Featured in TIR Episode 115 (2 parts): An irrepressible woman with more aliases than an FBI Most Wanted list, except she is most wanted for the unique singing and songwriting abilities that have led to her enjoying a long and successful funk, dance and club music career. Whether billed as Sheila Horne, Sheila Washington, Sheila Brody, Blackwood, Amuka Kelly or even a Bride of Funkenstein, this artist’s star power has shined through.

Having gotten her start with George Clinton, she would go on to work with just about every act under the Funk Mob’s umbrella, as well as the Steve Washington-led Aura and Civil Attack, before shifting gears to become an international dance music sensation. She is continuing to release new music and recently recorded with Public Enemy, and has a memoirs book in the works.
