I’m pretty sure that I met ME’SHELL on the C train in Manhattan going  home from Stuyvesant HS in the East Village/Chelsea the late ’80s.

She told me to remember her name, but I couldn’t pronounce her last name, NDEGEOCELLO…she told me I only needed to remember her first name.

A few years later she became the first artist MADONNA signed onto her label, MAVERICK RECORDS!

I’m listening to a song from her first CD, PLANTATION LULLABIES,  titled “Call Me.”


Another great song from the same album:



This is Me’shell when she collaborated with John Mellencamp in the video for “Wild Night”:


Her most recent work here.
