Shauna Vincent Wiki – Shauna Vincent Biography
Shauna Vincent is the daughter of Angela Bofill. She is a Latin American singer-songwriter. A New York native, Bofill began her professional career in the mid–1970s. Bofill is most known for singles such as, “This Time I’ll Be Sweeter”, “Angel of the Night” and “I Try”. Bofill’s career spans over four decades.
Bofill began her professional career, singing during her teenage years. Bofill performed with Ricardo Marrero & the Group and Dance Theater of Harlem chorus before being introduced to Dave Grusin and Larry Rosen of the jazz label GRP Records by Dave Valentin, her friend and jazz flutist. Grusin and Rosen signed Bofill and produced her first album, Angie, in 1978. Angie was well-received both critically and commercially and included the chart single “This Time I’ll Be Sweeter” (co-written by Gwen Guthrie and Haras Fyre), and Bofill’s sprawling jazz composition, “Under the Moon and Over the Sky”. Less than a year later, a second album, Angel of the Night was released and outperformed its predecessor. The album included the chart singles “What I Wouldn’t Do (For the Love of You)” and the up-tempo title track, as well as the song “I Try”, written by Bofill and covered by Will Downing in 1991. The reception of these albums positioned Bofill as one of the first Latina singers to find success in the R&B and jazz markets.

Singer says She Is on the ‘Right Side of the Grass
Angela Bofill is not dead. On October 24, the singer became the victim of a death hoax. Bofill, 66, corrected the rumor in a Facebook post.
The singer wrote, “My Manager Rich Engel just informed me that I died. Thank you everyone for reaching out, but I am very much on the right side of the grass.”
The Virginian-Pilot’s Rashod Ollison wrote in October 2016 that Bofill “had the makings to be a much bigger star than she was, if only producers had known exactly what to do with her.” Ollison also wrote that Bofill passed on her musical stylings to “a fresh-faced choir girl from Newark named Whitney Houston.”

In 2011, Bofill told The Washington Post that she was performing again after suffering two strokes since 2005. Bofill said, “I feel happy performing again. I need a crowd. In the blood, entertain. Any time a crowd comes to see me, I’m surprised. Nosing no more and still people come. Wow. Impressed.”
In the same interview, Bofill said that she was raised in the Bronx section of New York City to a Cuban father and a Puerto Rican mother. Following her strokes, Bofill could no longer sing but presented her stage show “The Angela Bofill Experience” in which she told anecdotes about her show business career to an audience.
Following a successful music career during the 1970s and 1980s, Bofill told the Post that her album sales slowed down. Bofill said, “I asked God: ‘Give me break,’ Tell the truth, I need a break. I’m going, going. No break for a long time. Over 26 years, no break. I prayed one day, ‘God, I need a break.’ Bam! That’s when the stroke hit.” Bofill said she was driving with her brother-in-law in California in 2006 when she suffered her first stroke. The second stroke occurred in 2007. Bofill told The Philadelphia Tribune in 2012 that at the time of her stroke, she did not have health insurance. In December 2007, a benefit concert featuring Carlos Santana and Bonnie Raitt was held in San Fransico. Among those in attendance was Bofill’s daughter Shauna Vincent from the singer’s previous marriage to Rich Vincent.
Bofill told The Bay State Banner in a 2011 interview, “I’m glad I’m not dead yet. The stroke affected me greatly … movement, speech. I wish I could sing again. It’s a lesson in patience.” Bofill said in the same interview that she began singing at the age of four and turned professional at 16. Bofill has a bachelor’s degree from the Manhattan School of Music. The singer said that the music of Latin icon Tito Puente was a constant in her home growing up.
During one concert, Bofill told The Bay State Banner that Oscar-winning actor Denzel Washington came up to her backstage to tell her she was his “favorite singer.” Bofill added, “The embarrassing thing was that I didn’t know who he was. My assistant almost fainted.”
