Gospel Singer Releases Children’s Book About Her Grandparents

Renowned singer-songwriter and broadcaster Sharlene-Monique recently released her second book, A New Life, which celebrates the hope, courage and determination of the Windrush generation.

Sharlene-Monique has navigated the loss of her grandparents Winston and Mavis Anderson, by sharing their inspiring journey in A New Life. The couple migrated to the UK from Jamaica in 1958 to lay the foundation for a new life for their family.

Aimed at children aged 3–7 years, the experiences of the Andersons’ great-granddaughter, Tahlia, unfold as a poignant narrative. A New Life has been made all the more special by a TikTok video that captured the spirited dance of Sharlene-Monique’s 90-year-old grandparents. The video went viral and has been viewed over 500,000 times across multiple social media platforms.

Sharlene-Monique is set to go on a tour to share the book with young readers. She said:

When I shared the video of my grandparents dancing, I had no idea the response would be in the thousands. It brought so much joy to people. This book will ensure their legacy will live on for many years to come, and I am so proud of that.
