Shicara Hollie, singer/songwriter
Shicara Hollie was born in Ft. Worth, Texas and moved to Arlington, Texas at age 4. Throughout childhood, Shicara was no stranger to music. She grew up in the Baptist church where she was exposed to some of the greatest gospel artists such as Kirk Franklin, Darrell and Tonya Blair, and Tamela and David Mann. After attending countless choir rehearsals, she soon discovered her love for music and her talent as a singer.
As Shicara grew older, her mother encouraged her to embrace her gift and share it with others.
She began singing in the church choir and school-related events, performing the National Anthem and other musical favorites. In college, Shicara performed at talent showcases individually and collectively with Voices of Praise Gospel Choir at the University of North Texas.
Though, Shicara prefers not to limit herself to one genre, she enjoys the musical styles of soul, R&B, alternative and jazz music. She defines her personal style as one that uplifts and inspires others – one that touches someone’s mind or heart.
Shicara draws musical inspirations from artists such as Michael Jackson, Gladys Knight, Brandy, Monica, Beyonce, Whitney Houston, John Legend, Ledisi, and influences from Kirk Franklin and Tamela Mann.
“All of the artists are different in their own way—but the thing I love most about them is that they are not afraid to step outside of the box and express their God-given talent,” Shicara says.
It wasn’t long before Shicara’s love for music developed into songwriting. She recently wrote her new single, “Slave to Fear,” released in January 2013. Currently, she performs at local events in Dallas-Ft. Worth and continues to write more songs for her anticipated album.
Shicara lives by the motto, “It’s not about me. It’s about changing lives and inspiring people to live out their purpose.”
