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.
