“Cheryl B has made something very unique. “The Listening” is a huge collaboration with thirty voices singing the lyrics that transfer a message of hope for a better world. Based on a speech about the important role of unconditional love in the achievement of global piece.”

“The Listening” is a choral piece inspired by a 1967 MLK speech (“Beyond Vietnam: A Time To Break Silence”) and features MLK’s goddaughter, Donzaleigh Abernathy. The piece is a call to act, to listen, and to speak for the unheard voices. The song will be featured on, in Harper’s Bazar, and several radio stations and media outlets who have interviewed Donzaleigh about it. We are doing a strong promotional push during Black History Month. More info at
