“-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- True star quality is not something that can be learned nor is it something that can be purchased. Your either born with it or you’re not. And for Baltimore’s R&B songstress Shadina, there is no doubt that her and star quality have been soul-mates since birth. One listen to her sultry commanding vocals, and one would think that they are hearing a rendition of the soulful sound of the legendary“Motown era.”Shadina is truly an artist for today, and with her first album, Born 4 This, being released at the top of the year she is making that fact more evident. The lead single off of her Independent debut is the explosive kick/snare serenaded “Good Girls” featuring 90’s Hip-Hop icon Chubb Rock. Reaching over 3 mill views and over 100,000 friends on her Myspace page, the young superstar is looking to increase her following, and raise the musical bar on her rise to prominence. www.blackpower.com”

“11 News reporter Rob Roblin spoke with a local artist on Friday as she prepared for her performance.Baltimore native Shadina is a singer/songwriter/producer and a rising star who has performed at Madison Square Garden, the House of Blues, The Apollo and on BET. She's worked with Alicia Keys, Mary J. Blige, Robin Thicke and Baltimore's own Mario, to name a few,”

“Straight out of Baltimore, Shadina is a rising star right on the brink of accomplishing true national stardom. It was at 13 years old that Shadina got her first real look at stardom. Otis Williams, the coined leader of the legacy that is The Temptations discovered her during one of her performances at Showtime at the Apollo. From that point on Otis would bring Shadina on the road with him, planting her in the audience, and when ready, pull her on the stage to sing a select number of songs. After a wonderful opportunity with Otis Williams, Shadina and her Mother went on to create Like Mother Like Daughter Music Group, name inspired by the fact that mother Topaz has had her hands dirty on the R&B scene as well. Topaz as she is known in the world of R&B has been produced by the team of Teddy Riley and Gene Griffin and has worked with some of the R&B greats”

“You may have seen me post some blogs about this young woman or you may be familiar with her music (“I want u 2″, “Good girls”) or may have seen her on 106&PARK for wild out Wednesday, you may have seen her performing. If you’re new to the bus, don’t hesitate to put your money in the machine and hop on the ride to her journey of success and completing her dreams that she damn well worked hard for. Not only is she an amazing singer, she’s an energetic performer and her heart is bigger than anyone I’ve ever came across with. If you don’t know the name by now, let me introduce you to Shadina Bettis. Also known as Shadina. She is a rising star hailing from Baltimore, Maryland. Not only does she have the good graces of her mother’s looks and charm, she also has a voice just like hers. Well, being born into the good graces, one would not expect otherwise. Shadina is already being compared as the next big thing and surely, she has the vocals and capabilities to become”

“Rising R&B star calls Haymarket home Local By Barbara Simon Source: Gainesville Times TUESDAY, AUGUST 17 2010 Shadina, an R&B singer who lives in Haymarket, literally has singing in her blood. Her mother is a professional singer who sang with Dionne Warwick, Luther Vandross and Whitney Houston. Her uncle is Otis Williams, the only surviving member of the Temptations. A Baltimore native, she attended high school at the Baltimore School for the Arms. From there, she studied classical voice at the Juilliard School. Passionate about R&B music, she left school to focus on that. Her R&B idols include Tina Turner, Janet Jackson, Alicia Keys, Whitney Houston and Beyonce. With her mother managing her career, she began performing. Her first CD, “Born 4 This” has been very popular in the southern United States. ”

“Some might say that that R&B new-comer Shadina is a legend in the making. Singing since she was only two years old. Shadina started a dance group, Raw Fusion, at the tender age of ten and made a few appearances on The Apollo Theater stage. At 13 years old, OTIS WILLIAMS of THE TEMPTATIONS discovered Shadina. Otis took her into the studio and saw her talent right away. Her mother Topaz, is an accomplished singer in her own right, produced and managed by the team of TEDDY RILEY and GENE GRIFFIN. Reppin' Bmore to the fullest while globe-trotting and making moves, she takes time out of her schedule to discuss the present, past, and her future goals. ”
