LET’S DIVE INTO CH’AN THE ARTIST WORLD

Today the spotlight is on a young promising Barbadian songstress and lyricist. Her musical style is very soulful; it’s tonic and stimulating to the mind. Listening to her music will boost your mood up. When you think of Barbados, you think of soca and calypso, but Ch’an takes her audience past the Caribbean borders. Indeed real and pure music is boundless and timeless. Her YouTube cover series was her choice to cover brilliant artists’ songs the average listeners wouldn’t necessarily know. We’re very thankful for this series because this adds lots of richness to her music (we want to hear more than just the regular famous singers). We are also thankful for the discovery of unknown talents. This young lady has such amazing vocals, and she genuinely loves to share her beautiful gift with others; good for us!

Her lyrics tell profound and exciting stories, her songs uplift and empower. No matter what you may encounter in life, there is always greatness awaiting you. Keep up the fantastic work, Ch’an, the artist; we see you from Barbados and worldwide.

Neteral Celebrity: Remembering Teena Marie

On December 26th we lost another soul music icon, Ms.Teena (Lady T) Marie. Those of us from a certain age group can remember growing up listening to her music as it blasted its way through the inner city neighborhoods of America and even abroad.  The richness and soul of her music made us marvel at the talents of this multi faceted women. She started out as a protege of funk legend Rick James under the Motown label. She soon carved out her own niche as a solo artist with a number of memorable tunes that will stay with us forever not to mention the new music that she has put out over the last 5 years. She passed away in her sleep at the age of 54 in her Pasadena, California home. She was found by her 19 year old daughter, Alia Rose who’s also a singer, the day after Teena threw a surprise birthday party for her. Many musical artists have commented on her death and have even sung her most popular tunes in honor of the fallen musical legend not to mention the millions of Black people that were shocked by the news of her passing, myself included. Teena Marie you will be missed but your music will live on.
