thekate sheilae 603x452Friday, November 8 at 8 pm on KPJK TV in the South Bay. 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.
