Shana (born Shana Petrone, May 8, 1972, Park Ridge, Illinois) was raised in Fort Lauderdale, Florida[1] and is an American singer of Freestyle music, dance music and country music.

Shana released an album in 1989 entitled I Want You on Vision Records, which peaked at No. 165 on the Billboard Top 200.[2] The album yielded two U.S. hit singles in 1990, "I Want You" (Billboard Hot 100 peak No. 40) and "You Can't Get Away" (Hot 100 peak No. 82).[3][4]

After her successes with dance music, Shana disappeared from the mainstream music scene. She reappeared as a country music singer under her full given name, and released three singles with Epic Nashville, "Heaven Bound" in 1998 and "This Time" in 1999. "Heaven Bound" was a hit on CMT and reached No. 60 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart.[5] Her third single on country radio was "Something Real", also supported by a music video. Despite three singles, Shana's country music album on Epic Nashville was never released. She is still recording country music but is no longer signed to a major record label.
