Sheila E.

Even before Sheila E. garnered international celebrity for 80’s mega hits "The Glamorous Life" and "A Love Bizarre," her father, brothers and extended family were acclaimed musicians, with associations ranging from Santana to Marvin Gaye. Of course, Sheila remains the family’s shining star. Her partnership with Prince on songs like "A Love Bizarre" and "Erotic City" produced plenty of heat on and off stage.  But her rise to the top as a lovely Latina with serious musical chops came with a cost, including serious health issues, and a childhood trauma which would shadow her direction in decades to come. On Unsung, Sheila, her father, and her talented siblings come together to trace the remarkable journey of Oakland’s musical first family.
