Tasty and Ease Your Mind




Someone asks, “Shelita, what exactly is it that pushes you forward?” She immediately answers, “I don’t know! I feel as if I’m on the verge of something big you know! Bigger than me in a surreal sort of way! I’m not sure how or when it will happen but I feel it!” explains Alternative R&B singer/songwriter Shelita Vaughns. Perhaps one would feel it’s too much of a cliché to say, "Shelita has that rare IT factor or that she is THE NEXT BIG THING!" Guess what? One would be lying if they said she wasn’t! She is a rare songbird with a classic and timeless sweet, sultry sound. “I feel as if with every 5 steps I take forward there is always something trying to knock me 6 steps back. But for some reason I don’t care, as crazy as it seems I feel as if I’m paying my dues, if you know what I mean,” says Ms. Vaughns, as she rushes off to perform songs from her first project, SWEET THOUGHTS at her cozy Lower East Side regular venue in New York City.
Growing up in Houston, Texas her inspirations have stemmed from greats such as Diana Ross, Sade and Whitney Houston. Her melodic voice and sexy stage presence has enabled her to perform and grace such venues as The Blue Note and perform with the world renowned Negro Ensemble Theater Company in New York City, which paved the way for Hall of Fame Legends such as Denzel Washington, Phylicia Rashad and Sydney Poitier.
Since the completion of her first EP and modest down south tour in Texas, Louisiana, and Atlanta, this Alternative R&B singer has been working on her album appropriately titled, SWEET THOUGHTS. “It’s a collection of live instruments such as trumpet, saxophone, cello, guitar and simple words that speaks so much to me and others. It’s a relatable album that tackles love, peace and happiness literally!” she explains as she walks off the stage in smiles and out of breath. Her jazzy song, Tasty is tantalizing and seductive. “I love performing that song and of course all of my others because it always catches everyone off guard. It’s like I’m so not that girl in the song but I get the chance to be a different person as I’m singing it! Which is fun.” Her vulnerability, authenticity and intimate words allows her performances and her music to convey a naked sound, which in return allows her to embrace the artist within, catapulting this IT factor into what critics are raving is on the verge of becoming the Alternative R&B worlds NEXT BIG THING.
