Singer Sarah-Jane Finds A Place To Shine On "Letter To The Moon"

By JR on 12:57 PM

Filed Under: ,


"In this song I'm writing a letter to the one I never meant to hurt. It's about a complicated relationship. During that time I felt a deep desire for somebody but also went through emotions of jealousy and insecurity. Imagine that the one you love loves you back, but you can't be together. Because you'll hurt somebody else thats dear to you. It was a time when I could not express my thoughts and frustrations about the situation, so I wrote it down." - Sarah-Jane

Funkadelic Singer & D'Angelo Writer Kendra Foster Visits The B-Side


"As Kendra Foster circled the globe multiple times with George Clinton & Parliament/Funkadelic, she made a few pit stops along the way—which included scooping up two Grammys for her work on D’Angelo’s Black Messiah and writing and recording a solo album infused with her heart, thoughts and musical ministry.


On the heels of her work co-writing the Grammy-winning song, “Really Love,” with D’Angelo, she is now prepared to release her songs, which she nurtured and cradled as she collaborated with legendary artists. Her soul-based fusion is peppered with jazz, funk, hip hop, rock, classical, world, electronica and gospel. “The music sonically and subject-wise is multidimensional, like life, and soulful like the spirit resonating in it,” Kendra says. “I don’t intend to preach—my vantage point is often from conversations I’ve had with myself. But they often also relate universally to most anybody.”"
