Shelby J. has an interview feature with Ebony which you can access here.

Ebony talks about Shelby working with Mary J. Blige, Carlos Santana, Roy Hargrove, Martin Luther, D’Angelo, Anthony Hamilton, and Prince.

When speaking of Prince she has this to say:

“The greatest ever. Period. Dotcom”

"(Working with Prince) was humbling and awesome! I am so very thankful for his guidance and his support in all that I do. That’s my brother right there! He’s got my back and I sho’ got his!”

This is definitely Shelby's season! We hear that TV and Movie folks have been calling.  They can't resist Shelby's heart and magnetism.

Prince only picks the best and Shelby always reps for the NPG.

She stated:

" The NPG is Home! That's more than just my band…that's my family!"-DocFB

 We just wanted to wish Prince a happy birthday or born day or whatever and say...Thank you for the music and the journey.

Also, earlier this morning, a new Prince song called "Hot Summer" debuted,

The Ebony magazine teaser said "Summer Hotter Than This? We Don't Think So."  There was Internet speculation about a CD being packaged with the Ebony issue although nothing ever told to us about that, one has to wonder if there might have been a plan to do so or something very similiar.

"Hot Summer" was played on his hometown of Minneapolis's radio 93.9     The Current this morning.  They will be playing it again today so check out a great station and listen to the stream for it as for now they will have it.

Coincedence this song drops today?  Prince was born on June 7th, 1958 and would make him 52.  Add the numbers together, they are quite lucky, no?
