Shae’s melodic vocals graced legendary venues such as BB King, Rhythm Kitchen, Love Noise and Lucy Blu in addition to major music festivals such as the Spanish festival and the African Street Festival.


    This natural talent continues to practice live arts in true renaissance fashion, performing in urban theatre and currently recording her latest R&B album. Shae’s critically acclaimed team includes Grammy nominated producers Alvin Garrett, whose musical catalog includes Joe, Johnny Gill, and Ruben Studdard, producer Roger Ryan whose production and performance credits include Whitney Houston, Wynonna Judd, Faith Evans, Oleta Adams and Kirk Franklin and Michael J Gaines, whose musical credits includes Cher, Kelly Price, Eric Clapton, Anointed, The Pointer Sisters and Shirley Murdock.

    Middle Schools Strip Searvhing?


    Two families are questioning the use of strip searches at a school in California.


    A 13-year old and a 15-year old girl were both searched for drugs at Serrano Middle School.


    They say a male security guard patted them down and was in the room when the girls removed their clothes and bras.


    “She was asked to take off her jacket, take off her shirt, take off her T-shirt, unfasten her bra and pull her bra out — literally pull her bra out from the bottom and shake her breasts,” said the girl’s mother.


    A quarter of a gram of marijuana was found in one of the girls’ bags.


    The girls’ parents say it could have been planted because the bag was unsupervised for 40-minutes.


    Linda Bardere, a spokesperson for the San Bernardino School District, confirmed to the San Bernardino Sun that the district is looking into the search.“We adhere to our board policy and (California Education Code) when a search is conducted. We take all parent concerns and complaints seriously, however due to student confidentiality we can’t comment further,” said Bardere in a statement.
