MIG Records recording artist, NINA SHAW, has been selected to be a part of the ''longest running TV program of any genre, in the entire history of first-run, nationally syndicated TV programming'', Don Cornelius and Tribune Entertainment's renowned "Soul Train" (2004 performers include Nina Sky, rap artist Master P, Jackie-O, hip-hop's Murphy Lee, Brian McKnight).

Filming at Paramount Studios in Hollywood, California, Don Cornelius is notorious for discovering the hottest, cutting edge talent in the world of Soul music and his choice of NINA SHAW to participate on "Soul Train" is every indication of what is in store -- a star has been born.

An astounding newcomer to the world of R&B, NINA SHAW's debut album, "For You," launches across North America February 15, 2005 on MIG Records through Navarre Entertainment. A distinctive new sound in a world of homogeny, NINA uniquely fuses Motown, gospel, sensuality and her own personal style to bring a new measure to R&B.

Born in Detroit, NINA grew up quickly, knowing from the age of three that singing was to be her god-given vocation. Influenced by her mother, the church and iconic figures such as Aretha Franklin, Anita Baker and Aaliyah, NINA led her church choir by the age of nine and at twelve she entered and won her first talent show performing Karen White's "Super Woman!"

From Detroit, Nina moved to Louisiana to attend Southern University, winning countless talent contests along the way, but it wasn''t until she continued her westward progress to California that she met Dr. Henry Jones, owner of MIG Records, who immediately saw the star Nina is to become. "Nina has that something special, the indefinable ''it'' factor, which, combined with vocal prowess and an unequivocal performance style, makes for an very optimistic future!"

Having signed with MIG Records, NINA SHAW began the process of building her debut album, "For You," bringing industry heavyweights such as "Bangladesh" to her launch single, "My Way."

Already in discussions to do both a North American and European tour with an A-List line-up, NINA SHAW is one artist that anyone who prides themselves on being the ''first to know'' should get a hold of, as it is only a matter of moments before she becomes a household of name.

Beyond her commitment to her music, NINA SHAW, like her co-artists at MIG Records, is an Ambassador for the Digital Divide -- a mandate set forth and championed by MIG Records owner, Dr. Henry Jones, which focuses on bringing awareness of the digital age to youth worldwide. Dr. Jones has taken a leading position through his umbrella of companies including MIG Records, and Marina Investors Group, that by bringing education, particularly of global village skills (Internet, cellular and satellite technology) to those who have not, will significant work to create a unilateral, unbiased future, "the internet," says Dr. Jones, "is the ultimate equalizer; it knows no handicap, no race, no religion. Everyone co-exists, equally." As an artist, NINA SHAW brings the Digital Divide home by encouraging her fans to communicate with her via her website and email, and making ring tones of her music and instant message icons available for download.
