Encouraging Female Drummers is Just the Beginning for Sheila E

Sheila E recently helped celebrate Chuck Brown as part of a tribute concert. The world-famous drummer told the Washington Post that she had planned to become an Olympic runner, but performing with her father at age fifteen changed her goals. Sheila has been a professional drummer for forty years, now, and uses her position to encourage other female percussionists. She has the Elevate Hope Foundation to help kids heal their pain from being abused and uses any platform she can to be approachable to fans. The drummer is working on a new album and her autobiography will be out soon. Read more here: Sheila E., an inspiration to drummers of all ages and genders
