Quincy Jones Presents Sheléa, w/ SJSU Jazz Orchestra

Monday, February 24, 2020, 1:00 AM


Schedule:
5pm SJZ High School All Stars
6pm Sheléa with the SJSU Jazz Orchestra

Sheléa’s sultry sound is an exciting oasis in an age of auto-tune; blending traditional pop, jazz, R&B and soul, she brings a contemporary edge to classics and a classic touch to contemporary pop standards.

Sheléa began as a songwriter/vocalist with legendary producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. This early experience led to writing and producing for Chanté Moore’s album Love the Woman and recording vocals on major motion picture soundtracks for Hotel Rwanda, Akeelah and the Bee and Be Cool. Sheléa’s debut album Love Fell On Me was released in 2014, featuring heavyweights Stevie Wonder, Brian McKnight and Narada Michael Walden.

In 2012, Sheléa performed at the White House to honor composers Burt Bacharach and Hal David with the Gershwin Prize. Then, in 2015, she headlined a tour with Kirk Whalum, Gerald Albright and Norman Brown, and soon after joined mentor Stevie Wonder for his Songs in the Key of Life tour. In 2016, Sheléa returned to the White House to perform with Anthony Hamilton as part of PBS’ Smithsonian Salute to Ray Charles. Then, in 2017, Sheléa had the distinct honor of being selected by Quincy Jones to be the first vocalist for his jazz club Q’s Bar and Lounge at the Palazzo Versace Dubai where she performed a month-long residency. In 2012, she joined Annie Lennox, Herbie Hancock, Joan Osborne, Patti Austin and the South African Children’s Choir at the Kennedy Center to perform for the UN International AIDS Conference. Most recently, in 2019, Sheléa starred in the concert special QUINCY JONES PRESENTS: SHELÉA broadcast on PBS. Soon after this, she released her much-anticipated third album Pretty World: Through the Eyes of Alan and Marilyn Bergman (Breath of Life Records/Universal).
