<![CDATA[Streets Shed Tears By IceCube Feat. Shameia Crawford]]>Sun, 02 Dec 2018 00:36:49 GMThttp://whenwespeaktv.com/events_andmore/streets-shed-tears-by-icecube-feat-shameia-crawfordWhen We Speak TV is always super excited to hear about the great things that our previous guests and friends are doing and how they are growing and developing their careers. 

Recently, we were checking our Google Alerts and noticed that there was an alert for Shameia Crawford, who is a very special person to us.  She has been a special guest on our talk show When We Speak with Jermaine Sain, a guest on our What Do YOU Speak? segment, 

​and a performer at the annual Jazz In The ​Alley Concert Series that we are one of the sponsors of. After review the alert, we notice that Shameia was featured on the new album, Everythang's Corrupt by Ice Cube.   

Picture
​Yes!  
You read it correctly!
Picture

  Shameia Crawford is featured on Ice Cube's new song, Streets Shed Tears.  
For those that are familiar with Shameia's career, she has released music of her own and has sang background for other great singers like Angie Stone, so now to be featured with Ice Cube is a great achievement.  

​The song is produced by Grammy winning producer, Magnedo7, who is also Shameia's husband.  
When We Speak TV would like to congratulate both Shameia Crawford and Magnedo7 on this opportunity and we can't wait to share more great news from them soon!  Thanks for being apart of the When We Speak TV family.

<![CDATA["...Blessing and a curse" says Shameia Crawford]]>Tue, 13 Nov 2018 03:00:00 GMThttp://whenwespeaktv.com/events_andmore/blessing-and-a-curse-says-shameia-crawfordWho 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. ​
