Growing up in Nigeria, Charity Ekeke sang in a choir and saved her gift money to buy a Record Song Book every six months. This book had songs from famous recording artists especially British recording artist. Learning these songs was how she spent her free time. She would lie down next to her family’s turntable, trying to look inside and wonder how they were able to squeeze people inside the turntable to sing.
Once in the United States, current events, both domestic and abroad, along with her own personal struggles inspired her as a singer/songwriter. Her songs are mostly up tempo pop/alternative rock style. When her initial attempts to produce her songs were unsuccessful as a result of trying to balancing work and raising children on her own with pursuing her artistic dreams, she continued to write songs as an outlet for her creative passion.
Charity did not give up. After raising her children, in 2015 she made a single, “Talk To Me With Your Eyes”. Charity very much enjoyed the process leading her to make her debut album titled “She”. Three of the eleven songs on her debut album were written over 20 years ago. However, the issues that prompted those songs are as relevant today as they were then. My music comes from a place of truth, authenticity, and fun. “She”- a multi-genre album has something for everyone.
Although it is not as challenging today as it once was to get one’s music out there, making and producing music is still a difficult endeavor. Charity believes that it is only through God’s blessing that this is possible and is still amazed that she made an album at this point in her life. Presently, Charity is putting efforts into promoting her debut album, “She”. Check out her music at Soundcloud and get them at all digital download sites.
