Percussion icon and 2014 She Rocks Award honoree  Sheila E. is releasing her very own memoir titled The Beat of my Own Drum.

Scheduled for release Sept. 2, the book is now available for pre-order through

According to the  book description, The Beat of My Own Drum is both a walk through four decades of Latin and pop music—from her tours with Marvin Gaye, Lionel Richie, Prince, and Ringo Starr—to her own solo career. At the same time, it’s also a heartbreaking, ultimately redemptive look at how the sanctity of music can save a person’s life. Having endured sexual abuse as a child, Sheila credits her parents, music, and God with giving her the will to carry on and to build a lasting legacy.
