Biography[edit]

In 1985, she released a first single entitled "Panthère noire", but it passed unnoticed. Three years later, she experienced success with the first single from the album Complètement mec, "Élodie mon rêve", dedicated to her niece. Only released in France, the song hit #10 on the SNEP Top 50 and was charted for 16 weeks.[1] The next singles, "Au jour le jour", "Un Instant de vie" and "Les Sentiments", were failures.[2] In 1997, Shona unsuccessfully tried to take up with her singing career.
