90s R&B singer Shanice Wilson, known for her hit song "I Love Your Smile," shares another proud mom moment after her daughter celebrated yet another milestone in her life, particularly graduating from high school. 


The Grammy Award-nominated singer was once a Billboard chart topper with her hit singles "I Love Your Smile" and "Silent Prayer," which were singles from her 1991 album "Inner Child." Now, she's a doting mom to two kids whom she is clearly very proud of.


Her 17-year-old daughter Imani Shekinah recently graduated college, and it was another milestone that Shanice proudly celebrated with the rest of her family. Imani herself shared a series of photos from that day, where her mom and dad happily showed affection to her after she received her diploma. 

From Career to Family

In the '90s, Shanice tried to top her first album by trying to make two more records afterward. Unfortunately for her, they were not as successful as "Inner Child." This resulted in her making songs for movie soundtracks and singing background vocals for fellow artists such as Toni Braxton and Usher instead. 


In 2000, she shifted her focus towards starting a family, marrying actor and comedian Flex Alexander, whom he shares daughter Imani Shekinah and son Elijah Alexander with. 


Now, the 45-year-old singer has a gorgeous high school graduate, who is her spitting image. 

A Graduation Rite

Before graduation, Imani headed to prom and her proud mom shared that she actually cried while realizing that her daughter was growing up way too fast. 


“My baby @imani_knox went to the prom yesterday with @isaiah.steward I cried so hard because she’s growing up fast.. Imani I’m so proud of you. Congratulations on your 4.0-grade point average! Love your dress by @lsodesigns make up @acreebeauty and hair by @yourcreditstylist.”

In her caption, she also made sure to note that on top of being such a beautiful woman, she is also extremely intelligent, maintaining a 4.0-grade point average, which made her a graduating honor student. 

Congratulations, Imani, and her proud parents!
