Sheena O. Murray - R&B Artist 3:15pm
Without echoing words that were said before or painting a picture that you may have eyeballed numerous times, we’d like to introduce to you: Sheena O. Murray. Her story did not begin at the age of five as a musical child prodigy, nor was she a member of the church choir, belting out notes every Sunday. Hers is a simple story, not one of particular intrigue or “wow”. It is a story of a girl who meets music, falls in love with music, marries music, bears the seed of this union with melodies and lyrical prowess.
A Jamaican native, Sheena O. Murray migrated to Brooklyn, New York at the age of five and then moved to Florida at the age of nine. She began her musical journey while in High School as a theater geek performing in stage plays and musicals. She then transitioned, after those four years of campy musical theater performances, to vocal endeavors.
This will be Episode 1 for R B Waters on Everything.
It will serve two functions, firstly to test the capabilities of my iPhone for broadcasting.
Secondly, to introduce myself and my show.
I am R B Waters, I plan to have shows where no subject is off limits. Hence, R B Waters On EVERYTHING.
This show will be me "getting my feet wet" and beginning what hopefully will prove to be broadcast excellence for years to come.
Some topics on this broadcast may include the Bowe Bergdahl situation and other failures of the Obama Administration. No topics have been fully mapped out yet, but this situation is on my mind so it will most likely come up.
I intend to improve equipment over time, this first show will be created using my iPhone 4S through Verizon Wireless (Prepaid, so I get screwed out of Visual Voicemail features, but, I digress).
So, welcome and please offer some feedback when you've listened to this.
