I am GLAD it didn’t WORK OUT the first time says Shekhinah Donnell


SINGER Shekhinah Donnell is having a great time!

The Idols season 8 top six finalist is riding the wave of success with her new single called Back to the Beach, featuring Kyle Deutsch, a former Idols season 10 finalist.

The song is also nominated for this year’s edition of the Metro FM Awards in the best hit single category.

Speaking to SunBuzz, the down-to-earth starlet said she is grateful that her attempts to start a music career just after matric didn’t work out, because that forced her to re-evaluate her strategy.
“The situation forced me to focus on my tertiary education.

“I’m now in my final year at Afda and hopefully next year I will pursue a music career full- time,” she said.
She said she’s in no rush to venture into the music industry full-time, but confessed that she was in studio working on a few singles and collaborations.

When asked how she chooses who to work with, she said:
“The beat is everything.”

“Unfortunately, I can’t work with everyone who approaches me but I choose my collaborations based on the instrumental strength.

“ Locally, my dream collaborations would be with rapper AKA and singer Nonku Phiri. I really hope I get the opportunity to work with them in the near future.”

She described her sound as pop with influences of R&B.

“My plan for the year is to increase my online presence so that my work can be accessed globally and so I can have a larger international audience.”

The Metro FM Awards will take place at the Durban ICC on 27 February and fans can vote for their favourite musicians in their respective categories.
