Sheila E. Performs ‘The Glamorous Life’ at 2015 Black Girls Rock [Video]

Sheila E. kicked off the Black Girls Rock festivities with a rousing introduction. The “Queen of percussion” instantly commanded the crowd’s attention with a exhilarating performance of her classic 1984 hit “Glamorous Life.”

The Oakland, Calif., native looked to have not lost a step and was hitting on all cylinders during her set. The R&B legend ended her performance with a epic drum roll and by kicking over her cymbals in an enthralling display of artistic passion.

Overall, Sheila E. brought the house down in grand fashion and set the tone for what would be an eventful night.

Sheila E. is an accomplished musician and vocalist who emerged on the music scene after linking up with Prince and collaborating on his classic Purple Rain album. The 57-year-old percussionist went on to enjoy a successful solo career, releasing seven albums and a number of hit singles. Still active on the music scene, Sheila E. may be decades removed from her heyday, but if her performance on Black Girls Rock was any indication, she could still give any new jack a run for their money.
