From there, he went onto an IMTA (International Modelling and Talent Association) competition where he was sought after by agents and managers in the entertainment industry, and went on to audition for major motion feature films such as Notorious BIG. Shaquille began singing at the age of 12 in his church choir, leading solos and the praise team. From there, Shaquille took the entertainment industry by storm. He was personally chosen by actor David Boreanaz to feature in Fox’s hit show Bones. He has appeared on Disney Channel’s Ant Farm, as well as a featured dancer on hit MTV Show Awkward. Shaquille released a EP titled I’m Yours, and achieved more popularity by being the opening act for Disney Channel star China Ann McClain at the legendary House of Blues Anaheim. The following year, he performed on stage at the 2014 NAFCA African Oscars where he led a tribute to the late legendary Bobby Womack. He received a standing ovation and was congratulated by many of his peers in the entertainment industry on his performance, as well as actors Keith David, Blair Underwood and the Womack family. His career is off to an amazing start, and this is only the beginning. He released a new EP in 2015 entitled Never End which got him placed on Spotify, iHeartRadio and Pandora worldwide. He was also delighted to have the honour of performing the national anthem in front of 56,000 people for the Los Angeles Dodgers at the Dodgers Stadium in Anaheim, California. 2017 has started out great for Shaquille, working with legendary photographer Karen Bystedt (Andy Warhol, R&B superstar Chris Brown, pop star Sean Kingston) on her King Collection, and appearing as a special guest "Music King" honouree at her event, a mini concert for press & celebrity attendees.
