Tasheya "Sheya" Campbell was born in Bedford Stuyvesant Brooklyn. She was raised in a family where her mother was a professional Ballet dancer and her father was a musician and a known producerduring the "krush groove" era. Sheya started dancing as one of her mother’s students at the age of 2 and began singing at 6 years old in her church.
Times were hard growing up in her household but there
wasn’t a day that went by where she didn’t use her talents as an outlet. Her mother always said she was a "special kind of child" signing her up for different auditions such as "Aunt Jemima syrup" and Toys r Us commercials. Sheya’s mother watched her grow and when she decided to take the destiny of her talents into her own hands, her mother wasn’t the least bit surprised.
Sheya’s dream is to become a successful singer and actress. She has had the privilege to participate in the Fox5′s "So You Think You Can Dance?" auditions, fashion shows with designers Ecko Red and Azzure Denim ,f.e.d.s magazine, a variety of music videos, an extra in the movie "Bad Company", as well as choreography for shows and events.
Sheya is a very ambitious and goal driven young woman who is so full of life that even on the longest day she is still smiling. Her biggest moment would have to be when she auditioned for "American Idol" (Season 5). She could not afford the cost to go to the audition that was being held in Charleston, SC. It was only two weeks away so she came up with an idea to raise the money. She was overwelmed by the outpouring of support and donations from people all over. She couldnt’t believe that so many people believed in her dreams just as much as she did. Between the efforts of friends and family, the American Idol experience, and all the great friends she made along the way it was a moment in life she would never forget.
Sheya is looking to burst into the entertainment world, ready, willing, and fearless to what success her talents will
