The Singer: Born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, Sheila
Vayenás is a classically trained singer and dancer. Her
professional career started very early. Life on the road was not
her cup of tea, so she retired from professional musical theatre
and began singing in blues and supper clubs around the country.
She began teaching voice and dance in Rockford, Illinois, and
still does. She loves performing, and in her words, “I don’t ask
the key. I don’t ask the style. I just sing it.” She wanted
to produce the most eclectic album possible, and with her three
octave voice, that was an easy task. From Webber to Willie, it’s
Sheila’s passion for music is equaled only by her love for
animals. She is deeply involved, and well-connected in rescuing
animals all over the country, and works tirelessly to save as
many “fur babies” as possible, often using her own finances. She
educates communities about so-called "shelters" and pet stores
that support the puppy mill industry. This project was conceived
to help finance her rescue work. For more about companion
