The 25 Greatest Afro-Latino Musicians of All Time !!! ( Sheila E. )

Sheila E., 54

SLIDE 9 OF 25

Born Sheila Escovedo, the Mexican and Creole drummer and percussionist dropped the extra syllables once she met Prince in the 1970s. The musician was greatly inspired by her godfather Tito Puente, who she would watch perform as a little girl. She has had collaborations with everyone from Gloria Estefan to Juan Luis Guerra. Sheila also prides herself as a philanthropist and started the Elevate Hope Foundation, which helps abused children receive therapy through music.

Peace ... & Stay Funky ...

she was Sheila E long before she met Prince, listen to Dukey Stick you will here it there. Prince didn't name her.

Congrats to Sheila! My computer won't load the rest of the list, but I'm curious to see who else is on there. Top 25 is high praise.

Well she came in at number 9. Celia Cruz was number one.

Ms. Cruz definitely deserves to be high list, number one? sure, why not.
