Shanelle's New Music and Shows in NYC & Boston! / by Shanelle Gabriel

Happy Belated New Year!

Am I the only one still writing "09" on my dates? It's 2010! Welcome to the new year. 2009 was a diffcult year for many, but I believe it provided us with prospective and lessons so that we all can grow into who we're supposed to be. I've spent the last few weeks prepping & planning, and I know blessings are on their way to all of us!

Last week was filled with a lot of fundraisers for the crisis in Haiti. I encourage you all to text "Yele" to 501 501 to donate to Wyclef's Yele Organization. I've been working a lot with Liz Whitney (a friend and Yele representative) and Wyclef has been doing some amazing things (regardless of what the media tried to say). Help if you can!



Before I ask you to go anywhere, I'm giving you a special gift...A NEW SONG. Till Monday night, you can download my new song "More Than One of a Kind" for FREE from Just click on the box. Feel free to share it with anyone you think would enjoy it. And if you like it, let me know!
