Now the tables have turned.  Rasheeda's strong songwriting, lyrical flow and powerful vocals have earned her the crown of "The Queen of Street Soul Rock".

This dynamic artist believes in giving back to the community resulting in a proclamation from the NYC’s  Lt. Governor David Patterson acknowledging her tireless dedication and service in raising awareness by funding an Anti-Domestic violence campaign.  With a continuously growing diverse fan base, it is inevitable that she will soon become a household name.
