London-based singer-songwriter Sharlene-Monique, whose silky emotive soulful tones took flight during her church-filled childhood, has recently released her first single titled ‘You‘. Emotive visuals, together with a cleverly constructed piano instrumental from international Jazz extraordinaire, Robert Mitchell makes for the perfect source of musical inspiration.
A media performance graduate, Identity Drama School attendee and founder of award nominated blog and empowerment platform Be Uniquely You, Sharlene-Monique is now successfully tackling a new kind of creative challenge; sharing her personal message of self-acceptance, self-love and self-empowerment to any and all who will lend their ear to her first release.
The multi-skilled musician hails from a past of singing dancing and teaching across the UK and Europe and has successfully earned her stripes in the lead up to a timely decision to begin practising what she had so confidently shared to others for a number of years. Starting off her campaign with a very successful headline & support promo tour around the UK, Sharlene is left with just two shows remaining in Glasgow and is finishing off in the city of London.
Speaking of her music video for her debut single ‘You’, Sharlene-Monique says, “I’m really excited to be releasing music that I feel so passionate about. I really hope people connect with the message of the song. The video stirred up so many emotions inside because it reflects elements of my past.”
The song was written by Sharlene-Monique and produced by her husband Chris Morris. Mixed by Grammy-Award winning mix engineer Alan Branch, ‘You‘ tells a heartwarming tale of a young lady metamorphosing through a series of personal challenges, and her journey to discovering, accepting and enjoying her true self.
