Shire’ (Sha-Ray), formally known as Ã¢â‚¬Å“ChinkyÃ¢â‚¬Â, was catapulted into the music industry as the founding member and lead singer of LovHer, the first female group to sign with the legendary hip hop label, Def Jam Records. Although their debut album was never released as a result of conflicting interests, the group was featured on a variety of celebrated media platforms including performances on MTVÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s TRL, The BET Awards and The Lady of Soul Awards. Along with the other members of the group, Shire’ was featured in widely published magazines such as Vibe and Teen People along with an honorable mention in the prestigious Billboard Magazine. While maintaining her obligations to LovHer, Shire also warranted a single on the soundtrack of the box office smash movie, Ã¢â‚¬Å“Rush Hour 2Ã¢â‚¬Â, entitled Ã¢â‚¬Å“Hows It Gonna BeÃ¢â‚¬Â.
Originally discovered by Dru Hills own Sisqo, Shire’ has steadily earned the acclaim of some of the most influential figures in the music industry including Hip Hop mogul, Steve Rifkind. Shortly after the members of LovHer went their separate ways, it was Rifkind who personally offered Shire’ a home on his own label, SRC Records. Armed with a voice often described as having the soul of Aretha Franklin with the conviction of Mary J. Blige, Shire’ has been featured on countless albums for platinum selling artists such as Dru-Hill, Sisqo, DMX, Camron, Method Man and DJ Kay Slay. Along with SRC, Shire’ has cultivated a powerhouse management and production team including Hot City Music Group and Family Ties Entertainment. Shire’ is currently in the studio finishing up her highly anticipated debut album working with multi-platinum selling producers, Midi-Mafia and Grammy award winning producers, DreÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ & Vidal and Carvin & Ivan.
Shire’ is now preparing for the 2010 release of her debut album entitled “Pickin Up Da Pieces,” beginning with the release of her current single, Ã¢â‚¬Å“Love DonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t Fail Me NowÃ¢â‚¬Â, featuring acclaimed Rap artist, Maino.
