Jackie White a.k.a. Shaloma started singing in the Pentecostal church when she was a little girl in her East London neighbourhood.
In the mid eighties Shaloma managed to attract the attention of a wider audience when she became the lead singer and songwriter of the UK vocal group Natural Beauty.
Natural Beauty did well and even had a hit called “Nice up dancee”, which was produced by ex Matumbi drummer Jah Bunny.
This song actually was part of the soundtrack of a Hollywood film called “Wild thing”.
Shaloma joined Mad Professor’s Ariwa label in 1993 when she started recording songs for the album “Slavery”, which was retitled “Good Vibrations” when it was released on compact disc in 1999.
