Sunshine Anderson Weds Longtime Boyfriend

Expecting a Baby Girl This November

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - August 10, 2007) - Beloved songstress Sunshine Anderson was married Saturday, July 21st, at the Palms Hotel Miami (South Beach) to longtime boyfriend and Kansas City Chiefs football player, Christopher A. Terry. Sunshine J.S. Anderson, who is also expecting a baby girl, Alexia Skyy Terry, in November 2007, celebrated the day with about 30 of her closest friends and family.

Anderson's new single, "Wear The Crown" was serviced to radio this month and is already seeing rotation at Music Choice prior to an official add date.

Anderson's Music World Music debut, "Sunshine At Midnight," was released on 1/23/07, nabbing the #4 position on the Indie Albums Chart its first week out. "Sunshine At Midnight" is Anderson's first offering since taking the world of music by storm in 2001 with her Soul Life/Atlantic debut "Your Woman," which exploded onto the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart at #5, spawned the runaway smash #1 hit "Heard It All Before," and went on to sell 750,000 units and garner a Grammy nomination. With "Your Woman," Anderson was embraced industry wide and enjoyed genre-busting mainstream successes that included appearances on "The Rosie O'Donnell Show" and "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," as well as heavy video rotation on MTV and VH1, in addition to BET.

Anderson has been touted for her rich vocals, no-nonsense lyrics and classic soul sensibilities, drawing comparisons to Mary J. Blige. Supporter and friend Macy Gray has heralded Anderson as "a star through and though," adding that the vocalist/ songwriter "has a fabulous way of being every girl and completely unique at the same time."
