ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“SHANG” a native Washingtonian heralded by fans and critics alike as the vocal 8th wonder of the world. Shang's humble beginnings started much the same as her peers in the powerful world of gospel music through traditional singing in the church choir. Shang’s vocal gift began in the late 1940’s with her grandmother Louvenia Carroll who was a member of the Legendary Clara Ward Singers. Throughout the years, Shang and her family have laid a tremendous mark on the gospel world, spreading the gospel up and down the east coast.

At an early age, Shang decided to branch out into other aspects of music. This continued into her late teens and early twenties where she molded herself into a well rounded and diverse vocalist in all aspects of music. Several artists and management agencies began to notice her as a young vocalist with an excellent natural ear for music. Before long she began receiving requests to sing background and fill in spots for various artists in the local area. She was quickly picked up by international recording artist, Nathan Heathman of Washington DC, who had been the musical director of the Great Phyllis Hyman until her untimely departure. Shang’s accomplishments can only be expressed by naming some of the great venues at which she has performed; the Legendary Blues Alley in Washington DC, DAR Constitution Hall in Washington DC, Hampton Jazz Festival in Hampton Va., Madison Square Gardens in New York, Aretha Franklin’s Birthday Celebration along with” Mr. Personality” himself Lloyd Price. Bohemian Caverns in Washington DC, St. Lucia Festival, Sands Hotel in Atlantic City, Star Plaza in Indianapolis, Indiana, Zanzibar Blue w/ Nathan Heathman in Philadelphia, Pa., Civic Center in Florence, SC, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Potawatomi Casino in Milwaukee, and many more.

Another way to know the greatness of Shang’s talent is to mention some of the people she has worked closely with and received praise from; The Legendary Jean Carne, Phil Perry, Norman Connors, Jennifer Holiday, Meli’sa Morgan, Jerry Butler, Ben E. King, Gene Chandler, Lloyd Price, Chaka Khan, Yolanda Adams, Marcus Johnson, Al Johnson, Ollie Woodson (of the Temptations), Nancy Wilson, the Late Great Nathan Heathman, Maurice Chevalier Davis and Mike Gamble (her producers) and many, many others.

Shang's quiet strength and elegance can be heard in her words, “To be a gifted artist does not solely rely on your ability to sing, but also relies on your spirituality, your love for the music, passion, personality and always keeping God First in everything you do.”

Beautiful
Shang's debut is no less than what I've expected of her after seeing her so often with Nathan Heathman. She was great then and now the world can hear what we have been listening to for years.

This cd is definitely a "must buy". It reels you in the first time you hear it and appeals to a real music lover.

Troy Thomas

Shang ~ Beautiful
What an appropriate title, to a beautiful woman, a beautiful voice. This is once CD that is great from start to end, in fact I have listened to the tracks for hour on end! I'm sure Ms. Shang will be in good company being compared to some of music's best voice, but you will find that Shang definately has her own sound. Pick this one up, you will not be disappointed!

I saw your performance at the Juneteenth celebration in St. Mary's County on June 21st and was so impressed with your voice and your singing. I'm presently listening to excerpts from CD...nice!!! Also wanted to touch base with you and your manager. I gave you a sample of my Perfect Water to try and was interested in your feedback of this awesome water. Joyce

Fantastic Singer
My boyfriend and I travel from Philadelphia, PA on a Tuesday night to Blues Alley, in Washington,DC to hear this wonderful artist perform live. The show was fantistic, she is a beautiful person with an unbelievable voice. The only issue that I had was that she performed only one of her songs off of the album. That was very disappointing to me. I wanted to hear her sing the album live, I love the album, she sung everyone body else song, but her own, she sung them well, but I wanted to hear her own music. Hopefully if she ever comes to Philadelphia in the near future, she will have taut the band her album by then and she would be able to perform songs off of it. That being said, she is still an outstanding singer and I wish her much sucess for the future.
