With Special Guest: Jeremy Joel

The Greater Michigan Chapter continues our concert series with a performance from Charity and Special Guest Jeremey Joel!

Charity’s music paints the kind of picture you’d see hanging on your grandmother’s wall. It’s sacred, strong.. some elements of love in there, and let’s face it- Black. Her storytelling gives away that her very first guitar teacher played Folk music. The organ in the production reveals she’s a preacher’s daughter. Her use of metaphors points to her English degree, but her hidden nods to writers like Nikki Giovanni and Ntozake Shange point to her HBCU alma mater Tennessee State University. Her style, love for fashion and frequent show stopping (blood orange) hairstyles are naturally compliments of her hometown Detroit. Charity’s originals cover subject matter like religion, loss, self-love, and coming-of-age with a disarming kind of vulnerability. Her songs and live shows are a sanctuary, a therapy session, a beauty shop, a loved one’s living room. And as for her genre- you wonder if it’s R&B, if it’s Neo-Soul, if it’s Folk, if it’s Gospel? But you can’t help but realize after a listen to her debut album Tender Headed or her following holiday EP Seasoned that Charity is Motown.
