Surprising the audience, Grammy Nominated Pop/R&B Singer, Songwriter, Actress, Dancer, Broadway Star and overall Music Icon Shanice stood on an extended side portion of the stage, where audience members were elated to be in close proximity to. Standing out in an all black sequence, thigh level dress, she was ready to musically nourish us all with a performance we have been craving. Smiles took the place of chatter and she immediately consumed everyone’s focus and attention. With an angelic voice, a hypnotic smile, and a beautiful personality, it was guaranteed to be an epic moment that would be relived over and over in the minds of all the lucky fans who were present for the blessing Shanice gave! On this special night, the location was the Bethesda Blues and Jazz Club in Bethesda, MD., and it mind as well have been sacred ground because the atmosphere Shanice created was magical with an healing element.
Attacking every song with her unique blend of a soft, bright, dramatic coloratura ranged sultry voice, she left no space for anything less than fantastic to pass through the microphone and speakers. With an incredible vocal agility to match, Shanice is a living music instrument because every note hit and melodic choice made is always executed with precision.
On stage she was joined by her long time friend who is also an acclaimed and well respected vocal beast: B. Slade. He humbly offered supporting vocals and gave us life in his solos and their amazing duet performed together. As the night progressed, Shanice gave her all as she performed all of her hits and fan favorites such as: “When I Close My Eyes”, “Yesterday” “I Love Your Smile” (With a go-go feel), “Saving Forever For You” and “Its For You”. She even hit us with her effortless but powerful rendition of Minnie Riperton’s: “Loving You” and Whitney Houston’s: “I Have Nothing” , and ended up giving the audience an encore performing: “I Get Lonely”, (which you can view below).
Shanice was everything we dreamed of her being in person. For everyone there, the experience was personal and heartfelt. There is no doubt she is a living legend who has been highly successful and influential in this music industry for 30 years. To us, she is on the same level vocally as any of the greatest to ever do it! Shanice has always been the whole package and embodies so much talent. We are sure she has sooo much more in her to breakout and stun us in amazement.
As we await all of her future endeavors, we are excited to watch her embrace all of her passions and pull from them to create new music, videos, and any other form of artistic expression she has up her sleeves. She is a business woman who has products such as onesiezbyshanice out for sale now and more exciting things to come. Knowing her background story, it would be wonderful to see her get into motivational speaking as well because her story is very inspiring and definitely motivating.
