My interview with Sheila at Hispanicize 2014
Sheila headlined the Hispanicize conference in 2014 and accepted the award for Latinavator of the year for her over 30 years in the biz. To watch her in action after admiring both her work on and off the stage for years was truly special. Sheila also happens to be one of the most humble and hard working people I’ve ever met. “It’s pure bliss to do what you love and live your passion out loud. I’m proud of the work that’s being done and excited about where this new musical journey across genres will take me” said Sheila.
