Shawne Jackson Returns...
"Never ever did I want to be a singer" is not something that a middle-aged
Torontonian expects to hear coming from the lips of Shawne Jackson, of all
Not when she and some friends at Toronto's British Methodist Episcopal
church emerged from the choir as a high-energy "girl group", the Tiaras.
High-talent too, as other Tiaras alumni include Colina Phillips, Jackie
Richardson, Betty Richardson and Brenda Russell.
Not when she left the group to take up the post as house vocalist at the
legendary Bluenote, fronting the Rogues, who would soon hit the big time as
the Mandala. In a nod to their shared past, the Mandala called in Shawne to
appear as one of the guest singers on the classic "Faith" track on the
group's one album.
