Sunshine Anderson Biography
Though she sang in musicals and talent shows throughout her childhood, Charlotte, NC native Sunshine Anderson was discovered while she was waiting in line in a cafeteria at North Carolina Central University, 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 2001 debut album Your Woman and found a manager in critically-acclaimed singer Macy Gray.
