately blossomed into a brief romantic relationship.  While working with Prince, Sheila provided vocals for his "Let's Go Crazy" and "Erotic City" and released her own album, which included the hit single "The Glamorous Life." In November 2013, she released her seventh studio album Sheila E ICON. Her autobiography was published that same year.
