The rising pop star Shanice is gearing up for the release of her debut single, the synth pop “I Got You.”
The 21 year old Los Angles-based and German born pop artist has always made music part of her life, writing her first song at the age of 4. At the age of 14, she competed in the German version of the nationally televised and worldwide franchise The Voice Kids. Shanice finished as runner-up among a competition field of over 2,000 singers, and the experience helped to solidify her passion for music, as well as a few fan pages along the way.
After high school, Shanice moved to Surrey, England to attend the very exclusive performing arts boarding school Hurtwood House, on their highest scholarship, which she earned over many other qualified candidates. Hurtwood House is considered one of the most exclusive private performing arts schools in the world, with alumni including Emily Blunt, Hans Zimmer, and many more. While there, Shanice studied music and performance, and she continued to write and record her own songs.
After graduating from Hurtwood House, Shanice went on to study music at Leeds Conservatoire, receiving her Bachelor’s degree in Pop Music. While there, she connected with Mark Feist, famed producer (Beyonce, Mary J. Blige, John Legend, etc) and Hitmakers Entertainment Label Head, who signed her immediately upon graduation.
Speaking on her music and writing, Shanice say, “I would describe my music as a relief for emotions. Every feeling, or memory you can’t put into words because it is too overwhelming, that is what I aim for my music to express. I want my songs to give a voice to all those sentiments that are so heartachingly powerful that you cannot describe them. I put my heart into all of my songs, so I hope with some of the things I address lyrically, I can help people and inspire them.”
With “I Got You,” the singer/songwriter’s voice is sweet and angelic, similar to that of Billie Eilish meets Ariana Grande, while the music and beat is more like The Weeknd meets Beyonce meets Ariana Grande. The upbeat and electric song is an anthem of empowerment to loving yourself, to taking hold of that positive view of yourself and not feeling bad about it.
