In 2011 NARAS (The National Academy of Recording and Sciences) and the 53rd Grammy Awards stopped to take notice as Shea Chambers was placed on the NARAS ballot for the first round of voting for “Best New Artist”. Shea didn't make the top five nominations but still has a first round NARAS nomination to her credit. In 2012 NARAS for the 54th Grammy Awards, Shea was placed once again on the top ten NARAS ballot for "Best Duet by a Duo or Group" for a song she was featured on with Jose Feliciano. She was again recognized by NARAS and the Grammy association and has been honored with these great credits to her name.
