Cobe Obeah - True Colors (featuring Nneka)

Music Television presents Nneka with Cobe Obeah

One artist who has been stumping for the common man in her native Nigeria and others around the world who feel marginalized by the various Police States around the globe that exist, is a wonderfully deep prolific recording artist named Nneka.

On her own, Nneka is a powerful voice, who occasionally collaborates and lends herself to others who have something important to say.

Nneka wrote this about one such song, featured below, which she participated in: "TRUE COLORS... the new Video by COBE OBEAH feat. NNEKA inspired by the american police, upcoming elections in Nigeria, hate, Boko haram, War, breakups, and love..."

While the industry is applauding D'Angelo for his recent release, Black Messiah, we hope that the industry also embraces other artists of deep substance like Nneka, who has been in the trenches, fighting the fight non-stop since she first hit the scene, slightly more than a decade ago. This woman embodies the activist spirit of those like Bob Marley, Nina Simone, Fela Kuti and John Lennon. She is the real deal. Her friend Cobe Obeah may just be another artist of substance to keep on our radar.

MusicTelevision.Com presents Tim Minchin

This morning, Gaby Moreno shared a note with her friends that read: "Last night I saw Tim Minchin performing at Largo. He played this song. Can't tell you how much it moved me..such a beautiful Christmas song from an "non religion" perspective..."

Tim Minchin wrote the following about his song:  "A sentimental song about Christmas. This version is taken from the Australian 'Ready For This?' DVD. As in previous years, all proceeds from the sale of this song during the months of November, December and January will go to the National Autistic Society (NAS)."

The latest from Gaby Moreno - A Beautiful Christmas Album

My brain fogs up with love and tears of joy fill my eyes when I listen to the music of Gaby Moreno. A meaningful description using words is way too elusive. Gaby's authentic essence and the unmanufactured beauty of her music does just fine, speaking for itself. GC

Below is the latest music video from Gaby Moreno to the song titled El Primer Noel off her most recent Christmas Album titled Posada. Billboard Magazine's Judy Cantor-Navas recently recently dubbed Posada "An Instant Latin Christmas Classic".

This is what Gaby wrote to describe her record: "Posada" is a collection of traditional Christmas songs, recalling the years when I was a young girl living in Guatemala and singing in my church choir. These are the songs we would sing during the month of December at church on Sundays, at Advent family gatherings and for the traditional Latin American celebration "Las Posadas" which begin on Dec. 16th - Gaby Moreno
