Oh my god! Sheila E. totally slayed the stage alongside her family at the Democratic National Convention on July 28. Prince’s former lover and protege drummed her heart out on the national stage, and it was such a powerful moment! We have all the details, right here.
That was absolutely thrilling! Sheila E showed her support for Hillary Clinton on July 28 by killing it on the drums on the massive stage at the Democratic National Convention. She made the powerful performance into a family affair by bringing her dad and brother along with her, and their drumming, dancing and facial expressions made it perhaps the funnest part of the whole night!
Sheila looked better than ever on the DNC stage, rocking a slimming all black ensemble including a turtleneck and slacks, under a sharp while blazer. Her long black hair was straightened and silky looking, and her dramatic eye makeup made her face really pop. What a show!
Sheila E has had a very rough year in 2016. She lost her former lover Prince when he tragically overdosed and died on April 21, and she was completely devastated. “The meaning of the word loss has taken on a new meaning this day,” she said in a statement. “Thank God love lives forever.” Clearly Hillary’s cause is very important to her, for her to pull herself back up to perform.
TMZ reports that Sheila took the gig to help Hillary gain more support from Latinos. She desperately wanted to show the “fabric and togetherness of the Latin family and community,” so she enlisted the help of her famous dad Pete Escovedo plus her bro Peter to put together a powerful performance that would bring the house down. We think she did an amazing job!
