Shanda Taylor was born and raised in the Chicago area and is one of seven children. Being a part of a family where her father was a drummer, producer, and writer for Grammy Award winning R. Kelly, her love for the industry grew and she knew she was destined to become an inspiring artist and performer. Shanda met her husband, Willie Taylor, formerly of Day26, at the young age of 16 while he worked with her R&B/Pop girl group, X'clusive. She put her career on hold because she was blessed with two beautiful children by the name of Kavion and Layla-Marie.
Known as a dancer who inspired others, Shanda became an exotic dancer and helped to keep her family afloat while her husband focused on his craft. She joined another girl group alongside Apryl Jones that didn't work out but she gained a great friend in the process. Recently relocated to LA with her family, Shanda is focused on making her mark in the entertainment industry.
