"...Blessing and a curse" says Shameia Crawford

Who is Shameia Crawford?  Some may simply classify her as a Soul or R&B artist but I believe the essence of her artistry is rooted much deeper.  Shameia first displayed her talents to her local church congregation and by the age of 5, knew that she wanted to be a singer.  By the age of 17, she released an independent album.  In addition, to such a great accomplishment at a young age, she continued her pursuit of a musical career at Winston-Salem State University, earning a degree in music
​Like the soul singers of the past, her music combines elements of Gospel, R&B, and Jazz, but what keeps her unclassifiable is her personal technique of impelling the hearts of audiences with her voice.  In 2014, she sang her way into the hearts of America on ABC’s Rising Star.  


Picture
​On the day that I spoke with Shameia about her music, I recall her personality being as warm as her vocals. Her smile illuminated the room and she was completely humble, yet confident, in her musical abilities.  

Shortly into the conversation, I recognized her aspiration to capture the emotions of every audience that she stands in front of.  “I believe in my voice and I believe that I have something to offer that no one else does”, says Shameia.  Indeed, she has a special gift and it is considerably identifiable whether she is singing background vocals for legendary soul artists like Angie Stone, accompanying gospel singers like Vashawn Mitchell, or performing her original music. ​

Jae Franklin speaks Love and Self Love!!


Singer Jae Franklin sits down with When We Speak TV for a segment of What Do YOU Speak?
During the segment, Jae shares her thoughts on love, self love, and the death of her father.

MORE ABOUT JAE FRANKLIN
Dynamic songstress Jae Franklin is a citizen of the world. Her curiosity about the interconnectedness of people has led her to perform in over 20 countries from Ethiopia to Dubai. No stranger to pop stardom, Jae toured as a background vocalist for Grammy Award winner Melanie Fiona and eventually began performing at a host of reputable venues across the world as a solo artist. Franklin sure knows her stuff and now its time for her to get in the minds of the masses.

Jae was a 80s baby. She grew up in one of the most dynamic eras of music when R&B, house, electro, and hip hop increased in popularity.

Born and raised in Houston, Texas, Jae’s father exposed her to the blues - the likes of B.B. King and Bobby “Blue” Bland, balanced out with greats like Shirley Caesar and Michael Jackson.
Jae also shared her mother’s love of contemporary pop and soul music, admiring the music of Whitney Houston, Gladys Knight, Patti LaBelle, and Michael Bolton. Today, Jae is inspired by legends like Angelique Kidjo, Jamiroquai, Stevie Wonder, and Sade. It’s no wonder her music sounds the way it does.
Since 2010, Jae has given the world a taste of what’s next. Her voice can be heard on countless collaborations across the web. Her cover of Jamiroquai’s “Morning Glory” was praised by the British band and featured on their official Facebook page. Her collaborations and solo projects have been applauded by esteemed websites like VIBE, MOOVMNT, Sampleface, and Groovement. Her new single ‘Music & Love,’ premiered on reputable websites like Indie Shuffle and URB.
Franklin is well on her way to cementing herself among the soul and pop greats that have influenced her. Her new self-titled EP, “JAE FRANKLIN,” was released on Dec 8, 2017 and features production by Vicente Espi. “JAE FRANKLIN EP” features the lead singles, ‘Skeleton’ and ‘Fools Lane,’ Jae Franklin is set for an impressive year.
