With Offering, acclaimed vocalist Charenee Wade presents her unique take on the revolutionary work of the powerful musical and political collaboration between Gil Scott-Heron and Brian Jackson. The first woman artist to produce a full-length album of the duo’s work, Wade brings her own soulful interpretation to these numbers through her new arrangements and vocal prowess.
Knowing where we have been before is extremely important, because it gives context about what is happening now. Gil Scott-Heron makes me think about the responsibility and power of the artist to raise social consciousness. Imagine if more artists used their platforms to positively shift consciousness like he and artists of his day did. He inspires me to do my own thing, to not be afraid to say what I want to say.
