A SHERYL BOYD INTERVIEW:
EXCLUSIVE: R & B Singer And Future “Diva” Sheryl Boyd
From a fans perspective, every so often a new and amazing music artist comes onto the music scene and takes
the industry by storm! But, with that talent comes hard work and dedicated long hours in the studio rehearsing
and laying down vocals for songs. Then there are the long hours in the gym training ones body in preparation for performances.
The word “Diva” puts an artist in selective company and you must have a competitive spirit,
patience and a tireless and proven work ethic to separate oneself in a competitive music industry.
If an artist can have the balance of an great work ethic, attitude and support from the “Unstoppable Machine“, when it comes to setting the
pace for talent and growth, you can have the Recipe For A Successful Music Career.
The key to this unparalleled success in the music industry lies both in the talent of the artist, the supporting
cast that helps with the development and the dedicated team of writers, producers, vocal coaches,
PR, choreographers, band members, engineers and mangers who focus on the incredible
growth of the artist and it reflects the business and in the music that’s made.
saying that, Woodlawn Post’s Adrian Mitchell got the opportunity to interview up and coming R & B singer Sheryl
Boyd, who was born and raised in South Carolina and resides in Atlanta. The talented R & B singer Sheryl Boyd recently
