More Music @ The Moore
14th Annual More Music @ The Moore
May 8, 2015
STG's signature youth music program, More Music @ The Moore celebrates its 14th year, with international superstar Sheila E. The program is for one night only, on Friday, May 8th, at the Historic Moore Theatre. This will be Sheila E.'s first time as Music Director for the program, which brings young musicians from diverse music styles to make music together.
After 40 years in the business, the accomplished and much sought after Sheila E's credits read like chapters in a music history book: Ringo Starr, Marvin Gaye, Prince, Beyonce, Herbie Hancock, Diana Ross, Lionel Richie, Gloria Estefan and George Duke. She is also an Emmy and Grammy Award-nominated singer/songwriter behind the seminal hits "The Glamorous Life" and "A Love Bizarre," and a multi-instrumentalist who is equally proficient on guitar and bass. She is also known for her fierce and dynamic stage performances and is constantly on the road either as a solo artist or as a member of a superstar band, i.e. her performance with The Ringo Starr All Star Band. Her dad is the legendary percussionist Pete Escovedo and her godfather is Latin star Tito Puente.
Last year, Sheila E released her first Cd in 12 years, appropriately entitled, ICON. Her autobiography, The Beat Of My Own Drum, was also released last year as a co-project with her album.
"I am excited to mentor these young artists who are a part of More Music. I find it inspiring to work with up and coming talented musicians to help them achieve their dreams. Any time I can give back to the future of music, I'm there," says Sheila E.

“I liked the way every single person up there is a completely different individual from way different backgrounds but music brings us all together and creates an unexplainable bond and appreciation for art.” – MM@M Musician, Age 18
