Shekhinah Donnell Early Life

Growing up in a different racial family was not as tricky for Shekhinah as one would expect for an average black child. She revealed during the interview that during her childhood, she never felt left out, but felt so much love.

At 17, she played in season 7 of the South African idols of M-Net. It finished among the 32 best competitors of this edition. The following year, she participated again and finished sixth.
