F.S.: Siaira Shawn
I would love to one day collaborate musically with her.

here is her bio which you can find on her myspace page:

Siaira Shawn is a 23-year-old singer/songwriter/performer/youth worker born and raised in San Francisco, California. She is also in the process of starting a company called B.G.C. (Black Grrl Crew) with her best friend Belinda Bellinger. B.G.C. seeks to uplift and empower black girls/women and women of color through fashion and art.

She started singing at the ripe old age of three and has continued ever since. Her defining music moment came in elementary school when she played Alice in Alice in Wonderland and her solo received a standing ovation. From then on she knew she wanted to make performing her life. She attended San Francisco School of the Arts with a concentration in theatre. She attended Howard University and recently graduated from San Francisco State University with a degree in Communication Studies. She has performed and continues to perform all around the Bay Area at movement events, graduations, step shows, open mikes, candlelight vigils, club venues, and several colleges including San Francisco State, UC Berkeley, USF, and Cal State Monterey Bay. She has shared stages with performers such as Goapele, Bilal, Kindred, Dwele, Ise Lyfe, Zion I, The Attik, and Jennifer Johns. She is currently performing as part of local artist Deja B.'s band, she works with the entertainment group Famillite the producer Mezmetic, and with local artist Will Hammond Jr.
