It’s always been about the voice for Shanice. Boasting a five-octave range, which she handles with beauty and ease, Shanice began her career scatting with the late great legendary Ella Fitzgerald for Kentucky Fried Chicken at the tender age of 8 years old. At age of eleven, she would be discovered by John McClain, of A&M records as she performed in the musical “Get Happy”, the music of Harold Arlen, at the Westwood Playhouse. She went on to become the grand champion of Star Search that same year. Her first album, “Discovery” on the A&M label, released when Shanice was just fourteen, would garner two urban hits, “Can You Dance?” and “No Half Stepping”. It was her worldwide smash, I Love Your Smile, a number one pop hit in twenty two countries, which would bring her a Grammy nomination, Germany’s Golden Lion Award and international stardom at the age of eighteen! Shanice would become the very first recording artist to perform on the “Tonight Show” with Jay Leno.
