Jazz bass player John Patitucci, and worship leader Osby Berry. "I've been pasturing for 15 years,"
said the Baltimore native about overseeing The Tabernacle at Greater Bethlehem Temple aka The Tab. "When my pen is activated,

of THE WEEK
(New York,NY) - The rhythms, the sound, and the emotions that it brings,
everything that is great about Soul music, is what you will get from The Shindellas' debut album "Hits
That Stick Like Grits," dropping on September 12, 2021 (Weirdo Workshop/The Orchard). The brainchild of Chuck
and Claude, who handpicked members Kasi Jones, Stacy Johnson, and Tamara Chauniece under the belief that when women come together,
powerful change can happen. Written and produced by these hitmakers, this 14-track album showcases each voice and how well
they blend to sound like one voice. The album's lead single "Money" has become a fan favorite, with the video garnering
over 2.3M views on YouTube. Other releases featured on the album include "Fear Has No Place," "Volcano Love,"
and "When You Are Lonely."
Soul Music, by definition, incorporates elements of rhythm and blues and Gospel
music, popularized by African-Americans. And let's face it, Soul music has been the base for telling the stories of Black
lives forever. Today's times require a fresh modern feel or "New American Soul," coined by multi-Grammy-nominated
songwriting-production duo Chuck Harmony and Claude Kelly, a.k.a. Louis York (the masterminds behind some of the most popular
and liberating hits for artists like Rihanna, Jennifer Hudson, Whitney Houston, Miley Cyrus, Fantasia, Jazmine Sullivan).
The Shindellas recently made history as the first R&B band to perform at the 2021
CMT Awards. Since hitting the scene back
in 2017, the Nashville-based band has been on a mission to make an impact in music with their unique sound and style. The
Shindellas will resonate with listeners as their sound is very familiar and will draw a comparison to acts like The Supremes,
The Clark Sisters, The Jones Girls, and The Pointer Sister, as well as the ladies bring a new fresh take with an effervescence
of vibrant vocals and passion.
