Shelby J. took over North Carolina radio again for "The Shelby J. Takeover Round 3" from the campus of N.C. A &T State University.
Shelby mixed some Steely Dan along with Toby Mac, D'Angelo, The Eagles, Cameo, and the new joint by Janelle Monae and Erykah Badu.
Shelby also interviewed Sidra Smith, producer of the new documentary "Free Angela & All Political Prisoners".
Shelby is a natural on radio and TV and we will not be surprised if she gets contacted to do more takeovers and perhaps her own show!
Check out the 2 hour show above and show Shelby J. some LOVE.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Q.U.E.E.N. Honey Bee....
Shelby J.'s "North Carolina" featuring Anthony Hamilton and produced by PRINCE is now available for purchase!
Shelby had this to say about the single being released digitally;
The single "NC" will only be available for digital download.
But if folks dig the cover, no worries….the cd artwork will be available with the full length physical "in yo hand" copy Shelby J's 10 song solo debut cd coming out in Spring 2013
Diagnosis: 12-12-12 is starting out very soulful....
Singing at sporting events is nothing for Shelby J., who rocked the highest rated Super Bowl Halftime Show in 2007. On 12-12-12, not only will she be dropping her latest single "North Carolina" featuring Anthony Hamilton, she will be singing the national anthem for the Charlotte Bobcats when they take on the Los Angeles Clippers.
If that is not enough, Charlotte is showing Shelby J. a lot of LOVE as she will be in a documentary highlighting singers and songwriters in and from North Carolina.
The documentary is called "Queen City Forward" and will be held at Packard Place which is located at 222 Church St., Charlotte NC 28202.
We will do what we can to obtain footage of Shelby singing the national anthem and get photos from the event.
Good luck Shelby!-DocFB
Diagnosis: More info on "North Carolina" on 12-12-12. Put yo hands up!

Diagnosis: Tune In Thursday!
A few months ago, after the Trayvon Martin incident, we asked readers of Drfunkenberry.com to send in photos of them in hoodies and we would use it for a future project. That project is a special cover of the Lalah Hathaway "We're All In This Together" song featuring Shelby J., Anthony Hamilton, Take 6 & Crazy Ned.
We caught up with Shelby J recently and talked about Trayvon;
"We must continue to fight for the Justice we need in this World for all of God's children. Trayvon will not be 4gotten or the 100's of other "Trayvon's" that don't get justice."
Also, Shelby told us that the world should get ready for her first upcoming solo album entitled "Just Shelby" and it WILL be released this year.
Shelby's team is currently weighing her many options for who will have the honor of distributing this cd full of as Shelby says "songs with purpose, sayin' somethin', ya dig. Not just rhyming words with no message!"
Shelby believes in true substance over flash in the pan style or "a look" that's here 2day...4gotten about next week! Like Adele said, "She makes music 4 the ears not the eyes". But Ms. Shelby is Very easy on our eyes.
I know folks will feel the depth of soul, struggle, joy, love, determination & experience in her music. She states
I write it, produce it, & stand behind it! A true artist paints their OWN picture."
This being said, I did hear a rumor that some of Shelby's many musical friends may be making guest appearances on her project. But not too many, she says. "I don't get when an artist puts out a record & has a guest artist on like 8 out of 10 songs. I never understood that. Aretha didn't have to do it."
