Soul Fixin'

True 'Love' Doesn't Hurt
Ethiopian-born, Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter Wayna has released a video for 'My Love' from the album Higher Ground. Directed by Antar Hanif, the thought provoking video addresses the difficult topic of domestic abuse. Wayna, an admirer of greats Minnie Riperton, Billie Holiday, Stevie Wonder, and Donny Hathaway, is able to find a great balance between simplicity and melodramatic. Needless to say, the video is a clear example of artistic creativity and excellence. Enjoy!
