About Sherri: Independent R&B / Hip-Hop artist Shirley “Sherri” Curtis was born and raised in Washington D.C. in a small neighborhood called Brookland. Her talent was discovered in a first-grade talent show singing “Midnight Train to Georgia” by Gladys Knight and the Pips. Her mother, Brenda Anderson, passed away from breast cancer before she reached age two and from that point on, she was raised by her single father, Robert Curtis. Inspired by her father’s phenomenal singing voice and “Oldies but Goodies” music, Sherri began to participate in dance and talent competitions and by her first year of high school she began writing and recording her own music. Her music is available via SoundCloud and all other platforms.
