new signing: sunshine anderson

April, 20 2021 Missing Link Music

Though she sang in musicals and talent shows throughout her childhood, the Charlotte, NC native Sunshine Anderson was discovered while she was waiting in line in a cafeteria at North Carolina Central University, the institution where she earned a B.S. in criminal justice.

A friend of producer/Soulife A&R Vice President Mike City heard Anderson humming while she waited and introduced her to City. After she graduated from college, Anderson moved to Washington, D.C., and took a government job in human resources, but eventually relocated to Los Angeles, where she worked with City on her debut. Propelled by the single "Heard It All Before," Anderson's first album -- 2001's Your Woman -- reached number two on Billboard's R&B albums chart and eventually went gold, selling over 800,000 copies.
