KAREN WOLFE BRINGS PEOPLE TOGETHER WITH HER NEW POWERFUL SINGLE “STAY TOGETHER”
(FEAT. CALVIN RICHARDSON)

With multiple music awards and over 50 Soul and Blues top recordings under her belt, singer Karen Wolfe has taken her career one step further with the release of her newest duet called “Stay Together” featuring R&B artist Calvin Richardson. The new song, written by Dee Dee Simon and produced by Sweet Success Records, follows the success of her previous hit release “Just Goodbye” - a song that is full of razor-sharp statements about standing up for oneself by leaving those undeserving people behind.

“This is the right time for me to come out with this song with all of the sickness, violence, and loss of life (in the world) now. I felt I owed it to my fans to respond with a song that (can) touch not only a Man and Woman, but the whole family which I believe this song does say,” says Karen.

Stay Together” may sound like a spiritual/gospel song with her deep soulful tone commanding each run and every note, followed by another vocal arrangement harmonizing in the background that is also wrapped in a bass-heavy, polished submerged-sounding production.

RECORDING ARTIST CREATES VIRAL ANTHEM TO KEEP SPOTLIGHT ON POLICE BRUTALITY

Nationwide -- Emerging artist Reggie Boone says that he wrote ‘No More’ after he sat in his living room watching the news about George Floyd, another black man, a human being’s life being taken and it scared people. Boone, who was discovered by Steve Harvey, says he writes lyrics to promote the message of equality, ending police brutality and the power behind genuinely getting to know each other beyond our skin color. [Watch the video here]

Reggie says that he sees the Derek Chauvin guilty verdict as definitely a pivotal step. But with the tragic shooting of Duante Wright, Boone continues his mission through his music to raise awareness about the violence incited against minorities with a message of upliftment to every human being, reminding them to love God and each other. Radio personality Michael Baisden premiered Reggie’s ‘No More’ video and it quickly racked up over 75k views. ‘I want to support artists like Reggie Boone, who like the greats, Marvin Gaye, Gill Scott Heron, and Curtis Mayfield create music with a message’ Baisden said. The video has been shared on various platforms garnering support for its overwhelming positive message and call for change.

AUTHOR TELLS HIS STORY ABOUT GROWING IN EXTREME POVERTY WITH A SCHIZOPHRENIC MOM

Harold Phifer has announced the publication of his second book, a collection of autobiographical short stories exploring his sad and often appalling upbringing in Columbus, Mississippi.  Kept secret for more than 50 years, Phifer’s childhood was largely forgotten until an explosion during a job in Afghanistan forced him to take some time off to recover in a paradise beach resort in Thailand.

While there, he met an unusual but compassionate stranger who pulled him into a long discussion about his experiences growing up. Hours later, Phifer finally found a measure of peace from the ghosts of his past and began planning out the stories that would later appear in Surviving Chaos. The book is available for purchase via Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Audible.

“How do you sum up your childhood in a few sentences? Childhood is such a rich and nuanced tapestry of people, places, events, and formative influences – all shaping you in ways that can take a lifetime to uncover,” said Phifer.

“And that’s probably true for everyone. But when you have a bad childhood? Well, you shove most of that way down deep for decades.

I have overcome many challenges and obstacles in my life, many of them entirely by myself. My hope is that my story may help someone smile when they are having a bad day, and remind young readers that no matter how bad and hopeless things may seem in the present, the power is within each of us to change our future.”
