Enjoy Celebrity Radio’s Sheila Ferguson Life Story Interview Three Degrees…
Sheila Ferguson shot to fame as the Star of the Three Degrees and is since best known as an accomplished actress, writer and a world authority on Soul Food, African America’s traditional cuisine.
Born in Phildelphia USA & now living in Mallorca, Sheila’s first ambition was to be a psychologist. However, a successful solo singing career put these ambitions on hold.
By 1965 she was recording regularly as well as appearing at all the top music venues including the Apollo, where she shared the bill with Marvin Gaye.
The Three Degrees with Sheila as lead became the most successful female group of the nineteen seventies, spearheading the rise of the Philadelphia International label ‘Dirty Ol’ Man’, ‘Take Good Care of Yourself’, ‘Year of Decision’ and most brilliantly ‘When Will I See You Again’.
She has appeared on endless top West End and TV shows including Des O’Connor Tonight, Wogan, The Brian Conley Show as well as The Royal Variety Performance with the cast of Thoroughly Modern Millie and she has also appeared on Live At Her Majesty’s.
In 2015 Sheila is back touring across the UK with the ‘Time Of My Life’ tour with David Gest and a host of international Stars. GET TICKETS HERE!
Enjoy an Exclusive Skype interview with Sheila & Alex Belfield from Mallorca:
The Three Degrees toured all over the world attracting a huge and loyal fan base in countries ranging from Japan to Australia and, of course, the UK.
The group also made an explosive appearance in the Oscar-winning movie ‘The French Connection’.
Now living in Britain, Sheila felt that it was very important for her daughters to appreciate their African-American Heritage. Out of this desire came her bestselling book ‘Soul Food’ published in 1989.
