90s R&B singer Shanice, better known for her hit song “I Love Your Smile,” is no longer the charming teenager that captivated audiences across the country. Now in her forties, Shanice is the proud mom of two grown kids, and her daughter recently celebrated a milestone: going to prom.

The Grammy Award-nominated artist had the peak of her career in the early ‘90s, when she entered the Billboard chart with the hit singles "I Love Your Smile" and "Silent Prayer," from her 1991 album “Inner Child.”

She released two more records after that but failed to duplicate the success of “Inner Child,” although she kept working making songs for movie soundtracks and singing background vocals for other artists such as Toni Braxton and Usher.

In 2000, Shanice married actor and comedian Flex Alexander, with whom he shares son Elijah Alexander, 15, and daughter Imani Shekinah, 17.

THEY GROW UP SO FAST

In the pic, the girl rocked a yellow gown tied to the neck with thin straps which also featured a thigh-high slit. Her date, Isaiah Steward, looked dapper in a classic black tuxedo with a white shirt and matching bowtie.

Imani’s long hair was styled in waves, and she added a bit of flair to her look with a gold flower hair pin.

Although it hasn’t been revealed where or if Imani is going to college, the girl has a bright future ahead with her 4.0-grade point average.

RETURN TO THE SPOTLIGHT

Meanwhile, Shanice recently made her comeback to the music scene with a new single titled “He Won’t,” which is part of her upcoming sixth album release, the first since her 2006 album “Every Woman Dreams.”

Talking to Urban Bridgez about the new project and how it was born, Shanice revealed that she’s working with a company called Heritage Music Group (HMG) through Universal Music.

“Originally I signed to do a single deal. Then we went in and started recording, and the label got really excited with the music,” she said. “So now, we’re working on a full album. So it’s coming soon. I hope you guys like it!”

Despite being away from the spotlight for a while, Shanice still has some die-hard fans who are excited about what’s to come for the singer and her lovely family.
