We are back with another Top 5!!
Music is our main source of therapy, so I love putting the Top 5 list together.
First on the list this week is “Tell Everybody” a song by the Global Goals Campaign ONE,Cofounded by Bono. It’s is an international campaigning and advocacy organization of nearly 7 million people taking action to end extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa. Written, recorded, produced and released by Africans for the world, the song attempts to ignite the political passions of young people to hold their leaders to account in meeting the Global Goals for Sustainable Development: to fight inequality and fix climate change by 2030.

Sauti Sol- Isabella
The Kenyan afro-pop band has released their new single “Isabella”. It’s the sixth single off Sauti Sol’s upcoming album “Live and Die in Afrika”. (Which I’m anxiously waiting for)This ballad truly represents Sauti Sol’s soulful side and shows how dynamic and versatile they are with their music and songwriting skills. After dancing “Sura Yako” with President Barack Obama, winning awards and shooting their latest video in Las Vegas, this group is flourishing and I look forward to much more from them.
