My name is Sonya E. Henderson (fka) formerly known as Mae B. I am now an Indie, unsigned, independent international recording, performing Artist, co-producer and singer/song writer, ex- professional basketball player and ex-school teacher/coach.
I played on the first professional women's basketball team National Women's Basketball Association (NWBA) in Charlotte, NC. in the States, which is now called the (WNBA) Women's National Basketball Association. Later I went to Europe and played on several professional women's Division One basketball teams for several years. A team in Brussels Belgium and in Aix En Provence France. I also taught/coached at an International School in Waterloo Belgium called St.John's International School and taught and coached basketball several years in the Public School system in the USA.
I am the CEO/Founder of my own Independent Record Label "Ladies Wit Game" Inc. which also promotes and gives tribute to female basketball players globally. I am the CEO/Founder of my Non-Profit" Never Stop Dreaming Inc." This organization will in the future be set up to work with our today's youth in staying focused on the positive and realizing what their God given gifts, talents and skills are. Also pursuing their dreams and goals in a positive way and creating the right strategy and game plan to make their dreams and goals become a reality. Also focussing on directing and assisting our today's youth into becoming healthy, happy, successful and prosperous adults.
While in Europe I reconnected with my passion for music and the very first song I wrote, sung, co-produced and performed, "ATM OZ FEAR" featuring Mae B became #1 on the dance charts in several European countries such as Germany, Holland (Netherlands), UK,(United Kingdom) Italy, Spain, Belgium, Australia, France, etc.
Since returning to the States to care for elderly family members, I've put together a neo-soul/R&B/jazz full length CD called "Dimensions Of Love Vol.1" which was produced by Roderick Carter Sr. of Nia Radio and Michael Charles Bryant. My songs are distributed through CD Baby.Com who distributes globally to internet stores like, Itunes, Rhapsody, Spotify, Amazon, Shazam, Deezer, etc. I have also completed a full length CD called Ladies With Game(Ladyballers) which promotes and gives tribute to women playing basketball all around the world. I have released a single and video called "A Positive Flow" which shows our today's youth showcasing their God given gifts and talents and promoting a positive flow, which can be viewed on Youtube and my own personal website as well. I have several professional videos promoting other music projects which can be viewed on my website www.sonyaehenderson.com and youtube.com/sonyaehenderson.

Some listeners compare my song "Candy" to the style of the late great Phyllis Hyman and this is an honor to me. Thanks to the help of my adorable little lady ballers. I have released a new version of my song/video giving tribute to women basketball players worldwide, past present and future which also showcases our today's youth in a positive vibe.

I also did a remix of my international hit song, "ATM OZ FEAR with world famous producer Serge Ramaekers of www.711-productions.com, which you can find on my European Dance Album "A New Day". Also Serge Ramaekers did remixes for Beyonce, Brittney Spears, the late Freddy Mercury, and Cher's last dance song.
